Sounds like there’s a few Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailers ready to go…

February 25th, 2016 by Matt Gault Comments


Star Wars fans have slowly been getting irritated about the lack of a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer. The film is released this December and, yes, we know that’s ten months away but in the modern cinematic marketing climate, the norm is usually to release a short teaser in some form about a year before, especially for a Star Wars film.

In fact, at this stage of the game we already had two Star Wars: The Force Awakens teasers and it ramped up anticipation for the film hugely, write Squareeyed. However, Rogue One remains an unknown entity to many outside the Star Wars fandom and we could really use a trailer very soon.

Well, it looks as though we might get our wish as reports are claiming the bosses of Disney/Lucasfilm have seen the first trailer and are currently deciding which version to show. There’s apparently 2-3 different versions of the same trailer and they’re deciding on which tone they should proceed with.

Jordan Maison is the Editor in Chief of Cinelinx and is regularly spot on with his Star Wars information so, in the interest of believing him, we could see a trailer very soon. Many had speculated that it wouldn’t surface until Captain America: Civil War, which is Disney’s next huge film.

While there is likely to be a Rogue One trailer attached to that Marvel spectacular, don’t be surprised if it appears online well in advance. If Disney green-light the trailer, it could come in the next couple of weeks, which would be a real treat.
