Disney sure know how to prep things up, even in just as short as 10 seconds. The Mouse House just released a (very) short teaser preview for the first official trailer for the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story set to make its debut on Good Morning America on Thursday (April 7).
The teaser sets the tone for Rogue One which shows the Empire’s horrid, destructive influence over the galaxy after the events of Episode 3: The Revenge of the Sith and before the Rebellion’s success in destroying the first Imperial Death Star in Episode 4: A New Hope. The teaser preview shows a new Black Stormtrooper outfit that was teased several months ago by Rogue One Actor and martial arts superstar Donnie Yen. The black-donned foot soldiers were rumored to be an elite special forces group called ‘Death Troopers’.
Other than the teaser showing off a new breed of Stormtroopers, we hope to see a healthy mix of classic Star Wars vehicles alongside never-before-seen contraptions on this first Star Wars cinematic spin-off. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story stars Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker and Diego Luna, and will debut in US theaters during the Christmas season on December 16, 2016.
