With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story finally hitting theaters, the focus switches in earnest to the next true sequel in the core franchise, Star Wars: Episode VIII. It seemed fitting then to focus on the anticipated film for today's Fan Trailer Friday.
YouTube user Teaser PRO has created a new fan trailer just for fun called Star Wars: Fall of the Resistance/Episode 8, which pairs footage from a few choice Star Wars franchises to create a unique vision of what Episode VIII could be. The trailer features clips primarily from Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Old Republic, and gives fans a world where Rey seems to succumb a bit to the dark side, while Kylo Ren perhaps gives in to his light side roots. It also features the return of Vader himself by trailer's end and is pretty entertaining throughout.
To pass the time until Episode VIII you can check out Rogue One: A Star Wars Story starting today.
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. 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.
