Vader has been teased in previous trailers, but his presence is definitely felt a bit more on this cut.

The film hits theaters in little over a month on December 16. "It's not the same path as Star Wars".

The second worldwide trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has arrived and it brings another look at an iconic villain and greater insight into the origin of the franchise's newest hero.

Big Red has another surprise in-store.

For people who still don't own the game, there's still a chance to buy the "Star Wars Battlefront: Ultimate Edition" which will contain all of the DLCs. So those of you visiting a Verizon store will be able to check out the new content before it becomes official online. And this new trailer gives us more detail about Jyn's backstory that definitely piques our interest.

Also, the "Edit" button within "My Faces" will let you rearrange the ones you're using or delete any that you don't want anymore. In keeping with recent updates to other Apple products, the company will replace some computer ports with a new USB-C outlet.


There's also a pretty incredible new shot of Darth Vader, and with the iconic villain's role in Rogue One being kept a closely guarded secret, anything we learn about him is obviously exciting! Story rotates around a group of revolutionaries who plan to invade the supreme armed force base to take plans for the first Death Star.

In the onset of the clip, Felicity Jones' Jyn receives a special necklace from her mom, as she says "Trust the Force".

Yes, the one released a few weeks ago was supposed to be the "final" trailer for the movie everyone and their brother is waiting with baited breath for. Fans have no doubt that this is a Kyber crystal.

Rogue One's trailer appears to contradict this narrative, showing the Death Star's main weapon pouring its signature green fire unto a planet as Jyn and her compatriots flee.

Yet more than the Force is needed when the Rebels formally discover the Death Star, especially when it carries out an early weapons test.
