After the runaway success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I was not particularly looking forward to waiting 2 years for the next Star Wars movie.  Fortunately, Disney will be filling the gap years with side stories set in the Star Wars universe.  On December 26, they will release ROGUE ONE, directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz.  ROGUE ONE stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Neil Breen and Alan Tudyk. From what we know about the movie, it focuses on a group of Rebel spies working to steal the Death Star plans prior to A NEW HOPE.  

Here's the teaser they posted up this morning on Star Wars.com


 

The teaser focuses pretty much entirely on Felicity Jones' character, Jyn Erso, a Rebel who seems to be a real pain in the butt to the Empire as well as the Rebellion.  The whole teaser really reminded me of Star Wars: Rebels, which makes a lot of sense since it's set in the same time period.  I loved The Force Awakens, and Disney/Marvel has been doing some terrific comic book tie-ins to Star Wars.  To me, the Star Wars universe is in really good hands, and I can't wait to see what they can do with ROGUE ONE!
