Trust in the Force. Those are the first words spoken in a new trailer for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” It’s as much an important clue to the story, as it is a request to the many Star Wars fans to trust Lucasfilm in their first film outside the Star Wars saga series of trilogies.
We’ve seen much of this trailer footage before, some of it in international trailers. But there is a bit more humor from Alan Tudyk’s K-S20, whose sardonic humor promises to add some lightness to what otherwise sounds like a suicide mission for most of those who set out to steal the plans to the Death Star.
Do you ‘Trust’ Lucasfilm to tell the new Star Wars Story that is Rogue One?
Tickets for Rogue One go on sale on Monday. Have your fingers ready at the following link if you want to see one of the first showings at 12:01AM on December 16th.
