Disney and Lucasfilm unveiled their final trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Thanksgiving evening during their Wonderful World of Disney holiday special.
The trailer runs one minute long and finally unveils what exactly the movie is about, a group of rebels attempting to infiltrate and acquire the plans for the Death Star, a weapon with the power to destroy an entire planet. It’s actually kind of crazy they haven’t really expressed in trailer format what the movie is about until now.
The trailer finally showcases Rogue One’s droid, K-2SO as we get multiple scenes showing off his personality and character. He’s ruthless, but also provides comic relief. It’s a unique take on a droid that we haven’t seen on film yet, but might just be inspired by Triple Zero from the Darth Vader comic book series.
The trailer has everything you want in a Star Wars movie with a seemingly insurmountable mission, an engaging cast of characters that definitely appear to have solid chemistry, plenty of heroic action scenes both on new wondrous planets as well as in the far reaches of space, and there is Darth Vader.
This trailer definitely has me excited to go out and see Rogue One now!
Tickets go on sale Monday at 12:01 Am EST. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16, 2016.
