New Rogue One Trailer Gives The Spotlight To K-2SO
Eonline.com: C-3PO, you have met your match. And he's actually a badass and he isn't annoying at all.
A new trailer for the standalone film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, released Friday, shines the spotlight on K-2SO.
The human-size droid, voiced by Alan Tudyk, is an Imperial security droid reprogrammed to serve the Rebel Alliance. He is touted for his ability to blend in at Imperial installations and outposts.
In the trailer, the droid shows us he's certainly a force (pun intended) to be reckoned with—he is seen killing a group of Stormtroopers with a single blast.
"I'll be there for you. The captain said I had to," he tells Jyn, played by main star Felicity Jones, referring to Diego Luna's Captain Andor.
The movie takes place in a time between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and the original film, Star Wars: Episode IV—A New Hope and focuses on the formation of the Rebel Alliance and their mission to steal the plans to the Death Star.
Rogue One also stars Mads Mikkelsen, Forest Whitaker and Jimmy Smits, who reprises his role of Bail Organa, Leia's adoptive father. And the movie also features, yes, Darth Vader.
