Rogue One new image trailer

A new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story premiered last month at Star Wars Celebration Europe, but the only people who actually saw it were those who made the trek to London since the event's webstream cut out before broadcasting it to the world. But that was a different version than what debuted during the Olympics, and while both ended on a shot of Darth Vader, this new one chose to show a close-up of the back of his helmet versus his shadow, as seen at Celebration.

And based on that image of Vader, it appears he may be looking at the very thing those Rebels are after: the Death Star plans.

The first trailer for the movie directed by Godzilla's Gareth Edwards focused mainly on Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), but this new trailer branches out to give quick introductions to the rest of her team. It doesn't break down every aspect of their backstory (as well it shouldn't; those discoveries should be left to the movie), but it does offer a tantalizing tease of the misfits tasked with stealing the plans to the Death Star that will later prove to be very, very useful to the Rebel Alliance.

Check it out.

 

Lucasfilm’s Rogue One, which takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, tells the story of unlikely heroes who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star.

The cast includes Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, and Forest Whitaker. "Rogue One" is directed by Gareth Edwards, produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel, executive produced by John Knoll and Jason McGatlin, and coproduced by John Swartz and Kiri Hart.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16, 2016.
