The first footage from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has arrived with considerably less fanfare than anything related to last year’s blockbuster The Force Awakens. But, take heart, more is coming. The teaser clip below is a few seconds of sweet Star Wars goodness (including a new look Stormtrooper) announcing the film’s first trailer, set to debut tomorrow on Good Morning America.
Directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla), Rogue One: A Star Wars Story follows a group of rebels working to steal plans for the Death Star. Reportedly, the film will take place between Episodes III and IV, setting up the events in the original Star Wars. George Lucas originally conceived the story and, according to Collider, Christopher McQuarrie was recently brought aboard to work on the script. Supposedly, the story will not feature any Jedi and focus instead on the rebel alliance.
Rogue One features Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, and Jiang Wen. Look out for it in theaters December 16, 2016.
