Watch the Leaked ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ Footage Featuring Darth Vader.
The most coveted Star Wars footage in the galaxy is the secret Rogue One trailer where fans were treated to their first in-movie glimpse of Darth Vader, the iconic Sith lord who will play a small but “looming” role in the upcoming spinoff. Or at least, fans saw his silhouette reflected on a gleaming black floor, a tantalizing image paired with the instantly recognizable sound of his rasping mechanical breath. The seconds-long tease came at the end of a new trailer for the film, which will reveal how Rebel spies infiltrated the Empire and stole the blueprints for the original Death Star vital to its destruction in A New Hope.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be the first non-trilogy Star Wars movie and has its work cut out for it in tone, in terms of both paying homage to the originals (without that, fans would surely mount their own rebellion) and carving out a unique identity of its own. It already seems more war-like than the average Star Wars movie, at least in part thanks to the influence of Tony To, who produced HBO’s stellar WWII miniseries Band of Brothers, along with The Pacific. Director Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy have also gushed about the film’s guerilla-style, shoulder-mounted camerawork, which they promise will make for an “incredibly immersive experience.”
