Star Wars: Rogue One gets a 15-second trailer teaser

A second trailer for Star Wars: Rogue One will be making its way online later this week, and as is still the custom for big blockbuster films a sneak peek at that new footage has emerged in the form of a 15-second teaser.

Check it out below...

In addition to a glimpse of a new U-Wing starfighter taking off the teaser also gives us a few fresh shots of Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso and her band of rebels, including Jiang Wen’s Baze Malbus, Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor, and Donnie Yen’s blind warrior Chirrut Imwe, who looks like he's just laid waste to a bunch of stormtroopers. Here's hoping we get to see a little more of that scene when the full trailer debuts tomorrow.

Directed by Gareth Edwards and starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen and Alan Tudyk, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is scheduled to open in UK and US cinemas on December 16, 2016.
