Star Wars: Rogue One International Trailer Features New Footage and Info on Mads Mikkelsen's Character
Mads Mikkelsen has probably caused Kathleen Kennedy and LucasFilm a number of headaches since he completed production on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The Danish actor has been a walking spoiler in recent months, dropping hints about his character and the impact he will have on the Rogue One story, all while LucasFilm look to keep key plot points a secret. Thanks to his loose-lipped ways, we now know that Mikkelsen plays Galen Erso, a brilliant scientist and the father of the movie's protagonist, Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones). Mikkelsen's various remarks have led to a number of theories about the character, but in a new International trailer, we finally get confirmation of what role Galen Erso will be playing in the movie as well as some brand new footage.

Spoilers for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story follow.



Many have theorized that Galen Erso was one of the scientists working on the Empire's Death Star project, and this new trailer all but confirms that theory with a new line of dialogue that we've not seen in previous clips and trailers.

 
Knowing that Galen Erso was the man that tipped off the Rebellion about the Death Star all of a sudden makes his character more interesting. Is Jyn Erso purely motivated by helping the Rebellion, or is she also looking to help her Father escape the clutches of the Empire?

The trailer also features a few new scenes of footage, which is an unexpected treat given that we've only just finished studying the one that footage that was released last week.
