The second trailer for Lucasfilm’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has finally been released two months before it hits the cinemas.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal the plans for the Death Star, the planet-destroying super-weapon being developed by the evil Empire. The film takes place between the movies Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope.
Felicity Jones (Inferno, The Theory of Everything) leads the cast as Jyn Erso. Cast alongside the British actress is Mads Mikklesen (Casino Royale, Hannibal), who plays her father, Galen Erso.
The emotionally charged trailer gives fans a look into Jyn Erso's childhood, the hunt for the creators of the Death Star, and the journey the rebels must undergo to get to it. Making another appearance is the most iconic Star Wars villain of all time: Darth Vader.
Directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set for release on December 16, 2016.
