“Star Wars” fans found that a recent ABC TV listing reveals that a new trailer for the upcoming “Star Wars” film, “Rouge One: A Star Wars Story”, will be included with a behind-the-scenes ABC special, “Secrets of the Force Awakens”. The special, airing on July 15th at 8 p.m. EST, gives an in-depth look at the production of the previous hit “Star Wars” movie, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.
In addition to the ABC special, a panel for “Rogue One” is being held at the “Star Wars” Celebration convention, where it is believed the trailer will also be screened. The panel is to be held at 4 p.m. GMT (11 a.m. EST/8 a.m. PST) on the same day that “Secrets of the Force Awakens” will be aired.
“Rogue One”, a prequel to “Star Wars: A New Hope”, is scheduled to hit theaters in December of this year. With plenty of buzz surrounding the film, it remains to be seen whether or not Disney, hot off the tails of “The Force Awakens”, can live up to the hype.
Though “Rogue One” introduces a whole new cast, it also features the return of iconic villain Darth Vader, which is enough hype for some, but reports of the movie undergoing reshoots have left some fans concerned about meddling with the film’s production. The new trailer seems to be targeted to give fans more buzz to consume and more hope for the future of “Star Wars”.
