Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

"This is our chance to make a real difference." Disney + LucasFilm have launched the third official trailer for the first Star Wars spin-off movie - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story directed by Gareth Edwards. This is potentially the last trailer we'll see before release in December. Following the first two trailers, this one contains even more VFX-packed footage and more time with the various characters, including the droid K-2SO. Starring Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, plus Mads Mikkelsen, Donnie Yen, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Jonathan Aris, Riz Ahmed & Alan Tudyk, Rogue One is about a group of rebels who set out on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. I'm glad they're still not giving away everything in the footage, but are giving us even more to get excited about. Only two months left to go!

Here's the third trailer for Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, direct from YouTube:

You can watch the first teaser trailer for Rogue One here, and the second trailer here to compare footage.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Poster

Another poster for Rogue One has arrived with the trailer + a talk with Edwards on The Star Wars Show:

Jyn Erso, a Rebellion soldier and criminal, will face her biggest challenge yet when Mon Mothma sets her out on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star with help from the Rebels and other non-allied forces.

"Rogue One takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope and will be a departure from the saga films but have elements that are familiar to the Star Wars universe," says Kathleen Kennedy. Rogue One tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. It's being directed by English filmmaker Gareth Edwards, of the movies Monsters and Godzilla previously. The screenplay is credited to Chris Weitz (About a Boy, The Golden Compass, Cinderella) based on a story by John Knoll and Gary Whitta. Disney will release Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in theaters everywhere starting December 16th, 2016 this year. For even more Star Wars updates, click here. You in?

I'm out of breath. This looks miles above the other Star Wars movies...I cannot wait.

Mostly I'm stoked for the score...the music featured so far has been beautiful.

Xerxexx on Oct 13, 2016


I am stoked, hopefully the pacing is not on par with Godzilla, which was horrible. Do we see Vader in the last 30 seconds of the movie? Were the Re-shoots saving a boring movie? I am still excited but let's wait and see.

Re-shots are nothing to worry about, reshoots are all a part of making a film.

I'm super excited. New SW fan here. 🙂

Looks good, that's a well-made trailer.

Am i the only one seeing the man in the white cape (don't know the name) looking like some weird CGI mix of a young Ian McKellen and Peter O'Toole?Got that since the teaser...Anyway,they should've go only with the first two,that one told a big chunck of the story.No more trailers for me.

Maxim Karagogov on Oct 13, 2016


Ben Mendelsohn does look very similar to them.

Xerxexx on Oct 13, 2016


CG cape!! (Maybe, I really don't have any idea)

DAVIDPD on Oct 13, 2016


Looks good. What's with Forest Whitaker's voice?

TheOct8pus on Oct 13, 2016


What do you mean? I love his voice. Been fucking repeating "Save the rebellion. Save the dream." all morning to myself in whispers.

Jorrell Mcdaniel on Oct 13, 2016


I think he putting on a Caribbean accent or something.

DAVIDPD on Oct 13, 2016


I'm in

DJROBL on Oct 13, 2016


Best trailer to date. I could feel the desperation from both the Empire and the Rebellion to accomplish their goals. Very compelling. Earnest.

Quanah on Oct 13, 2016


DIG DIG DIG. People will say things. Ignore them.

DAVIDPD on Oct 13, 2016


George Lucas should watch this.

tarek on Oct 13, 2016


I betcha he doesn't give two fucks.

Sascha Dikiciyan on Oct 13, 2016


Oh I wouldn't be so categorical. Star Wars was his baby, and the main reason he sold it to Disney was because of the negativity of the star wars fans towards him after the awful prequels. Even if you sold your baby, you'll always want to see how it is doing without you. It is probably hurting him to see how successful is star wars without him.

tarek on Oct 13, 2016


Can you explain again that SW is his baby? Sheesh dude thanks for the lecture. fact is no one knows. At least when asked it seems he doesn't really care anymore.

Sascha Dikiciyan on Oct 13, 2016


Well...He didn't make a damn movie other than Star Wars since 1977. And he was the One Man Orchestra in the prequels, and that says a lot regarding his ego and his involvement in star Wars. The fact also that he was so contemptuous towards the fans when they asked about the unaltered version of the OT is a serious indicator of his obsession with Star Wars. A normal guy ( Spielberg, to name his friend) would have released the unaltered version to appease everybody.

tarek on Oct 14, 2016


I only came here for the comments. I'm on blackout until I see this thing! I've seen the first two trailers (including the fan cut with "Sabotage" by the Beastie Boys) and it's enough to warrant I AM DEFINITELY DOWN FOR THIS. Here's hoping it delivers to my expectations and my desire to see a Dirty Dozen/Star Wars movie. CAN'T WAIT. Most anticipated movie of the year for me.

RAW_D on Oct 13, 2016


It will be a blast for sure.

tarek on Oct 13, 2016


You can't kill Darth Vader, you just can't ...

shiboleth on Oct 13, 2016


Esp. When this movie's story is happening right before ANH. They should def not include him. Makes no sense and most fans dont want to see him. *Sarcasm* (in case)

Sascha Dikiciyan on Oct 13, 2016


Goddamn I love Star Wars.

grimjob on Oct 13, 2016


Am I the only one who's tired of the Death Star and Darth Vader? I'm waiting for a Star Wars movie with no main characters from 4-6.

redtie on Oct 13, 2016


You're not alone. I got fed up of Vader and Death Star since ROTJ. Lucas entrapped us in a tiny place, where Star Wars is about an infinite universe.

tarek on Oct 14, 2016


This looks incredible. After a very disappointing summer blockbuster season I am hoping this one hits it out of the park.

TK on Oct 13, 2016


I don't tend to be too hyperbolic, but this looks really amazing. It gave me a "Seven Samurai" vibe when I was watching it, and the music and visuals are just well.., I don't want to be hyperbolic. But, WOW!
