Fans at last year’s Star Wars Celebration got sights on the teaser trailer for ROGUE ONE and now MovieWeb shared video of that clip. Although we’re still just about a year out from the release ROGUE ONE, the anticipation and excitement is already steadily growing… for us at least!

The teaser features a voiceover by Obi-Wan Kenobi when he’s explaining his history to Luke in A NEW HOPE. We get sights on a planet that appears to be Alderaan with a giant shape taking form in the sky above… the Death Star!

For more than a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times… before the Empire.


ROGUE ONE takes place before the events of STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE and will be a departure from the saga films but have elements that are familiar to the Star Wars universe. It goes into new territory, exploring the galactic struggle from a ground-war perspective. It’s the first of many standalone Star Wars films to come under the House of Mouse.

ROGUE ONE opens in theaters December 16, 2016.
