Felicity Jones stars as Jyn Erso.
The second trailer for the much-anticipated Star Wars movie is here FTW. (Missed the first trailer? We’ve got you covered.) For new fans, it’s important to note that this story does not follow Episode VII: The Force Awakens, but is part of a new anthology altogether.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first of a new series that will stand alone from the classic episodes, but will of course, be part of the greater Star Wars story. The trailer gives us a look into Jyn Erso’s childhood, when she sees her father being abducted by Imperial forces to help build their ultimate weapon, the Death Star. The timeline then jumps forward to Jyn as a young woman rebelling against the empire, who also happens to be trapped in a jail cell. Check it out:
So Jyn looks like a badass leader, and her eclectic rebel posse doesn’t seem too bad either. The group is full of new characters, but we do see a little of Darth Vader at the end of the trailer. Maybe Rogue One will delve into Vader’s life pre Death Star but post Anakin, hmmmm?
In addition to the sweet new trailer, we also got a new movie poster to study. See Vader lurkin’ in the Death Star? Details, details!
