In 2015, the force awoken breaking various box office records along the way. Now in 2016, the Star Wars franchise is set to embrace its rebellious side with Felicity Jones’ heroine Jyn Urso (The Theory Of Everything/Like Crazy) leading the charge.
The first trailer for forthcoming spin-off Star Wars: Rogue One (seemingly re-titled as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) has arrived and it is an absolute treat.
Rogue One sees director Gareth Edwards (Godzilla/Monsters) enter the beloved confines of such a renowned commodity for the first time, as we’re teased the potentially villainous nature of Ben Mendelsohn (The Place Beyond The Pines) and Donnie Yen (IP Man), underpinned by the steely narration of The Last King Of Scotland actor Forest Whitaker.
The film debuts in UK cinemas on 16th December 2016, in what is quickly becoming a regular festive slot for the Lucasfilm series with Rian Johnson’s (Looper) Episode VIII slated for December 2017.
