There’s only 4 months left until new Star Wars!!! I couldn’t get enough of last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens; I think they did an amazing job with the visuals effects, characters, just everything. When we got word about the latest, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, I was understandable elated and intrigued. First off, we have a female lead which makes this the one movie of 2016 to rule them all. Second, my beloved and most favorite villain of all time Darth Vader will be back.
Check out this new released trailer to catch a glimpse of the man in black.

Watching these trailers gives me chills! Even though we’re all dying to know what is going to happen with the fantastic crew from The Force Awakens, I love that we get to experience a new film on a slightly different, yet still completely, relevant story line. I’ll admit, I have always wanted to know just how the Rebels got their hands on the Death Star plans, and now we will all finally find out!
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives in theaters everywhere on December 16th!
