Trailer TIme: Star Wars Anthology – Rogue One (2016) *PLOT DETAILS FOR THE FIRST STAR WARS SPIN-OFF*

Capping the biggest weekend of Star Wars news and trailers in over a decade was the release of the teaser trailer for the first-ever non-episodic Star Wars film. Gareth Edwards, director of Star Wars: Rogue One, confirmed the rumor that the movie will be a heist film centered around the mission that stole the plans for the first Death Star. This isn’t an official release, so try to get a look in case it gets taken down, but it’ll get you excited for more than just Episode VII to come.

“A band of resistance fighters unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans in Star Wars anthology film, Rogue One.”

Academy Award Nominee Felicity Jones has already been cast as the lead, and will play one of the resistance fighters. I’d expect more casting announcements to follow shortly. The spin-off films will officially be referred to as “Anthology” films to differenciate them from the regular “Episode” installments. Star Wars: Rogue One is set to open Christmas 2016.
