That’s right, it’s already time for another Star Wars movie. But there’s something a bit different about this one.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story doesn’t follow on from The Force Awakens — instead, it’s a ‘period’ movie set just before the events of the original Star Wars movie from 1977.
To that end, it looks like director Gareth Edwards has done an incredible job of recreating the sets, costumes and vehicles from the original film, which will give longtime fans a nostalgic thrill.
Even if you couldn’t care less when the film is set, though, this is just an intense trailer that seems to be selling us on a grittier, more dangerous and action-packed take on the franchise.
Much like The Force Awakens, this one has a strong female lead — this time, it’s Oscar nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), whose character seems to have a few issues with authority figures.
“This is a rebellion, isn’t it?” she asks. “I rebel.”
Consider us sold.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released on Thursday 16 December. Right now, though, we’re giving away 10 copies of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Blu-Ray — enter now for your chance to win!
