Star Wars Rogue One Trailer

As I write this, the Star Wars Rogue One Trailer (Actually named Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) has surpassed 15 million views on Youtube. This is Obviously a Highly Anticipated Movie. But is this trailer so good that its worthy of 15 mill views? Oh Yes!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Star Wars Rogue One is an all new story and a “standalone” film set in the Star Wars Universe in a place in time just before Episode IV – A New Hope. It seems that they are trying to fill the void between episode 3 and 4 which is roughly about 20 years. It also seems to be a death star origin story.


In the trailer, there are talks about a “Major Weapons test” that set to happen in a Death Star, The Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. It is now up to a group of Rebel Spies who plan a mission to Steal the plans to this Death Star in the hopes of seizing its completion.

Whats in it?

This also seems to be a deeper look at the danger and hardship experienced by the rebel troops. Only one notable Droid, K-2SO (Kay-Tuesso) voiced by Alan Tudyk. More Imperial Battleships were introduced in a highly stylised way. The actual Death Star was also Magnificently introduced.

Other Characters seen:-

  • Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso
  • Diego Luna as Cassian Andor
  • Ben Mendelsohn as Director Orson Krennic:
  • Donnie Yen as Chirrut Imwe
  • Alan Tudyk as K-2SO
  • Riz Ahmed as Bodhi Rook
  • Jiang Wen as Baze Malbus
  • Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera

Rogue One

The Score is another great highlight of this trailer(Music by Alexandre Desplat). It starts off with a less epic, slow version of “Imperial Theme” and journeys trough into a piece similar to that of a Hans Zimmer Inception score. The score comes back to the end of the familiar Imperial Theme and is mixed flawlessly against the beautiful visuals which somehow feel very practical for a CGI-heavy movie.

Oh and let’s not forget, the Reveal of Darth Vader! I went crazy seeing him back on the screen (even if it was just for a millisecond!). We will also see the return of James Earl Jones as the voice of Vader for this Film.

This is Truly one of the Best trailers out at the moment and a perfect follow up to the first Rogue One trailer. There isnt much given away in the plot, even with the reveal of all these new characters. Star Wars Rogue One is Directed by Gareth Edwards and is expected to be released sometime this December (2016). I love what Disney has done with the current Star Wars franchise and I can’t wait to see this movie.
