There’s roughly five weeks to go until the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and Disney and Lucasfilm have today released a brand new TV spot for the highly anticipated movie. We only get a few snippets of never before seen footage here, but it’s more than enough to have you counting down the days until the film reaches the big screen.
Similar to Star Wars: The Force Awakens last year, it seems the studio is being very careful when it comes to exactly how much they reveal. That’s no bad thing of course, especially as the element of surprise is what made J.J. Abrams’ film so enjoyable last year, but it’s certainly left us with a lot of questions.
Thankfully, we can expect the marketing campaign for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to pick up in a big way over the next few weeks. After all, it’s important that Disney makes it clear to audiences what exactly this Anthology movie is, especially as there seems to be some confusion about how it relates to the new trilogy.
Throw in some pretty concerning reports about what’s been going on behind the scenes of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and there’s obviously a lot riding on this one to be a huge success. Whether or not it will be remains to be seen, but if there’s one thing we do know, it’s that December can’t get here soon enough.
