The First Trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is Finally Here!
The trailer for the first Star Wars anthology movie is finally here, and it seems like a very different take on Star Wars and a great vehicle for star Felicity Jones:


More so than any other Star Wars film, this seems to be a character study (I suppose the prequels were as well, just not very focused or successful ones). Felicity Jones' antiheroic, maverick character Jyn Erso is front-and-center in this surprisingly substantive trailer, and it's revealed that, like Rey, she is seemingly an orphan, or at least has "been on her own" since she was a teenager. Rogue One is clearly going to be focused on the rise of the Rebellion and the types of people within it ("This is a rebellion, isn't it? I rebel.").

We also get lots of Star Wars goodness, with AT-ATs, new Stormtrooper designs, and Mon Mothma all making appearances, as well as a new villain (no Darth Vader sightings yet, but that's to be expected. We also get a look at the other rebels joining her on her mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, especially Forest Whitaker, who seems to have a particularly large role.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story comes out in theaters on December 16.
