The brand new trailer for Walt Disney and Lucasfilm’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has been released online.
This new action-packed trailer spotlights Felicity Jones as rebel fighter Jyn Erso alongside Donnie Yen, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna and more. Many of the film’s characters are yet to be revealed, giving us something to look forward to as the marketing campaign springs into life.
In the meantime, the first load of footage certainly gives us a Saving Private Ryan vibe, perhaps with a little of the Star Wars Battlefront game mixed in, featuring huge explosions and troopers flying all over the place. The trailer really makes us believe that this could be the first real Star Wars-War movie; where we get a chance to see what a real large scale war looks like in the galaxy.
Rogue One presents Lucasfilm with the opportunity to really bring depth the World, introducing some new characters, places, battles and events. Of course, fans of the original trilogy will have at least a rough knowledge of what was happening up to the events of A New Hope (1977), but Rogue One will partly be used to expand on what we know, which is an exciting premise.
