This is a big week for Star Wars fans.
First, the release of The Force Awakens to DVD/Blu Ray and digital media. Now, we’re getting a sneak peak into their upcoming spin-off film, Rogue 1, which just released its trailer.
Rogue 1 is set just before the events of Episode IV. In case you need your brain refreshed (because hey, it’s confusing when you have to use the 4-5-6-1-2-3-7 counting system), Episode IV found Princess Leia smuggling stolen plans of the Galactic Empire’s Death Star.
Rogue 1 focuses on the team of rebels who originally stole the plans to the Death Star. The film stars Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Ben Mendelshon, Forest Whitaker and Donnie Yen. Rogue 1 is set to be released on December 16th, 2016…a mere 364 days before Episode VIII premieres. Thank you to Disney for giving us some hors d’oeuvres before our big meal in 2017.
