Were you watching the Olympics coverage last night? I was!!! For two reasons. Number one, because USA rocks and I had to cheering on Maryland’s own Michael Phelps. But this post isn’t about how if Maryland was a country, we’d totally be dominating the Olympics right now… This post is about the number two reason I was watching the coverage: To see the brand new ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY trailer!!! Don’t worry, I you missed it, I have it below.
First, let me just clarify that ROGUE ONE a Star Wars spinoff film. It will take place before Episode IV: A NEW HOPE. In this film we meet a group of rebels and resistance fighters with the goal of stealing the plans for the Death Star. Sounds pretty awesome already, am I right?
So now I’ll go ahead and show you the trailer because let’s face it, that’s probably why you clicked into this post anyway!
The cast includes Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Mads Mikkelsen (who will also appear in DOCTOR STRANGE), Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, and Forest Whitaker. ROGUE ONE is directed by Gareth Edwards, produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, and Simon Emanuel, executive produced by John Knoll and Jason McGatlin, and co-produced by John Swartz and Kiri Hart.
ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY will hit theaters December 16th of this year!
