The second Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer will get fans excited with its dark tone and the appearance of Darth Vader.
There have been rumors that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was undergoing reshoots to lighten its tone. This was supposedly to bring it more in line the Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you've been worried that this was happening, you'll be reassured by the newest trailer. Its tone seems exactly in line with what was shown before.
Shown during the Olympics last night, the new trailer features plenty of shots of the scrappy rebels taking on the big bad Empire, and emphasizes that theme throughout. The Rebels are fighting a battle for survival, and the band of heroes shown in this trailer must acquire the plans for the Death Star in order for the Rebellion to have a chance at destroying it.
I still haven't seen Kyle Katarn, but my experience playing Star Wars: Dark Forces tells me that he has to be on that team somewhere.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters December 16.
