We’ve said it before so we’ll repeat it: If you aren’t someone who wants to know what the next Star Wars movie is about, walk away now. Lucasfilm has proven with Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens and this year with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that they figure fans won’t mind seeing a fair chunk of key scenes and plot developments via the movie trailers. Would the “Chewie, we’re home,” line uttered by Harrison Ford carried greater weight had it not been previewed ad nauseam in months of previews? Should we assume plenty of surprises have been left for the movie?
We can’t get enough of these glimpses of more Star Wars. The latest preview for Rogue One released this Thanksgiving weekend give up several humorous scenes from the film. Did the marketing folks think fans needed something lighthearted since the overall story of Rogue One is reportedly the darkest story yet, excepting possibly Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith? This final trailer also shows some beautiful action sequences we have not yet seen. This movie is going to be the biggest entertainment event of the year. Just look at the detail in this village set below–every single thing about it tells you this is in the Star Wars universe.
Since Thanksgiving we’ve also seen both new international and IMAX posters (all below after the break) plus Alamo Drafthouse glassware available at select screenings.
And the studio announced ticket sales will begin tomorrow! Check your local theater for listings.
But first, here is the final trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story:
When was the last time one movie had so many poster variants?
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is only 19 days away, except for UK audiences, who get to see the film released one day earlier, on December 15.
