WATCH: ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ trailer

/ 11:47 AM August 10, 2016

The trailer may only be a 15-second teaser, but the newest Star Wars episode, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” is indeed an appetizing treat for ever-loyal Star Wars fans. Disney CEO Bob Iger told the press in February that this would be the first film of the Star Wars stories, according to British news site Independent.

The spin-off, produced by Lucasfilm, will take place in the same time period of Star Wars episodes “Revenge of the Sith” and “A New Hope.”


The short teaser displays the brand-new U-Wing starfighter launching on the Rebel temple base on Yavin 4, a place almost wiped out by the Death Star long time ago.


Present were the rebel leaders including Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso, Jiang Wen’s Baze Malbus, Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor, and Ben Mendelsohn, who plays the antagonist Director Orson Krennic.  Forest Whitaker will play the role of Saw Gererra, and Mads Mikkelsen of Galen Erso.

Also, Donnie Yen’s blind warrior-monk Chirrut Imwe is seen battling the Stormtroopers. Darth Vader makes a historic comeback in the series.

The full trailer of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” will be released on Friday, and the thrilling movie will hit big theaters in December. Two other upcoming series, a film about Rebel Alliance leader Han Solo, and another unnamed franchise will screen in 2018 and 2020.  Gianna Francesca Catolico
