Alright all my Rebel fans… The day is finally here were we get a look at ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY! Earlier today Good Morning America premiered the official teaser trailer for the new film and WOW! ROGUE ONE is the first Star Wars spinoff film AND the first in the cinematic universe to actually NOT focus on a member of the Skywalker family. Taking place before Episode IV: A NEW HOPE, in ROGUE ONE we meet a group of rebels and resistance fighters with the goal of stealing the plans for the Death Star.
In the trailer we meet Jyn Erso and see how Mon Mothma recruits her into the mission. For those who may not remember, Mon Mothma made an appearance in RETURN OF THE JEDI.
We then start to see STAR WARS icons such as storm troopers and AT-ATs. This teaser definitely gives the film that STAR WARS familiarity!
Though how about I just stop blabbing about the teaser and let you take a look for yourself! Here you go…
