added: Thu, Oct 13th '16

"Star Wars" fans have a reason to rejoice as today brings a brand-new peek at what will likely be the biggest film of this holiday season. Check out the latest "Rogue One" trailer, which offers new glimpses of the much-anticipated "Star Wars" standalone movie, starring British actress Felicity Jones (Inferno, The Theory of Everything) as a scrappy rebel fighter, named Jyn Erso.

The film, helmed by "Godzilla" director Gareth Edwards, takes place before the events of the original 1977 "Star Wars" movie and follows Jyn Erso as she is recruited by the Rebel Alliance to take part in a dangerous mission to steal the top-secret engineering blueprints of the Empire's Death Star. She is joined by a motley group of renegades, including a rebel Captain (Diego Luna), a former Imperial pilot (Riz Ahmed), a rebel droid fighter (voiced and mo-capped by Alan Tudyk), a blind spiritual warrior (Donnie Yen), and his assassin partner (Jiang Wen).

The cast also includes Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker as Clone Wars veteran Saw Gerrera, Mads Mikkelsen as Jyn Erso's father Galen, and Emmy-winner Ben Mendelsohn as the evil Imperial Officer, Director Orson Krennic. While cameos include James Earl Jones, reprising the voice of Darth Vader, Genevieve O'Reilly as Mon Mothma, and Jimmy Smits as Bail Organa, who is Princess Leia's adoptive father from the prequels.

Based on a story idea by Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor John Knoll, which was originated from a footnote in the 1977 opening crawl, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" will be coming to theaters December 16.

From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
