This is some pretty unexpected news. Today during the Rio Olympics, a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story TV spot aired with a new shot from the film. But the most exciting thing is that the TV spot teased a new trailer set to air this Thursday.

I highly doubt that this is the teaser from Celebration Europe, as that was a exclusive for the convention. I’m betting that this is the official theatrical trailer. If you remember, the NFL aired the final The Force Awakens trailer on ESPN during halftime of a Monday night game in October. This is another way to boost views for the Olympics. We don’t know the exact time that the trailer will air, but I would expect a official press release from starwars.com this week. So there you have it–time to get excited for the next Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer!
