A heist movie set in a galaxy far, far away, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story promises intergalactic larceny, Imperial fury and rebellious warfare. After much anticipation, Gareth Edwards' Star Wars anthology movie now has a first teaser to share. And it's a doozy.

Rogue One is set between Revenge Of The Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV, and closer to the latter. It follows a group of Rebel soldiers who set out on a dangerous mission to steal the plans for the original Death Star and bring hope to the galaxy.

Felicity Jones plays a character named Jyn Erso, leading up a cast that includes Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Jonathan Aris, Eunice Olumide, and Genevieve O'Reilly reprising her role from Revenge Of The Sith as young Mon Mothma. Still unclear whether there will be Bothans.

We'll find out on December 16, when Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is released worldwide. Head to Empire's All You Need To Know feature on Rogue One right here. It's the most comprehensive thing this side of a full General Dodonna briefing.
