Star Wars: Rogue One U.K. Tickets On Sale Soon; New TV Spot Released

As the theatrical premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story draws ever closer, Lucasfilm's marketing efforts have been ramped up to 11. Just in the past week, the studio released a featurette detailing the film's status as a prequel to the original trilogy, and the Star Wars Galactic Atlas revealed more details about Rogue One's new characters and locations. Additionally, a new poster hinted at the spinoff's World War II inspirations, which can also be felt in the Mon Calamari Admiral Raddus.

Since the calendar flipped to November, Lucasfilm's top priority has been TV spots, as several advertisements have been unveiled to give small screen viewers a taste of what to expect in their next trip to the galaxy far, far away. Now, another one has made its way online (watch it above), which highlights the plight of the Rebellion as they learn of the Empire's brand new mobile battle station.

Like most of the promos before it, this new spot essentially recycles footage that already appeared in the trailers, providing more looks at some of the battle sequences and space dogfights. There is a fresh shot of Jyn Erso's defiant response to the question, "If the Empire has this kind of power, what chance do we have?" To Jyn, the Alliance has a choice. They can either stand down and allow the Imperials to rule the galaxy or fight back. The Death Star has some close personal ties to the Erso family, so Jyn is obviously very committed to clearing their name and making a real difference in the universe.
