Yes! It’s time to start getting excited about Star Wars all over again as we get our first peek at Rogue One.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first of a series of standalone movies set in a galaxy far, far away. Described by Lucasfilm as a heist movie, Rogue One is the tale of a band of resistance fighters who plot to steal the plans of the Death Star in a attempt to thwart the Empire before it becomes too powerful. Set before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope the story is pitched as being grittier than anything seen in the Star Wars cinematic universe to date.
The film is being directed by Gareth Edwards and stars some familiar faces including Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) in the lead role, Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) and Firefly favourite Alan Tudyk who is set to appear as a motion capture character.
Expect to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in cinemas on December 16th.
