Lucasfilm and Disney have released a television teaser for the upcoming Star Wars anthology film Rogue One Sqaudron.
After 2 years of buildup, 2 trailers, reshoots, and endless rumors, Star Wars fans are just over a month away from perhaps the most anticipated Star Wars film since the Return of the Jedi.
The film will depict the events shortly before Episode 4 “The New Hope”, in which a band of rebels stole the plans to the Death Star, and brought hope to a galaxy oppressed by the iron fisted rule of the Galactic empire.
The film has looked breathtaking during the initial trailers, the imagery flawless.
But how good will the movie be?
That is anyone guess, but director Garth Edwards did an amazing job with Godzilla, and the narrative itself will appeal to hard core star wars fans that have followed this epic tale for 38 years and counting.
We have posted the new trailer here!
May the Force be with you.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is an upcoming American epic space opera film directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Chris Weitz, Tony Gilroy, and Gary Whitta, from a story idea by visual effects supervisor John Knoll.
