The second trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was released this morning, and let’s just say HELLO BACKSTORY!
Warning: This trailer and the rest of the blog has SPOILERS!
So now we know why Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) is the main character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – her father, Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen) is critical to the building of the Death Star. Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly) thinks Jyn can help the Rebellion by finding him. In theory, finding Galen would lead to obtaining the Death Star plans that Princess Leia would give to R2-D2 at the beginning of Star Wars: A New Hope.
We all know where this story is going to end. It’s the journey to get there that is proving to be a remarkable story. This is a story about the fear of the Empire’s power against the hope of those who are willing to fight against it. It is a story about a daughter trying to find her father and possible redemption for them both. It is a story about a team willing to sacrifice everything they have in order to save the Rebellion.
We have hope. Rebellions are built on hope. – Jyn
From the looks of the two trailers so far, Gareth Edwards (Director) is putting everything he has into Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In fact, the trailers are looking better than the ones for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to me. What do you think? Are you excited for this movie? Tell me your opinions!
