The (second) wait is over! Yes, you might have had to watch a lot more Olympic coverage than you expected to, or maybe you had to click refresh way too many times before it finally came through on YouTube for you (as was the case with me).
But that’s all in the past. What matters is that Lucasfilm delivered a new trailer with lots of new footage and dialogue for Rogue One, and they did a bang-up job with it. And yes, we got Darth Vader, too, in a way. It’s from behind, but it’s not a shadow on the floor like it was in the super-secret footage from Star Wars Celebration Europe. And it’s in a similar location – apparently, on the Death Star.
We’ve got the trailer embedded here if you want to see it (again!), and during our special bonus-length episode of the podcast, I’m breaking down everything you’ll see and hear shot by shot. What’s new, what’s not, what are we learning, and what can we now guess at together? It’s all here, and please do share your thoughts in the comments.
