That cameo we've all been waiting for is finally here. We've seen a tiny glimpse of Darth Vader's reflection in Rogue One (and heard his heavy breathing, naturally), but this amazing new trailer is the first time we've seen him in all his glory:



The trailer does show off our favorite villain, but more importantly, it's the first trailer that really makes this look like a Star Wars movie. Not only do Easter eggs abound, but the tone has a much more optimistic, "good versus evil" feel, especially when Jyn starts rallying the troops by telling them that "rebellions are built on hope." Everyone's been freaking out about those reshoots, but if they made the film feel more distinctly like a Star Wars movie (which was rumored to be the goal), then so far, so good.

The trailer also had several reveals about the film; it confirmed that "Rogue One" isn't just vaguely metaphorical, like Gareth Edwards said, but seems to be Jyn's call sign. It also confirmed that Galen Erso worked on the Death Star superlaser, and teased just how small and desperate the Rebellion is. Let's hope this is as epic an underdog story as it looks.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16.
