The teaser trailer for Rogue One:  A Star Wars Story was released onto the internets today.  Go ahead.  Give it the once over:

I gotta be honest, going into this thing…I really wasn’t all that interested.  Set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Rogue One is the story of a group of Rebel spies infiltrating the Empire to steal the plans to the Death Star.  I wasn’t sure if the story was needed.  I don’t know.  Just wasn’t feeling it.

But, after watching the trailer?  I’m totally on board.  And without a sign of Vader, even!  The movie stars Forest Whitaker, Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn and Donnie Yen and is directed by Gareth Edwards.  Rogue One:  A Star Wars Story is set to hit theaters December 16th, 2016.
