With less than two weeks to go, Rogue One will finally be released in theaters. The closer we get to December 16, the more marketing material we will be receiving. Disney has done a fantastic job giving us just enough shots to keep us excited for the anticipation of what appears to be another incredible #StarWars movie.
Another TV spot has just hit the web and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Though only thirty seconds in length, it gives us even more never-before-seen footage of Rogue One:
Let’s break it down and take a closer look at some of these amazing visuals.
X-Wings Take Flight And Prepare For Battle
This brief clip shows us a great view of the X-Wings taking flight into the sunset off of Yavin IV. It’s quite possible that this shot is shortly before the final battle on the planet Scarif.#RogueOne hasn’t shied away from giving us similar shots between this film and A New Hope. Just take a look at this scene from A New Hope:
This took place right before the Death Star Trench Run so it should come as no surprise that the one seen in Rogue One will likely take place before a major battle.
The AT-ACTs Get In On The Action
Though not as heavily armored as their AT-AT cousin, the AT-ACTs pack quite a punch and are a force to be reckoned with. I absolutely love his scene as it truly gives that war film feel that Gareth Edwards has promised his fans.
Baze Malbus, Chirrut Imwe, And Jyn Erso’s Final Moment Together?
Though we don’t know how many Rebels will make it out of the film alive, I think it’s safe to say that most if not all of the main and supporting characters will have a tragic but heroic end to their story. If the above scene is any indication, this is probably the last time these characters will be able to have a regular chat before setting themselves on the battlefield.
X-Wings Ascend To The Heavens
Words cannot describe how impressed I am with the visuals for this film. Here is yet another gorgeous shot of X-Wings headed to who knows where. With a lot of the destruction lying in ruins shown beneath them, it’s safe to say that this takes place toward the conclusion of the epic battle on Scarif. This is a great final shot to end this new #TV pot and proves that there will be plenty of ground and air combat to please Star Wars fans.
