Felicity Jones Incites New Hope For ‘Star Wars’ in Fresh ‘Rogue One’ Trailer
"Rebellions are built on hope," declares Felicity Jones' Jyn Erso in the latest TV promo for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. "This is your chance to make a real difference."
In a new trailer for the upcoming Star Wars spinoff, Jones' heroine Jyn Erso rallies the Rebel Alliance troops for an epic battle against the Galactic Empire, who is building a weapon of cosmic mass destruction. (That would be the Death Star, obviously.)
While Disney was reportedly unsatisfied with the early tone of the film, subsequently ordering a number of summer re-shoots, the latest trailer retains its somewhat darker, serious atmosphere (after all, this is technically a war movie) while Jones' character breathes a new sense of hope, cooperation and triumph into the film. Watch above.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in theaters December 16.
