Katie Ledecky and Simone Biles may be leading heroes at the 2016 Rio Games, but Disney took advantage of a break in its televised action to remind us of another young heroine that it is featuring this year: Jyn Erso, as played by star Felicity Jones.

Disney landed its latest “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” trailer on Thursday evening. Viewers are being introducing to a new Star Wars family, as Forest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera tells us: “The world is coming undone. Imperial flags reign across the galaxy.” Soon, we glimpse Diego Luna’s Capt. Cassian Andor, as Jyn becomes her mission.

And then, at the end of the two-minute-plus trailer, a hint of Darth himself.

The trailer gives rise to so many questions, of course. Among them:

Will these rebels become household names, as did Kylo Ren, Finn and Rey in “The Force Awakens”?

Can trailers void of lightsabers get Star Wars fans hyped up?

Is this half-second of Darth Vader indicative of a small role? Seeing a Vader in his prime, courtesy of modern technology, could be a sight to line up for.

There seems to be a darker tone in this trailer than we’re used to seeing from Star Wars. Could this work for an entire movie?

And we know what’s going to happen to the Death Star. Are the events that lead to its destruction interesting enough to make the public flock to this film?

“Rogue One,” directed by Gareth Edwards, opens Dec. 16.
