Courtesy of Star Wars Celebration last weekend, we have some details about one of the upcoming Star Wars spinoffs. We now have plot details and a teaser for Rogue One, the first of many spinoffs that they’re now calling the Star Wars Anthology. Before we get to the teaser, we’ll start with the plot details. Rogue One will follow a band of resistance fighters on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. If you’ve seen the original trilogy before, (SPOILER) you know that they succeeded.
Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and stars academy award nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything). And it looks like we’re getting Star Wars for Christmas two years in a row, because Rogue One hits theatres December 2016.
