‘Rogue One’: TV Spots “Jyn & Cassian” and “Protect”

The force is strong with the marketing push for the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Lucasfilm is dropping one TV spot after another right now. This morning two new spots hit the web. Each putting the spotlight on the friendships between the heroes of the Rogue One team. First up is “Jyn & Cassian” which offers a look at the bravery the two unlikely heroes possess. The second spot released titled “Protect” showcases footage from previously trailers but gives us a bit more of when Baze fires his rocket launcher at an AT-ACT. The spot also features a quick beat that displays the hilarious dynamic between Chirrut and Baze.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters December 16, 2016.

Produced by Lucasfilm, the film stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Mads Mikkelson, Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk, Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker with a script penned by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy. Directed by Garreth Edwards.

From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves. In theaters December 2016.
