Get your blasters ready fellow Star Wars fans, for the newest trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is coming to our galaxy very soon. According to Making Star Wars, we will be getting our next glimpse at the Gareth Edwards-directed film next Friday on July 15 – the day in which a panel on the film will be held at Star Wars Celebration Europe, where Edwards and LucasFilm head Kathleen Kennedy will discuss the upcoming film, along with some special guests (expect much of the film’s ensemble to make an appearance).
According to a TV listing that Making Star Wars found, ABC will be airing Secrets of The Force Awakens next Friday and that special will be followed by “A 3 minute trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” For those who want a chance to check out this special followed by a trailer premiere, tune into ABC at 8pm. Currently, it’s unknown if this listing is referring to EST or PST, but regardless, a brand new trailer is approaching, and the Star Wars hype train is about to reach light speed.
What do you hope we see in this brand new look at Rogue One? Which new characters are you most excited to see more fleshed out in this new sneak peek? But most importantly, will we be seeing Darth Vader in live action form for the first time in over a decade? I’d say take that to the bank.
Following the foundation of the Galactic Empire, a wayward band of Rebel fighters come together to carry out a desperate mission: to steal the plans for the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the Emperor’s rule.
Directed by Gareth Edwards and starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, and Jonathan Aris, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story comes to a galaxy near you on December 16.
