Set before Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Rogue One follows the story of the rebel spies who stole the original Death Star plans. This is mentioned in the opening crawl of the original film:
Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet.
Felicity Jones stars as Jyn Erso, along with Forrest Whittaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Diego Luna, and Alan Tudyk. The movie comes out this December and we can’t wait to see more of this expanded universe on the screen.
