Rogue One Trailer- despair and hope

The Star Wars saga is set to continue in an entirely new fashion this winter with Rogue One, which tells the story of the path that led to the events of A New Hope.

Specifically that means an entirely new team of rebels and mercenaries who come together to steal the plans for the original Death Star. That's quite a set up, and it looks like things are going to get stressful indeed.

Here's the final trailer for the film, which shows just what's at stake during this mission.

It's an excellent trailer, showing the mantra of the original Star Wars trilogy- a few against the many, the might of the Empire being faced by a few souls with passion and hope in the face of despair.

There's a great cast carrying those ideas through, but it's hard to know how invested we really can get. To some extent we know how this particular story is going to pan out, and that's always the danger of making a new story so carefully tied to something that already exists. It can become a paint by numbers.

In the future, we're hoping that these Star Wars stories manage to branch off to their on distinct storylines but for the moment the connection to the original trilogy makes sense, and it looks like a thrilling chapter.

Rogue One A Star Wars Story is out in Irish cinemas on the 16th of December, 2016.
