“This is our chance to make a real difference.”
The force is strong today as Disney has finally dropped the 2nd trailer for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” during the 2016 summer Rio Olympics.
Helmed by “Godzilla” director Gareth Edwards, the first live-action “Star Wars” spin-off sees “A Theory Of Everything” actress Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso and her team of Rebellion fighters tasked with stealing plans for the Death Star. According to Screen Rant, the movie is said to conclude roughly 10 minutes before the start of “A New Hope” (1977) and it is set 34 years before the events of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (2015).
In the 1st trailer, we got to meet and know what kind of person Erso is. But in this new trailer, we are introduced to some of her teammates: Cassian Andor (played by Diego Luna), Chirrut (played by Donnie Yen), Baze Malbus (played by Wen Jiang), and K-2SO (voiced by Alan Tudyk), a droid.
Good guys aside, the trailer also highlights actor Ben Mendelsohn’s role as the leader of the Imperial. Oh, guess what? The galaxy’s most-feared Sith Lord, Darth Vader appears at the end of the trailer too. No biggie. (OH MY GOD!!!!!!)

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, and Simon Emanuel; executive produced by John Knoll and Jason McGatlin; and co-produced by John Swartz and Kiri Hart.
