UPDATE: New Rogue One Trailer was Actually a Celebration Reel
The Star Wars Rogue One Panel is currently streaming, and they’ve just shared a three minute “Behind the Scenes” Celebration Reel video with some great new footage. Check it out below! Also, check out the new Rogue One poster!
The New Rogue One Trailer is Set to Debut Soon
The Force is still very much strong with the Star Wars franchise, especially after The Force Awakens pulled down a little over two billion dollars worldwide. And though Star Wars Episode VIII isn’t set to arrive until next year, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is arriving this December to tide us over. And after a pretty great first trailer, we’ve been waiting for a new Rogue One trailer to arrive. Well, good news, as we may be getting that trailer very soon.
Thanks to the sharp eyes over at Making Star Wars, we know a three-minute trailer for the upcoming standalone story is going to be shown on Friday, July 15th, as part of a Star Wars related special on ABC. The special, called Secrets of the Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey, will air starting at 8 PM Eastern. However, there’s a good chance the new Rogue One trailer will be available online a little earlier in the day, because July 15th also kicks off the Star Wars Celebration Europe, being held in London. And at 4 PM GMT (or 11 AM Eastern), there’s a Rogue One panel, where most people expect the new trailer will debut.
New Rogue One Trailer Playing With Force Awakens Documentary
When it comes to the Force Awakens piece playing on TV, many believe it’s the same making-of documentary that played at South by Southwest earlier this year, and was later included on the Blu-ray version of The Force Awakens and also with digital downloads. Still, if you haven’t seen the making-of piece yet, or if you haven’t had a chance to see the new Rogue One trailer online, it’ll definitely be worth tuning in.
So, are you excited about the new trailer? What kinds of new things do you think we’ll see? Let us know in the comments below. Also, be sure to check back on the 15th, as we’ll be putting the trailer up just as soon as it’s available.
