The first teaser trailer for the new Star Wars movie has been released – and you can check it out right here.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen and Mads Mikkelsen, tells the story of a group of rebel fighters on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.
The one minute, 38 second teaser reveals new-look stormtroopers and details about the lead character played by British actress Jones.
At the start of the trailer, she states her name as Jyn Erso, and is described as “reckless, aggressive and undisciplined”.
The film, out in December, is the first in a series of on-screen adventures exploring stories outside the core Star Wars saga.
It is set before the first part of the original series, Episode IV: A New Hope.
After a montage of images of stormtroopers coming under fire, Jones’s character says, “This is a rebellion, isn’t it? I rebel.”
Erso is briefed on her mission, over images of the Death Star: “A major weapons test is imminent we need to know what it is and how to destroy it.”
The film is directed by Gareth Edwards, whose previous movies were Godzilla and Monsters.
Since its release in mid-December, J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens has raked in over $2 billion at the global box office, making it the third highest-grossing film of all time behind James Cameron’s Avatar and Titanic.
The film has also racked up countless awards since its release at the tail end of 2015.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is out on DVD and BluRay later this month, takes place 30 years after the events of Return Of The Jedi.
The film’s script was written by Abrams, Toy Story 3 writer Michael Arndt and Star Wars franchise veteran Lawrence Kasdan.
