While it has only been just a few months since the phenomenal premiere of Star Wars: the Force Awakens, Lucasfilm has already released a trailer for the next Star Wars story. It's not yet Episode VIII though, but rather, Star Wars: Rogue One, the first official side story to the Star Wars franchise.
Rogue One's plot is focused on a group of Rebel fighters, of which Jyn Erso (played by Academy award-nominated actress Felicity Jones) is part of. The goal of these Rebel fighters? To embark on a daring mission, which involves stealing the plans for the Death Star before the Emperor can make use of it.
Rogue One is actually pre-Star Wars: A New Hope. Check out the official trailer below:
Star Wars: Rogue One is slated to hit theaters on December 2016.
