'Rebellions Are Built on Hope' - First TV Spot for 'Rogue One' Debuts
"This is your chance to make a real difference." Lucasfilm + Disney have revealed the first 30-second TV spot for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, directed by Gareth Edwards, the upcoming Star Wars solo spin-off movie arriving in theaters in December. There's just about one month left to go until this opens and it looks totally spectacular. I'm very excited to see it, I still have high hopes, and I especially can't wait to meet this team of heroes - every one of them looks like they bring something unique and inspiring to the team. I'm still partial to Donnie Yen as Chirrut Îmwe (and Jyn Erso), but they all seem awesome. Starring Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, as well as Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Jonathan Aris, Riz Ahmed & Alan Tudyk as K-2SO. Join the rebellion this December. Enjoy.
Here's the first 30-second TV Spot for Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, from YouTube:
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 more Star Wars news, go here. Are you ready?

Déjà vu all over again.

It's funny that the tagine for the story in the film, could also be the opportunity for Disney with these breakout films. That while they continue to churn out the popcorn, light fluff of the main chapters, these films could be very different if they can just exhibit a little courage.

Disney showed some pretty big balls with Doctor Strange.

I hear you but different franchise, different universe. I just want this to be the darker war film that it hinted it could be.

True, but you said "Disney" which oversees the development of both. Different universe, same umbrella. I agree with you and I hope it is gritty and dark. We shall see on December 16th 🙂

I need more dirt, more sweat and blood, more treason, more human adventures. Looks promising so far.

It totally lost the magic of the first trailer... Very in doubt to watch this in the cinema...
