Latest Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer Brings Hope to the Rebellion

The latest trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is here and brings tons of new details, including looks into the story of the Ersos, mainly Jyn and her father Galen, while trying to show there could be hope in such a dark time for the Rebellion. It also showcases how the film, as previously reported, was shot over the shoulder by director Gareth Edwards to make it feel like viewers were right down in the trenches with the rebels. This perspective also has the effect of making the Empire feel much larger and even more insurmountable than ever before (plus that shot of Vader busting through mist has me shaking in my boots every time I see it, especially after reading the excellent Darth Vader comic series). It’s hard to have hope looking at the daunting power of the Empire, but damn it Jyn is going to try to make us have a little of it just to see this through. I know I’ll give hope, and Rogue One, a try come December 16 later this year. Check below the cut for the new poster!

As revealed by a jam packed Star Wars Show, including Edwards making an appearance, the latest poster for the film has arrived. There’s a lot I like about it, specifically how the main cast is on there, Jyn is the focus, and that neat effect of Vader appearing as a phantom-like figure over all of them.
