The synopsis for Rogue One is as follows:
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.
Rogue One could be an interesting film indeed. Visually it looks different in terms of scope/scale in the battle sequences and the Death Star compared to that of the Episode series. The Darth Vader tease at the end is a nice touch to get even the casual film viewers interested even more so to check this film out when it’s released. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Mads Mikkelsen, Forest Whitaker, Jiang Wen, Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Genevieve O’Reilly and the voice of James Earl Jones.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is scheduled for cinematic release on the 16th December 2016.
