The final seconds of a new movie trailer released Thursday night during the Rio Olympics broadcast has Star Wars fans panting.
The two-minute ad for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” teases a return to the big screen for the universe’s most notorious bad guy — Darth Vader.
Though filled with typical Star Wars action and special effects, it was Vader’s image that really had social media aflutter:
