A new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has dropped and it looks great!
The film stars Felicity Jones as our rogue, Jyn Erso, and takes place shortly before events in Star Wars: A New Hope, as Jyn and a band of rebel fighters are given the task to steal plans for the Empire’s new weapon, the Death Star.
The scene where Jyn Erso stares down a Tie-Fighter is breathtaking. I’m especially excited to learn abouit the blind warrior, Chirrut Imwe, played by Donnie Yen. The film, which is the first of many in expanding the Star Wars universe, also stars Diego Luna, Mads Mikkelsen and Forest Whitaker and is set to release December 16, 2016.
This can’t come soon enough!
