‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Debuts First Footage, Trailer Arrives Tomorrow
December still seems pretty far away, but in just eight months fans will be swarming theaters to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the franchise’s anthology film. Aside from an official cast photo and a few Instagram prop pics, we haven’t had much to go on as production has remained fairly secretive — perhaps even more so than The Force Awakens. But if you — like us — have been wondering when the first trailer for Rogue One will arrive, we officially have an answer. And it’s tomorrow morning.
That’s super short notice, but if you don’t have plans to be up early tomorrow (for like, a job, or whatever), then set your alarms because the first teaser trailer for Rogue One will debut on Good Morning America. The official Star Wars account made the announcement via the above tweet, which includes a very short teaser video. That video offers a shot of a Shadow Trooper, one of the new Storm Troopers that’s long been rumored for the film thanks to photos of various helmets and props that have popped up online over the last several months.
And man, that Shadow Trooper looks like some serious business. Sleek, pitch-black and quite formidable in design — maybe even more formidable than Kylo Ren, but we’ll find out soon enough.
Here’s the (brief) official synopsis for Rogue One:
A band of resistance fighters unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans.
Directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla), Rogue One stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Mads Mikkelsen, Riz Ahmed, Forest Whitaker, Alan Tudyk and Donnie Yen, and hits theaters on December 16.
