Brand New Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer Sheds Light on Jyn’s Backstory

A new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars story debuted on Good Morning America today, after director Gareth Edwards told the world it was coming last night on The Star Wars Show. With the first Star Wars anthology movie’s December 16 release date drawing closer, this new trailer takes a deeper dive into Jyn Erso’s backstory and gives us a little character development beyond her now legendary “I rebel” moment.

There’s also some X-wing fighting, droid action, and a bit of Darth Vader in there to round things out (though not a whole lot of women aside from our protagonist, strangely if not unexpectedly). Edwards also debuted a new theatrical poster, which is more character focused than the one we got a few months ago. Check it out:

Dan is many things, including a game developer, animator, martial artist, and at least semi-professional pancake chef. He lives in North Carolina with Lisa Brown (his wife) and Liz Lemon (his dog), both of whom are the best, and he will never stop reminding The Last Jedi's detractors that Luke Skywalker's pivotal moment in Return of the Jedi was literally throwing his lightsaber away and refusing to fight.
