ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY (Official HD Teaser Trailer)
The first footage from the film debuted on Good Morning America Thursday. The movie, which takes place just before the events depicted in 1977’s Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, follows the Rebel spies’ efforts to steal the Empire’s plans for the first Death Star.
Directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla, Monsters), Rogue One is the first of several planned spin-off movies, and is said to take place just before the events of the original film. In it, a group led by Felicity Jones sets out to steal plans for the Death Star — the same plans, it seems, that Princess Leia stored in the memory banks of R2-D2 back in 1977.
