This teasers-for-trailers fad is divisive, but there’s no denying that even brief snippets of new footage help to build hype whenever fans are anticipating a fresh glimpse of an upcoming blockbuster. In this case, we have a few seconds of action from Thursday’s second trailer for Godzilla director Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The promo begins with a new look at the Rebel’s starship, The U-Wing, taking off, before we see Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) seemingly hiding her identity under a hood. From there, we get a few very brief shots of several members of her ragtag crew: Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen), Alan Tudyk’s droid K-2SO and Donnie Yen’s mysterious blind warrior, Chirrut Imwe.
Finally, the teaser finishes with previously seen shots of Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), and that very cool looking AT-AT attack from the first trailer.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – phase two of Lucasfilm and Disney’s franchise revival – will blast into theaters on December 16th.
