A new trailer for Disney’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has finally been released and it features the return of one of the greatest villains in sci-fi movie history: Darth Vader.
Directed by Gareth Edwards (the man behind the 2014 blockbuster Godzilla,) Rogue One is set between the events of prequel movie Revenge of The Sith and 1977’s Star Wars: A New Hope. It follows a band of Rebel Alliance soldiers attempting to steal the plans to build the Death Star, a world-destroying super weapon being developed by the evil empire. It’s a standalone movie, and it is not directly linked to the events of 2015’s The Force Awakens or its 2017 follow-up.
The new trailer has been teased for some time and was finally aired during the Olympics coverage on August 11. Fans were left buzzing after watching the action-packed clip, which includes excitement-building quotes like “There is a 97.6 percent chance of failure,” and even a special appearance from Darth himself.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set for release on December 16. Check out the new trailer above.
