See The First Trailer For The New Star Wars Film

The first trailer for this year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has been revealed.

Rogue One will be the first spin-off of the Star Wars franchise, and is directed by Gareth Edwards, the man behind the most recent version of Godzilla.

It follows last year’s hugely popular instalment Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by JJ Abrams, which broken box office records raking in £1.4 billion worldwide.

Theory of Everything actress Felicity Jones plays the leading role as Jyn Erso, starring alongside Riz Ahmed, Mads Mikkelsen and Forest Whitaker.

The plot follows a Rebel mission to steal plans for the Death Star, taking place before the first part of the original series, Episode IV: A New Hope.

“It comes down to a group of people who don’t have magical powers who band together to bring hope to the galaxy,” Edwards said to Flicks and the City last year.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released in the UK and UK on 16th December.
