As we slowly march on towards the December release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Disney has dropped another massive trailer. Capitalizing on the same gritty feel of the previous footage we’ve seen, the new trailer highlights the scope of the film and drops new details about the movie’s story and protagonist Jyn Erso.
As it turns out, Jyn’s father, played by Mads Mikkelsen, might be the chief engineer behind the Death Star. Her connection to him is likely the reason Jyn gets pulled into a mission to steal the space station plans in the first place. Additionally, the trailer even hints at where the film will take its name from.
Aside from these revelations, along with a look at Darth Vader and the first lines from Alan Tudyk’s K-2SO, we also get a couple particularly gorgeous shots of the new locations we’ll be seeing in Rogue One.
Whether it is the gigantic collapsed Jedi statue above, or the Death Star rising on the horizon below, there is a lot to look forward to. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story releases Dec 18.
