In a wonderful surprise in what was an insanely rough week for everyone last week (oh, wait that was just me? Okay well it is still a wonderful surprise), we got the first and very unexpected trailer for the upcoming “Star Wars” spinoff movie.
Rogue One, or Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, released a teaser trailer and even though it is short it is amazing.
The first spinoff film takes place before the events of A New Hope but after Revenge of the Sith and centers around a band of rebels who plan to steal the plans for the Death Star. It follows a new character, a young woman played by Felicity Jones known as Jyn Erso, who would seemingly become a rebel spy working against the Empire in the earlier days of the Rebellion.
One of the most exciting bits of the teaser however is MON MOTHMA! The character’s reappearance from Revenge of the Sith is super exciting.
Rogue One has an impressive cast including Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen and Alan Tudyk.
The film is currently due for a Dec. 16 release. You can watch the teaser below:
