The final trailer for the anticipated ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ hit the web today to give us one last savory tease of the epic spinoff/prequel coming out on December 16th. The story involves a rag tag crew put together by the Rebels to steal information of the construction of the Death Star, putting the movie chronologically before the original ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’ film. This latest trailer shows more of a light-hearted look at the team of central players as well as the droid K-2SO, wild X-Wing dog fights in outer space, and some new fun action scenes with giant robots flinching from missile strikes. The trailer does hit the member-berry feels with a scene involving a mother telling her daughter to “trust the force” which throws back to the core battle of good and evil that has resonated through the entire series.
There has been overzealous fan freak-outs over the recent reveal that ‘Rogue One’ will not have the standard scrolling text prologue that fans have been familiar with at the start of all previous SW films, but Star Wars executive producer Kathleen Kennedy told Variety “We felt that’s so indicative of what those saga films are. Initially, we probably will begin the film in a way that is traditional, with just the title.” And that makes total sense, so fear not Jedis, this movie looks like it’s going to be pretty cool.
