WATCH: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story super-edit is a thing of indescribable beauty… and new images have arrived from Topps

October 17th, 2016 by Marc Comments


We’re just a couple of months out from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – mad, right? Where did 2016 go!? – and now someone has masterfully edited together all the footage we’ve had so far into one super trailer…

And, while we’ve all loved the trailers so far, we’ve not felt a lot of emotional attachment. But that all changed with this.


From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

It stars Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), K-S2O (Alan Tudyk), Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn), Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker), Chirrut Îmwe (Donnie Yen), Baze Malbus (Wen Jiang), and Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed)

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives December 16.

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….
