Star Wars Celebration continues this afternoon, and this time the focus is on the spinoffs. And for the fans watching it live around the world, or who have been in the convention all waiting the latest details on the next thread of the “Star Wars” universe, their patience has been rewarded.
Today, Gareth Edwards hit the stage to share the details on the first spinoff film, “Star Wars: Rogue One,” which is slated to star Felicity Jones as a rebel soldier. And the plot details have been confirmed: as long rumoured, it will revolve around a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. And oh, that’s not all. Even though the film isn’t slated to open until the end of 2016, the first teaser arrived. And while it’s mostly moody and setting, you have to admit, if you’re a “Star Wars” fans, it’ll get your hair up. “It’s set after Episode III, before IV — and a little more towards IV,” Edwards shared about where in the universe it’ll fit.
A very LQ fan-shot video has been posted online so far. We will update the site if/when it gets updated with a HQ version.
