Rogue One - Star Wars Official International Trailer

After what feels like an eternity, Rogue One is finally nearing release. As the Star Wars spin-off draws ever closer, the number of clips being released by Disney is growing exponentially.

The latest - the film’s international trailer - debuts little new footage but does advance our knowledge of the plot ever-so-slightly.

The biggest revelation comes in thanks to Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor telling Felicity Jones’ lead rebel Jyn Erso that a message about an imminent weapons test has reached them, and it comes from Jyn's father.

Those of you who have been following Star Wars coverage in recent weeks, you’ll be aware Mads Mikkelsen - who plays Galen Erso - is Jyn’s father who, it is believed, is playing both sides. Whether a Rebel spy or an Empire-worker turned good, it has yet to be revealed.

Meanwhile, in other Star Wars news, Lando Calrissian is thought to be in the upcoming Han Solo spin-off film, with Donald Glover thought to be the favourite to take the role.
