If anything we know that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is going to have scale. Look at the Death Star looming over the planetary surface of Jedha (followed quickly by a brilliant shot of the space station blocking out the sun). That Star Destroyer that hangs in the atmosphere? Yeah, that’s wonderful. I actually had a sense of awe watching it rest in the sky.
After the Rogue One teaser gave us a taste of what a Star Wars stand-alone film could look like this second trailer goes more into the story in which a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star. It also gives us a glimpse of those heroes in brief individual scenes in case you needed another reason to be convinced that Donnie Yen is a badass. There’s also a rocket launcher and maybe some heavy mechanical breathing.
There’s a 97.6 % chance that I’m somehow more excited to see this movie.
