If you’re feeling still somewhat down about a certain somebody elected to office, here’s some new Star Wars Rogue One dopeness to help distract you for four minutes and thirty-six seconds, which is the exact amount of time you’ll spend watching this new international trailer twice. It might also remind you that there are, in fact, rulers throughout the galaxy who might actually be worse than Donald Trump.
The premise of the trailer is awesome because it gives us some background on Jayne Erso’s character, specifically her father. It also shows her mother and a gift that she received before her father was taken from her.
Personally, what I’m loving the most about this story is the alleged lack of force-wielding people (minus Darth Vader) in Rogue One. I understand that the blind asian guy probably isn’t blocking blaster bolts with a staff because of luck, but I’m really looking forward to a darker galaxy in Rogue One. Hopefully they deliver on that.
Check out the trailer below.
