The Teaser for the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer Promises Stormtroopers, Fires, and Eventually a Real Trailer

It’s true: All through life, liking Star Wars goes hand-in-hand with being teased. The official trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars story is dropping on Good Morning America tomorrow. What you see above is a teaser for that trailer, which is exciting, because it reveals a glimpse at a new kind of stormtrooper, and also because, at some point in Rogue One, something will be on fire. Directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla), Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first in-universe Star Wars “anthology film.” It follows “a band of resistance fighters [that] unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans.” Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, and Riz Ahmed are all in the cast.

Here’s a GIF of the stormtrooper.

Our stormtrooper pal appears to have two other pals hanging out in the background in front of what looks like a moisture-farming implement, though in a suspiciously temperate climate. Three stormtroopers! That’s almost enough for a game of Hearts.
