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.
Everything that’s been released up to this point about Rogue One has me excited about the film and the latest trailer builds my excitement for it. We get to see more of Mads Mikkelsen’s character Galen Erso, father of main character Jyn Erso played by Felicity Jones, and how he is the one responsible for the development of the Death Star and also responsible for the Rebellion learning about the existence of the weapon in the first place.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is scheduled for cinematic release on the 16th December 2016.
