Earlier today, Disney released a 16-second preview of the next trailer for ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,’ in advance of showing the full trailer during Thursday night’s Olympic coverage on television. While the short clip did have a few new things to see, 16 seconds goes by in the blink of an eye! Fortunately, Disney has also released their “full” synopsis of the film today, to help tide us over until the release of the full trailer.
While there is nothing spectacularly new here, the final sentence of the first paragraph may be telegraphing the “vibe” of the film a bit, as there has been much speculation recently in regards to how much of the film was reshot, and why. It sounds like the focus remains firmly planted on the long-time Star Wars mission of “there’s always hope” and being a part of something bigger than your individual self.
Read the full synopsis below, and be sure to either be in front of your TV or your computer on Thursday night so you can catch the new trailer for yourself!
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,’ an all-new epic adventure.

Tony Schaab mixed up all this fake puke at home and then he went to this movie theater, hid the puke in his jacket, climbed up to the balcony, and then he made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa… and then he dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then – this was horrible – all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other… and he never felt so bad in his entire life! A lover of most things sci-fi and horror, Tony is an author by day and a DJ by night. Come hang out with Tony on Facebook and Twitter to hear him spew semi-funny nonsense and get your opportunity to finally put him in his place.
