It’s finally here! After months of anticipation, and a few excellent teasers, we finally get our first real look at Star Wars: Rogue One.

The trailer is jam-packed with intergalactic goodness, and shows us a bit of how the scrappy rebel alliance stole the Death Star plans. Of course, in order to see exactly how they accomplished that feat, we’ll have to watch the movie in its entirety. What we do know, is that this film is to be the first in the proposed, Star Wars Anthology series. This inaugural edition will be the first of what Disney hopes to be many, with others beginning production as we speak. Another to be expected soon, is the Han Solo origin story, which has captured headlines for its extensive casting process.

Rogue One itself, looks to be a sort of war epic. The film was directed by Godzilla rebooter, Gareth Edwards, and stars Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker, and Mads Mikkelsen among others. Some trailer highlights include heroes staring down TIE fighters in the face, karate dudes kicking Empire butt, and a millisecond preview of the ultimate baddie, Darth Vader. We can only imagine that this film will follow in the footsteps of Force Awakens, and rise to be the year’s biggest box office smash.
