New Star Wars Rogue One Trailer Coming This Week

Video to air during Summer Olympics broadcast on August 11.


A new trailer for this year's Star Wars movie, Rogue One, is coming very soon.

Lucasfilm announced today that the video will air this coming Thursday, August 11, as part of the 2016 Summer Olympics. It's not immediately clear when specifically the trailer will air, but sometime during prime-time seems like a safe bet; the Summer Olympics are broadcast on NBC.

During Star Wars Celebration in July, Lucasfilm released a behind-the-scenes clip from Rogue One. Lucasfilm also showed panel attendees some new footage that featured Darth Vader. It's possible this is the video that will be released on Thursday, but this is not confirmed.

Rogue One hits theaters on December 16, 2016. It is directed by Godzilla's Gareth Edwards, and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, Forest Whitaker, and Mads Mikkelsen.
