The marketing campaign for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is in full swing. Yesterday the official press tour for the upcoming Star Wars spin-off began in Mexico with a press conference featuring director Garreth Edwards and the leads of the film, Felicity Jones and Diego Luna. Jones describes how the set managed to have an intimate feel even with the scope and scale of a Star Wars film, not to mention the pressure of being the first standalone feature in the franchise.
Today Lucasfilm has released two new TV spots for the upcoming Star Wars spin-off. The spot titled “Time to Fight” offers a new glimpse of the epic climactic battle on Scarrif and has a different delivery of the already iconic line “I rebel” from Jones as Jyn Erso.
The second spot “Contact” dives into the relationship between Jyn and her father Galen (Mads Mikkelsen), clueing us a bit more into the history between the two. Check out the spots and the full press conference below!
