The film is directed Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and stars Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), Donnie Yen (Ip Man), Alan Tudyk, (Firefly) and Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale).
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story follows the rebels who stole the plans for the Death Star prior to Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. The trailer features our star Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) seemingly being arrested and charged by Imperials, and then joining the rebels for a dangerous mission. We also see Forest Whitaker’s character being grizzed and philosophic and Donnie Yen beating the pulp out some Stormtroopers. Poor guys.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is due in theaters this December.
