    The first Starcraft II commercial was shown today an hour ago or so (not exactly sure, I missed it :p ) and it's been officially released on YouTube.

    Likely a character in the campaign, since this is footage from the campaign. :\

    Also, cool trailer.

    I'm pretty sure it's Kerrigan.

    Ya it's Kerrigan because in one picture you can see the Zerg swarming around her in 0:13.

    Yeah, I also think she's Kerrigan. As L2Love said, the Zerg swarming around her, but also the terrain and environment indicated to it.

    It has to be Kerrigan. How many red haired ghosts do you think there are? Plus as others have stated, she was surrounded by Zerg and was probably about to be captured, just like what happened to Kerrigan.

    That means no matter what they serve us, they will serve it on 27th and no delay. But then what will those 'it is just beta' boys say. So their chance to do at least some of the improvements are now, considering there wont be much time between beta and release.

    Alright, just to make this clear. It's one of the "Cut-out" characters.
    She looks more like Nova's outfit with red hair. It's not kerrigan. Kerrigan had long hair.

    Not necessarily. The release date for the United Kingdom has already been pushed back to the 30th.

    Maybe her pet ultralisk gave her a haircut?

    I'll be honest, it does sort of look like this.. But the setting makes me think otherwise. Things can change.

    Ok, just to make this all clear, that IS Kerrigan in the cinematic, pre-infested Kerrigan to be exact. In fact, its been confirmed by Blizzard that we're getting a full cinematic of a flashback to when Kerrigan is abandoned in New Gettysburg by Mengsk (which would've been the 9th mission, "New Gettysburg", in the Starcraft 1 vanilla Terran campaign). I forget where Blizzard said it, probably in the Lore panel at the last Blizzcon, but I remember them saying it.

    It also helps that a missing part of that cinematic HERE has the exact same lines from the Starcraft 1 New Gettysburg mission. I'm sure its a part of the Kerrigan cinematic ;)
