The summer Olympics in Rio this year have been quite exciting, but last night may’ve pulled a couple extra viewers in thanks to Disney dropping the new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story DURING the games!
Even though fans had to wait over two hours into the primetime Olympic coverage for the new trailer, we FINALLY got what we were all waiting for with new action packed footage from the sci-fi epic!
The upcoming flick takes place before the events of the first Star Wars movie from 1977, and revolves around a team that is asked to steal the Death Star’s design plans. Not only is the movie directed by Gareth Edwards, but it also stars Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker, and Ben Mendelsohn. Not to mention, James Earl Jones has returned to voice famed villain Darth Vader — who you get a quick glimpse of too!
Ch-ch-check out the incredible new trailer (below) and make sure you mark your calendars for December 16, 2016 when Rogue One hits theaters!
