Rogue One Gets a New Trailer as Tickets Finally Go on Sale
First things first: Rogue One tickets are now on sale. If you didn't stay up until midnight last night, waiting on tenterhooks for them to finally be available, buy them now. If you've already done that, then you have time to watch this new teaser, which may spoil the appearance of another classic Star Wars villain:

Possible spoilers ahead!



The teaser goes very heavy on the Darth Vader heavy breathing, of course, but it also features a classic villain who hasn't been confirmed yet: Grand Moff Tarkin. We can't be sure, since we only see him from the back, but that certainly looks like him staring out at the Death Star.

This isn't a huge surprise, as his appearance has been rumored for quite a while now, but it does present some logistical quandaries. Peter Cushing, who originated the role, died many years ago, so either the role was recast (very well, we might add) or this is another example of Star Wars using groundbreaking CGI technology. The latter would be very exciting, but it would also probably mean that the role will be a tiny cameo, so we would be happy with either.

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