Four brand new international trailers for Rogue One just dropped and if you thought your excitement levels for this Star Wars spinoff had reached maximum capacity, think again! These trailers are packed with new scenes, new characters and new dialogue that make December 16 seem like it can’t get here soon enough. To tide ourselves over for the film’s release, still a month away, we’ve gone through and pulled out six of our favorite things from the new trailers.
In the first TV spot we get a brief but awesome glimpse of our soon-to-be new favorite Star Wars character of all time: Bistan, a badass space monkey who joins the rebellion and ends up fighting alongside Jyn Erso‘s Rogue One crew. We also get a cool shot of enforcer droid K-S20 laying the smack down on some Stormtroopers. Until now we thought K-S would be following in C-3PO’s fastidious footsteps, so it’s nice to know that this droid was programmed to kick some ass too.
In the Japanese trailer, we see a young Jyn Erso receive a very special necklace from her mom, one with a kyber crystal in the middle. As we all know, kyber crystals are embedded in every lightsaber and are the source of their power. This begs the question, could Jyn and her mom actually be Force sensitive? Also in the Japanese trailer we get a nice new shot of Vader making a claw with his hand, like he just Force-choked someone out. Sure we’ve known Vader was gonna be in this one all along, but it’s still cool to see him in action.
Finally in the Korean trailer we get a shot of the Death Star firing on what appears to be Jeddah, which has us worried about the fate of the Jedi-worshipers home world. We also get one more glimpse of the mysterious Space-Ring base hovering above the beach planet of Scariff. Could be the entry way through a force field surrounding the planet? Possibly! Which would force our rebel heroes to “thread the needle” through it if they want to reach the planet’s surface. A new take on the classic Star wars trench run that we think sounds pretty cool!
But what do you think about these new trailers? Is there anything we missed? And how excited are you for Rogue One? Let us know in the comments!
