Felicity Jones stars as Jyn Erso in anthology movie
A new trailer has been released for upcoming Star Wars spin-off film Rogue One.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story stars Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, as well as Riz Ahmed, Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker and Diego Luna.
It was recently revealed that the film will end 10 minutes before the original 1977 movie Star Wars: A New Hope begins.
This new trailer offers more of a look into the backstory of Jyn Erso, plus an introduction to Mikkelsen’s character of Galen Erso. We also get a bigger glimpse of Darth Vader’s role in the film.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first in Disney’s “Anthology Series” of spin-off films that will continue with the currently untitled Han Solo prequel movie due in 2018. It was announced in July that rising star Alden Ehrenreich has been cast as a younger version of the character made famous by Harrison Ford. A third Anthology Series film will follow in 2020, Disney confirmed earlier this week.
In May, it was reported that Disney had ordered weeks of costly reshoots on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “the goal of the reshoots will be to lighten the mood” as right now Rogue One has the “feel of a war movie”.
