BREAKING: New trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arriving this Thursday

August 7th, 2016 by Marc Comments



While we’re still a little sore that we didn’t get in to the main Celebration Hall at Star Wars Celebration Europe to see the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer (it was first day and we just couldn’t make it for 5am!!!), it looks like we’ll all be seeing new footage this coming week.

During the Rio Olympics earlier today a TV spot ran saying a new trailer was coming this Thursday (see the tweet below).

When it will air we’re not sure and if it will be the footage from Celebration is still up for debate although we’d have to imagine that that footage was for the event only, so it’s unlikely.

Either way, we’re hearing it will be online at pretty much the same time and some folks are speculating it may e attached to some copies of Pete’s Dragon which kicks off this Friday… either way, new Star Wars footage, baby!

We’ll keep you posted as and if we hear more…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
