Taking the Road Less Traveled By

From Gareth Edwards, the director of the last Godzilla, here comes Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

An expansion of the massive and successful Star Warsverse the world already knows and loves, the film will center on the adventures of a rogue band of resistance fighters that came together to steal the Death Star plans between Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and the OG, Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.

In the first of three expected spin-off anthology films, Academy Award nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) leads an all-star cast as Jyn Erso, a badass bitch who embodies the notion of being a rebel at a time of war (and who already has people thinking).

Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn’s (Netflix’s Bloodline), Forest Whitaker, and, maybe, even a certain dark father, among others, co-star. In fact, for a change, it’s all men showing up to support a woman! Which is all kinds of awesome.

Check out the first teaser trailer for the Dec. 16 release now.
