The hype is strong with this one.

With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just over two months from release, fans might be wondering when the next trailer for the movie will be released. The answer, it turns out, is "much sooner than you'd think."

Announced via Lucasfilm's weekly Star Wars Show series, a new trailer for Rogue One will be released Thursday. To accompany the announcement, Lucasfilm debuted a new poster for Gareth Edwards' Death Star heist movie, showing a spectral head of Darth Vader looming in the background against the Death Star itself.

Also announced in this week's Star Wars Show, Marvel's Star Wars: Darth Vader series — which releases its final issue today — will be replaced by an ongoing Star Wars: Doctor Aphra series, which will feature the fan-favorite supporting character in all-new stories by her creator Kieron Gillen and artist Kev Walker.
