This Rogue One TV Spot Gives Fans Plenty Of New Hope

With the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just over a month away, fans are about to experience the kinds of challenges they remember from the weeks leading up to the release of The Force Awakens: spoilers, too much new footage, and the general risk of prematurely learning too much. Even with those fears in mind, the new Rogue One TV spot is nothing to fear. In fact, some fans are raving about this new look at December’s most anticipated release.


Based on this TV spot, one YouTube commenter concluded that Rogue One “has the potential to be better than all of the 7 episodes,” while another went even further, declaring this a historic moment in advertising: “best tv spot every [sic] shown in tv!” But no matter how the actual film turns out, Hugh G suggests you make the most out of it, as this is “the last Star Wars movie we get to see before Trump becomes president and blows up the world.”

So what’s the movie about? You’ve already had plenty of clues, but here’s the official synopsis: “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.”

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives in theatres on December 16, 2016. Check out the new TV spot below.
