Star Wars Celebration came and went – the event took place a few weeks ago in July – leaving many disappointed when no new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story appeared. Rumors circulated about a premiere on ABC, but that was just a re-airing of the behind the scenes sizzle reel that debuted at the event. When will we get to see more of Jyn Erso and the Rebels (which is an awesome band name, by the way)? Weeks have passed with no answer. But, just as everyone was about to give up, a new hope has arrived.
A new TV spot has aired during the Rio Olympics, announcing a premiere date for a brand new Rogue One trailer:
Most of this footage we’ve seen before, but we do get to hear a snippet of new dialogue featuring Jyn, asking, “Are you with me?” It’s as if she’s inviting us all to watch the new trailer, which premieres Thursday, August 11, sometime during the Olympics. We will be sure to have it posted here on The bH Scale as soon as it’s online.
This is the first in what will be a series of standalone films set in the Star Wars universe. This being the first, we have no idea what to expect, but the Star Wars universe is so rich and the footage so far has been so full of promise, that I personally cannot wait until this film is released on December 16.
