Fans get their glimpse of Darth Vader in the new trailer for Star Wars stand-alone movie Rogue One during Olympics broadcast.
Lucasfilms and Disney sure know how to make their events big. During one of the breaks in the Olympics broadcast, the studios released the new teaser trailer for the new Star Wars stand-alone movie Rogue One. The trailer is action packed and gives us a little bit more idea about the characters that we will be seeing in the movie.

The trailer starts with a view of the world which Forest Whittaker’s character tells Felicity Jones character Jyn Erso that the world is coming undone. An imperial ship is seen from the ground hovering above a rocky mountain.
Jyn is led into an operation room where a man asks her if she could be trusted without her shackles. As we already know that Jyn is a rebel who had been involved in theft of some important files before.
Therefore she is handpicked to accompany a team on the mission Captain Cassian Andor who unshackles her. Jyn asks them to get it over with. She is then briefed by Mon Mothma now played by Genevieve O’Reilly, who tells her that a major weapon’s test is imminent.
We see an imperial ship and then a much completed Death Star. The mission is to find out how to destroy it. Andor asks Jyn if she is really doing it. He needs help. We see Jyn and Andor in piloting seats of a ship and Jyn tells him that its good.
He agrees as they nod at each other. Andor tells her that he had been recruiting for the rebellion for a long time as they go through an old market. Their ships are seen going through rocky mountains with looming thunder and an older man says that they destroyed their home while he shoots at some Storm troopers.
He then tells them that he can fight the Empire now. They then fly to another place where they meet Blind rebel Chirrut Imwe, played by Donnie Yen, clearly has the ability to use the Force, declaring "I fear nothing, all is as the Force wills it" and he takes down a number of Star Troopers with just his staff.
We also get to see K-2SO, the formidable droid who tells Jyn "The Captain says you are a friend. I will not kill you". He’s 7-foot-1, and follows orders pretty well. He later tells Andor that their chances of failing the mission are 97.6% so he is not an optimist.
We then hear Jyn saying that there isn’t much time as the Death Star eclipses the sun. We then see Director Orson Krennic played by Ben Mendelsohn, the man in charge of making sure Vader's new toy is ready in time.
Jyn says that everyday they grow stronger. We then get to see an action packed sequence of ships, planes, a lot of shooting, a lot of fighting. Jyn asks are they with her as she walks out on a platform with a gun in her hand. Andor tell her all the way. As we think that the trailer has ended, we see a glimpse of the back of the helmet of Darth Vader.
The fans are absolutely frantic. Rogue One is a story about events set before The New Hope. They will be the prequel to the events that started the whole Star Wars story. The December release date for the movie cannot come any closer.
