The wait is over! The main trailer for the much awaited Star Wars spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film is set sometime before the original trilogy (Ep IV – VI), and will end where A New Hope began. Rogue One tells the story of the band of rebels who stole the original Death Star’s plans.
The trailer immediately pulls the nostalgia strings with Imperial March tune playing throughout the background. The trailer also gives more of the supporting characters played by Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen. We also get the first look of Riz Ahmed‘s character. Action keeps ramping up as the war between the rebels and the empire goes on. People are arrested, shot at… cities and bases destroyed. Lucasfilm is getting the up hype slowly but surely!
