TRAILER: “SW Rogue One” Trailer Two Released

The Death Star


The first official trailer for ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY was a pleasant surprise. The newly released follow-up is an epic wow! Make no mistake about it: this promo is a loving valentine to longtime fans of the original trilogy.

The mood here is decidedly darker, with a scope and grandeur that harkens back to our favorite memories of the scariest elements of raw Imperial power. My heart might be with the Rebel Alliance, but the Galactic Empire always had the coolest hardware. There are ground-level views of marauding AT-ATs (dazzling), a shot of the Death Star eclipsing a sun (powerful), the best TIE fighter pop-up to date (very cool) and a tantalizing, cruelly brief coda featuring the Sith Lord we love to hate (and hate to love): Darth Vader.
