Final poster and trailer for ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY!

Look, the headline above is a lie. Disney may call this the “final” trailer, but as we saw with their previous big efforts, there will probably be a couple of short TV spots dropped over the next few weeks until Rogue One: A Star Wars Story drops at the end of the year. But falsehoods aside, this is still a Star Wars movie – and the first Star Wars movie of its kind! – so I’m giving this all the fanfare I can, damn it!

Much like with The Force Awakens, Disney and Lucasfilm have done a brilliant job of showing us trailers stuffed with really cool scenes that have fanboys/fangirls geeking out at hyperspeeds, but not actually spoiling the film’s plot beats. This one is slightly different.

They not exactly throwing out big honking spoilers here, but now we can finally confirm where the Rogue One title comes from, as well as exactly how Mads Mikkelsen’s character Galyn Erso, father to Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso, fits into the picture.

Check it out below!

And along with that trailer we have this great new poster that was unveiled by director Gareth Edwards himself on yesterday’s episode of ‘The Star Wars Show’. I just love the subtle addition of Vader here.

          Because sexism is still a real issue in society.

          “Boys don’t cry”.

            Quite right. Boys don’t. Because they aren’t mature enough to understand that men who cry are the stronger ones.

            You won’t feel that strong when your nuts go bye-bye.

            Don’t stress dude, nothing wrong with that… feel the force surround you and penetrate you, and have a good cry 🙂
