Following yesterday’s international trailer for Rogue One, two more international trailers have dropped for the film. For those unfamiliar with Rogue One, the story takes place before the events of A New Hope and centers on a group of rebels who are sent to retrieve the plans for the Death Star. They are led by Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) whose father (Mads Mikkelsen) was forced by the Empire to build the destructive space station.
These new trailers (or, technically, a trailer and a TV spot) are mostly comprised of footage we’ve seen before, but there are some new snippets of footage like a nice interaction between Chirrut Îmwe (Donnie Yen) and Baze Malbus (Wen Jiang). It looks like the film has come together quite nicely, and right now the only thing tampering my enthusiasm is word of the troubled production. Visually, the film looks distinctive and different while still retaining the feeling of Star Wars, and while we know that the rebels get the plans in the end, it appears that it will be an exciting ride to see how they got those plans.
Check out the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story international trailers below. The film opens December 16th and also stars Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, and Forest Whitaker.
