Last year in Anaheim Star Wars Celebration revealed the second teaser trailer for Episode VII: The Force Awakens. It was a key moment in the marketing build up, giving fans of George Lucas’s saga what they had been waiting three decades for.
‘Chewie, we’re home…’ happened, Harrison Ford and Peter Mayhew appeared in the final seconds of the new trailer, John Williams’ score crashed against the jubilant crowds and all was well. This year Celebration moves to London, and the new film on everyone’s mind is Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The first of the spin offs from the main saga, there is a lot riding on Edwards’ film. Taking place just before the beginning of A New Hope we’ll get to learn how the plans for the Death Star ended up in R2-D2, setting in motion the destiny of Luke Skywalker.

The first trailer for Rogue One introduced all our new characters, showing us a gritty side to Star Wars we hadn’t seen before. Deathtroopers clad in black armour, AT-ATs on the beach, the return of Mon Mothma and much more.
But there’s more, much more to come and at Celebration Edwards and Kathleen Kennedy unveiled our best look yet at the new Star Wars film in a very revealing featurette taking us behind the scenes of the movie. Check it out below and stay tuned for the trailer.
