With eight months away from the official release in December, Star Wars takes a look backwards in time rather than forward, taking us back to the days of Rebel Alliances, Death Stars, and more, with their newest trailer for the first Star Wars spin-off film, Star Wars: Rogue One.
As you can tell from the trailer above, this film takes place between the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. This film will follow the story of a brave group of freedom fighters on a daring mission to steal the plans of the Galactic Empire's new battle station-the Death Star.
With Star Wars Rebels currently on Disney XD, taking place around the same time and showing the formation and growth of the Rebel Alliance, it will be curious to see how this film will affect the series, or vice versa.
Star Wars Rogue One stars Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmen and Jonathan Aris, and will hit theaters on December 16, 2016.
