Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - Drop Everything & Watch The First Trailer
Who run the galaxy far far away? Girls!
The engines might only just have cooled down on the Millenium Falcon after its triumphant return to cinemas, but the Star Wars bandwagon rolls on, with a first trailer swooping in for new spin-off saga, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Set many years prior to the events of A New Hope, the new film will focus on Jyn, Felicity Jones’s badass renegade (“This is a rebellion? I rebel…), who is charged by the Rebel Alliance with the small matter of pinching the plans for the Death Star. And judging from the rap-sheet that apparently qualifies her for the task, she definitely sounds more Solo than Skywalker…
Check out the new trailer, below…
Lots to take in there, but we particularly enjoyed the lingering look at Ben Mendelsohn’s white-clad baddie, the oh-so-sinister black-suited Death Troopers and Donnie Yen kicking several shades out of a crowd of Stormtroopers.
Oh, and then there’s Jyn herself of course, who looks like the punchiest Star Wars hero since, well, Rey. Who run the galaxy far far away? Girls!
Directed by Gareth Edwards and co-starring Forrest Whitaker, Mads Mikklesen and Diego Luna, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will blast into cinemas worldwide on December 16 2016.
