Darth Vader Returns In The New Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer

It's all a bit moody, isn't it?​

Remember that last Star Wars film? The joy of BB-8 and seeing the old gang again? Well this is NOT that. The new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is delivering a far more gritty installment to the universe. Here the world is "coming undone," "imperial flags reign" and, oh yeah, there's that familiar, ominous music which can only mean one thing: Vader's back.

Since this spin-off takes place during the dark days before Star Wars: A New Hope, the movie where Luke used a starship to destroy his dad's favorite moon-sized weapon, there's exactly no chance that this ragtag team of rebels is going to stop the Death Star in its tracks. Even the one joke in the trailer, a droid offering not to kill the lead character, isn't exactly light hearted. Still this downer of a movie has killer visuals. As it probably should, considering all those reshoots Disney ordered.
