The first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story launched this morning and the internet has not stopped talking about it. Why would they when it looks absolutely amazing. The familiar sights and sounds of the original trilogy are back. We got a chance to see what looks like the Rebel Base on Yavin IV, Mon Mothma's return as the leader of the Rebel Alliance, a group of AT-AT's opening fire on the main cast, and the barely completed Death Star and its immense size compared to Star Destroyers.
New things from the Imperials included a new type of Stormtrooper, which may even be a new take on the Dark Trooper from the Extended Universe, and the official debut of the White Imperial Uniform, made famous in the Extended Universe by General Tarkin.
The trailer also introduced the main character, Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones). The former rebel appears decked out in Imperial gear for some unknown reason. A reason we may not find out until the film’s December release.
The film looks stunning, and I cannot wait. Check out the teaser trailer below:
