New TV spot and teaser images for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Most of this Rogue One: A Star Wars Story TV teaser is recycled from previous trailers, but there’s a cool new shot of Rebel X-Wings and the new U-Wing engaging those ever-imposing Imperial walkers in battle on the surface of the planet Scarif.

The TV spot is called “Together,” and aside from bringing together existing footage, the name is appropriate as the Rebellion seemingly struggles to find the will to persevere on the eve of what Princess Leia would later call its most desperate hour.

With just over a month to go until the film’s release — Dec. 16 — publicity has been ramping up for the first “anthology” movie set in the Star Wars universe but apart from the “Episodic” films of the main Skywalker Saga.

If you’ve chosen a side, there’s even some cool new promotional banners, one for the Empire represented by gleaming white Stormtroopers and the other for the Alliance with Rogue One’s ragtag crew, on collision course in the Scarif surf my moonlight. Wait — that’s no moon …

I find the tropical backdrop interesting, not only because it’s so new for Star Wars (aside from a few glimpses of jungle settings in the waning days of the Clone Wars) but because it contrasts with the dark, gritty aesthetic of the Original Trilogy from which Rogue One is so intentionally drawing inspiration. It’s like we’re in a renaissance of Star Wars, where the gleaming palettes of the Prequels are merging with those episodes’ darker, more lived-in forebears. And I like it.
