The sneak peek shows more action featuring cast members Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, and others. It also includes interviews with members of the crew and director Gareth Edwards, who tells the camera while shooting a scene, “The pressure is so high.” It remains to be seen if Rogue One will live up to the anticipation, but most Star Wars fans have given the new footage their stamp of approval.
One Twitter user expressed, “I have a really really good feeling about #RogueOne,” while another wrote, “Can’t wait for the film it looks awesome.” One impatient fan said, “OK, I’m ready for #RogueOne now, please,” while another noted, “This just made me 50x more excited for Rogue One… didn’t think that was possible.”
A lifelong fan of the franchise admitted, “I’m 44 years old, and Star Wars still has the power to teleport me back to the boy of 5 who watched A New Hope in total awe.” Meanwhile, one person predicted, “This is going to be better than [The Force Awakens]. I am so pumped,” while another similarly expressed, “I know this will be considered a bold statement but I have a feeling this will be the second best Star Wars movie after Empire.” One enthusiastic fan joked, “I had plans for tonight, but now I have to watch this video 144+ times. Thanks. And that’s a real thanks, I ain’t even mad.” And another Twitter user said, “Watching this just gives me goosebumps, I have no doubt this is going to be an amazing film!”
A new poster (see above) for the film was also released Friday, and fans are equally as impressed with the one-sheet. Celebrity super fan Josh Gad tweeted, “Leave it to Star Wars to brighten up our days in the darkest of times. This poster is all sorts of awesome.” Another person called the poster “the most beautiful thing I’ve ever gazed my eyes upon,” while one fan stated, “The new #RogueOne movie poster. I can’t breathe. Send help.” These were just a handful of the hundreds of positive reactions to the new look at the upcoming film. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16.
