Star Wars Rogue One Trailer Shows Empire’s Dark Side

Disney has released the official trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Rogue One takes place just prior to the events of 1977’s Star Wars. As the Empire plants its flag in systems across the galaxy, a Rebellion built on guerrilla warfare and espionage begins to fight back.

The Rogue One trailer, which runs about 2 minutes in length gives us a better look at the band of Rebels who we’ll watch steal the plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the Death Star. The new cast of characters is led by Jyn Erso, played by Felcity Jones, but will return some familiar faces from Star Wars movies past, including a certain Dark Lord of the Sith.

Besides Jones, Rogue One stars Diego Luna as Cassian Andor, Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera, Donnie Yen as Chirrut Imwe, Riz Ahmed as Bodhi Rook, Jiang Wen as Baze Malbus, and Alan Tudyk as K-2SO. It hits theaters Dec. 16.
