So yeah, at the time of this writing I’m almost positive this news is already making its way around the globe. So while you might have already read an article or two on the first Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer, allow us to post and comment. With Disney now owning the Star Wars franchise, we’re hopefully going to start seeing more movies and stories coming from it. Last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens was an amazing return to the Star Wars universe and Disney looks to be delivering even more with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Check out the full trailer below.

The studio dropped a teaser trailer back in April and have totally blown my expectations out of the water with this full trailer. Fast forward to June and we were reading reports that Darth Vader was confirmed to appear in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. That news alone got the fans clamoring as Star Wars is one of those rare films in which both villains and heroes are equally loved. So with this trailer we’ve confirmed that Vader will indeed be in this film, best 2 seconds of that whole trailer.
Overall I think this looks like it’s going to be an amazing film. I love that we’re going to see new Star Wars characters on the big screen with less concentration on those characters from the past films everyone has loved. Of course there is the risk that some casual Star Wars fans may blow this film off due to unknown characters, I would say it’s their loss. Vader’s appearance should help pull some of those fans in though and hopefully people will accept the new characters and the film universe expands even further.
