Does this Rogue One TV Spot have a Star Wars Rebels Easter Egg?
A new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story TV spot debuted yesterday, and though brief, it does have one interesting shot that many fans are excited about. At the :07 second mark in the video comes the shot seen above, and upon further examination appears to have a very familiar ship in the bottom of the frame: the Ghost from Star Wars Rebels!
Do you think it’s the same ship? Will Star Wars Rebels eventually depict the events of Rogue One in the series? Sound off below!
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure.
