We’re still some months from the newest installment of Star Wars with The Force Awakens, but there’s already news on the first spinoff movie from the main, and soon-t0-be 7 film franchise, Star Wars: Rogue One. Felicity Jones will star in the film that was recently stated to have a plot happen between Episode III and Episode IV. The reason? It will center around the Death Star!
“A band of resistance fighters unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans in ‘Star Wars’ anthology film, Rogue One,” was tweeted from the official Star Wars Twitter account the other day. Jones will play one of those soldiers who now lives in a world devoid of the Jedi order. A full description of the revealed details, as well as the highlights from a teaser trailer shown at last week’s ‘Star Wars Celebration’, go here to variety.com.
Star Wars: Rogue One is set to release December 2016, one full year after the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
