A new hero emerges in the first Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer
Will fans ever get sick of Star Wars? The answer is probably “no”, regardless of what happens in the Star Wars universe, but Disney is making sure fans stick around because they want to and not just because they feel obligated to. They’re doing that by making quality films, starting with last year’s THE FORCE AWAKENS and continuing this year with the first standalone film, ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY. The first trailer can be seen below and it looks fantastic, at least in terms of scope and style. The idea of going back and revisiting something that happened during one of the other films is a risky idea, but it looks like they’re going to pull it off.
Remember the Death Star plans that Princess Leia places inside of R2-D2 in A NEW HOPE? Well, this film tells the story of how the Rebellion stole those secrets. ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and Riz Ahmed. The Gareth Edwards directed film hits theaters on December 16th.
