ROGUE ONE: A Star Wars Story - Trailer 2

"Watch the official second trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, in which Jyn Erso leads a group of unlikely heroes to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives in theaters December 16, 2016."

With the hype and anticipation of The Force Awakens done and dusted, the next celluloid space opera flings fans and folks back to a parallel prequel to A New Hope, reeling in the afterburners-glow of George Lucas’ trilogy of prequels, to before the Death Star rumbled it’s death ray, laying waste to Alderaan!

And while I’d enjoyed Gareth Edwards’ GODZILLA, I was looking forward to his take on ROGUE ONE, not expecting any less of seeing Godzilla giant At-Ats, least the budget does not allow …

The earlier trailers have been, well, “entertaining” to say the least, providing a decent amount of hype to come for this 8th film in the Star Wars-lore.

Then THIS trailer dropped, and as I watched in earnest, with eyes brimming with tears of anticipation (or maybe t’was the anaesthetic wearing off and the gap where my tooth used to be a scant two hours ago …).

Jane’s dad is revealed to be vital in the construction of the Death Star. The call-sign is called. The rebel girl is rousing the rebels, and a semblance of a story forms, and I cannot wait til December comes, for when ROGUE ONE premiers December 16th in the USA, and Dec 15th in Singapore.
