The first TV spot for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" has arrived. As the film closes in on its December release date, more and more will be revealed about the anthology installment -- but this spot mostly relies on footage we previously saw in the first trailer. The spot has that clip's claxon as well as a few of its most memorable scenes and lines of dialogue, all cut down to a crisp 30-second runtime.
Set outside of the main sequel trilogy that began with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Rogue One” is set just before 1977’s “Star Wars” and details the Rebel plot to steal the Death Star plans from the Empire. Directed by Gareth Edwards (“Godzilla,” “Monsters”) from a script by Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz, “Rogue One” stars Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna and Riz Ahmed.
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” opens December 16.
