We’ve been waiting since August for another trailer for the upcoming film in the Star Wars universe when we got our first proper glimpse of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and only a short time ago the second official trailer was unveiled and its a good one. So sit back and sip that coffee or tea if its your preference and look away from Facebook for a couple of minutes to properly enjoy this on the screen of your computer. Remember that while this film follows “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in terms of release, its actually taking place in the time before that “A New Hope” film that I am sure quite a few of you have seen. This second trailer is even more substantial than the first was so enjoy.
Following the foundation of the Galactic Empire, a wayward band of Rebel fighters come together to carry out a desperate mission: to steal the plans for the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the Emperor’s rule. Edwards stated that the style of the film will be similar to that of a war film, stating, “It’s the reality of war. Good guys are bad. Bad guys are good. It’s complicated, layered; a very rich scenario in which to set a movie.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I really enjoyed the first trailer that we got and have to say that this one has sealed the deal for me. It looks like we are going to have some thrilling action and compelling storytelling in this one. We also get a quick couple of glances at Darth Vader who I am hoping makes more than a 45 second appearance in the film since he is such a big bad. Let’s hope the character has a more active role since we are at the beginning stages of the full on Galactic Empire and all their nasty doings with the new Death Star weapon. I also am liking Jyn more and more and think she is going to be a fantastic character to the mythology. What did you readers think of this trailer? You down? Let me know in the comments section.
