The first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story landed late last night, and with it comes plenty of hype, intrigue and chatter about the film’s premise, its characters, and how it ties into A New Hope (apart from the obvious “steal the plans to the Death Star” bit).
It’s a fairly brief trailer, lacking in the nostalgic appeal of the first Episode VII trailer, although it has the nostalgic piano punch to remind us that, yes, this is a Star Wars film, and yes, it’s going to feature some of the series’ iconic sounds, locations and baddies.
So what did we learn from the trailer, and what can we look forward to seeing when the film hits theaters on December 16?
