The first trailer from this year’s new Star Wars movie was just released

Star Wars Rogue One First Trailer

Rogue One is this year’s new Star Wars movie. It’s not part of the new trilogy because it’s a “Star Wars Story” instead. Disney is looking to broaden the Star Wars universe by releasing additional stories focusing on certain events and characters related to the trilogy, but that don’t fit into the main movies.

Rogue One tells the story of a band of rebels looking to steal the plans of the Empire’s secret weapon, the Death Star, and now the film’s first trailer has been released.

Set between the third and fourth episodes of Star Wars, Rogue One will show us how the rebels got their hands on the plans of the Death Star, which Luke and friends destroyed in A New Hope.

The movie will star a bunch of new characters including new droids and stormtroopers, but it’ll also bring back Darth Vader in all his glory, at least according to some reports. Set to debut in December, the first teaser trailer of Rogue One has finally been released alongside a teaser for the next trailer.

Check out both new videos, which are embedded below.
