The trailer focuses on Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso and her father Galen Erso, played by Mads Mikkelsen. Ben Mendelsohn appears as main villain Orson Krennic, who tells Darth Vader about the “immeasurable” power of the Death Star.

“We have hope,” Jones’ character declares to her rebel crewmates. “Rebellions are built on hope.”

It’s directed by Gareth Edwards from a script by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy. “Rogue One” also stars Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen, and Forest Whitaker as the members of Erso’s crew.

An untitled spinoff  film about Han Solo, starring Alden Ehrenreich, is set to arrive in 2018.

    Meh. Looks like a tv kids show. No wonder there were extensive reshoots. Stinker–yet not as bad as john carter (nor will be as big a critical or financial flop as carter).

    No terrible looking rubber masks. They must have learnt their lesson from episode 7. Worst Star Wars aliens ever in that movie.

  5. TV WATCH MAKET says:

    Man, must we watch these little children. It’s too culled from the headlines of the day with the whole ‘Rebel’ and ‘Empire’ thing. It’s like watching CNN. I wonder how many of them will vote for Trump.
