The second Rogue One trailer has been released. The first trailer introduced us to Jyn Erso, the main hero of the story. The second trailer focuses on the band of heroes that will take on the dangerous mission of stealing the plans to the Death Star before the empire obliterates all in its path. Rogue One has all the feel of a regular entry into the Star Wars series. There were clones, blasters, and even Darth Vader made an appearance. One major iconic Star Wars item that was missing was lightsabers. Considering that these rebels are not Jedi, it does make sense that they have not made an appearance.
In the end, if Vader is there, it should be assumed that there will be lightsabers and likely a full blown lightsaber duel. The first trailer gave me the sense that Jyn is actually Rey’s mother. If that is the case, then maybe it is possible that Jyn ends up being the one to have the lightsaber duel with Vader. This is only speculation. It could be that the decision to remove the official Star Wars title from the movie is because it lacks any battles between the Sith and Jedi. Only time will tell. For now, make sure to check out the newest trailer below. Rogue One is set to release on December 16th.
