'Rogue One' Footage Leaked

During a Disney shareholder meeting on Thursday morning, chief executive officer Bob Iger showed off some footage from Rogue One. /Film has a description of the "sizzle reel" from one of their readers, but a few seconds of leaked footage has landed online. (Watch the first 25 seconds of the video, the rest is discussion.) 
The footage shows a TIE fighter flying past AT-ATs, through the clouds, and towards the looming shape of the Death Star, before the title card runs. This closely resembles both the description of the footage and the leaked teaser from Celebration V, so we can assume that it's legit. The official teaser will be more exciting, showing us the film's protagonists, at least one type of cool new stormtrooper, and maybe even Darth Vader himself.
The text at the top of the video appears to be the name of the file, reading "ROGUE1_BvS_1_1.mxf." This would suggest that the first teaser trailer for Rogue One will be coming with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (often abbreviated as "BvS") on March 25th. This makes sense, considering the recent reports that multiple finished trailers are currently making the rounds at Disney before release. What are you hoping for in the trailer? Tell me in the comments or tweet to @SithObserver, and may the Force be with you all.
