New Star Wars Rogue One Trailer Might Be 3 Minutes Long


As you've probably heard probably by now, on July 15, a brand new trailer for the first Star Wars stand-alone movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, will air some time during ABC's broadcast of "Secrets of the Force Awakens," an hour-long television special about the revival of the Star Wars brand.

But, how much Rogue One goodness will we get? The ever observant folks at Making Star Wars have come across ABC's official listing for the program, revealing that the trailer will be "3-minutes long." That would make a minute longer than the first official trailer, which made its debut in April.

The special is airing in concert with Star Wars Celebration, which takes place in London from July 15-17.


Rogue One tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is being directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla). The cast features Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), Diego Luna (Milk, Elysium), Donnie Yen (Ip Man, Blade II), Alan Tudyk (Serenity, Firefly), Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler), Forest Whitaker (Lee Daniels' The Butler, The Last King of Scotland), Jiang Wen (Let the Bullets Fly, Devils on the Doorstep), Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline, Mississippi Grind), and Mads Mikkelson (Casino Royale, Doctor Strange).


Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be in theaters on December 16, 2016.
