Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, “Trust”
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel are producing, with John Knoll and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers. The story is by John Knoll and Gary Whitta, and the screenplay is by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” opens in U.S. theaters on December 16, 2016.

A new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story aired during Olympics coverage recently and it gave us much more information on the plot of this new film than we’ve heard before.
Rogue One takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, tells the story of unlikely heroes who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. If you’re having trouble fitting this new movie into the timeline, think of it as in-between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope (the original Star Wars movie); in other words, after Anakin Skywalker becomes Darth Vader but before Luke and Leia grow up and join the rebellion.
I’m really excited about this new movie. There’s such a rich universe in the Star Wars movies, there must be plenty of stories other than those focusing on the Skywalker family to be told. It’s a familiar setting and a familiar world, but with new characters to meet and know.
The cast includes Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, and Forest Whitaker. “Rogue One” is directed by Gareth Edwards, produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, and Simon Emanuel, executive produced by John Knoll and Jason McGatlin, and co-produced by John Swartz and Kiri Hart.
