Before the many Bothans died to bring the Rebellion information, before the Rebel forces took on AT-ATs on Hoth, before Luke Skywalker and Han Solo swept into Leia Organa”s life, there was still a war to fight. Jen Arso (Felicity Jones) was one of those fighters. Now, the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story shows us how she came to lead a rag-tag team of men in a quest for the Death Star plans.
In the trailer above, it appears the film really captures the grittiness and “lived-in” feeling of the post-Republic galaxy. HitFix will be digging into this trailer later today, so keep your eyes peeled! For now? All I”ll say is by the end of the trailer, I was willing to bet you a shiny nickel that Jones” character is Rey”s mom aka the new Mara Jade.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives in theaters this December.
