A new trailer has been released for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. We’ve known since the project’s inception that the film would deal with a small band of desperate Rebels who steal the plans to the Death Star and race to get them into the hands of Princess Leia. This new trailer amps up the tyranny and oppressiveness of the Empire and the determination of the group out to stop them.
