Rogue One Gets Its First TV Spot!

By  | 

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is right around the corner. If you’re like me and counting down the days, it’s exciting to see little bits of new footage here and there to pass the time. Disney and Lucasfilms released their first television spot last night! It doesn’t have much new footage, but we do get a brief glimpse at the X-Wings doing their thing.

Rogue One is the story of rebel leader Jyn Erso and her group of spies stealing the plans for the Death Star. It takes place shortly before Episode IV: A New Hope.

I’m most excited to see Forest Whitaker playing the role of Clone Wars character, Saw Gererra. Also with Star Wars: Rebels season three getting mighty close to the Rogue One timeline, I’m wondering if the show will get a shout out in the movie.

Starring Felicity Jones as rebel leader Jyn Erso, alongside Diego Luna, Alan Tudyk, Forest Whitaker, Donnie Yen, Wen Jiang, Riz Ahmed, and Ben Mendelsohn, and directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives in the UK on 15 December, and the US on 16 December.

Check out the trailer below!

Hope set out into the world to be a Pokemon Coordinator. When she realized that Pokemon were not real, she pursued her other passion: writing. Hope was raised in fandoms and saw how they can help save the world from her work with The Harry Potter Alliance. Now, she works to bring that love into writing one article at a time. She's also a diehard Atlanta Braves fan, so don't diss her team.
