Rebellion! Stealing Death Star plans! Mon Mothma! Lucasfilm has released the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and it looks dark and great—really bringing us into the pre-A New Hope Rebellion era, where the resistance leaders are getting desperate and need to know just what the Empire is building.
Enter Felicity Jones’ character, Jyn Erso, who seems to be your typical spitfire turned toward a noble cause. We don’t know much about Diego Luna or Forest Whitaker’s characters, though the latter gets a rousing speech toward the end of the trailer. And what’s with Jyn wearing Imperial clothes? Is this heist going to turn all Ocean’s Eleven with disguises, or should we be worried about something darker?
Here’s the official synopsis:
Following the foundation of the Galactic Empire, a wayward band of Rebel fighters comes together to carry out a desperate mission: to steal the plans for the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the Emperor’s rule.
Watch the trailer now:
Rogue One comes to theaters December 16.
