It’s not all fantastic feats of athleticism at the Olympics as a part of NBC’s primetime coverage has been devoted to release of the full trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This is basically a gold medal for all us nerds out there so let’s bask in the glory!
Forget all the talk of re-shoots and tonal shifts, forget talk of box office and budgets, forget franchise fatigue and take a second to realize how lucky we are to see the Star Wars universe expanded in new and exciting ways. Like the Episode VII trailers, plot details are still sparse but the music, visuals, and a glimpse of one notorious heavy-breather are more than enough to whet our appetites and instill excitement as we eagerly await December.
