In Rogue One we’re introduced to new characters  Jyn Erso (portrayed by Felicity Jones), Cassian Andor (portrayed by Diego Luna), and K-250 (portrayed by Alan Tudyk). The movie was directed by Gareth Edwards and is set 34 years before the events of The Force Awakens. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story explores how the Rebel Alliance was able to get inside information about one of the biggest weapons in Star Wars history – The Death Star.

Ahead of the reveal of the new trailer, a new poster was also released for Rogue One. The poster features leading character Jyn Erso surrounded by her group of Rebels. A daunting Death Star looms massively with Darth Vader on it. The poster features an array of alien and space stuff too which fans of the Star Wars franchise will love to spot, like TIE strikers, TIE fighters, U-wings, and X-wings. Interestingly, at the bottom of the poster, we’re shown stormtroopers marching through the waters of Scarif, which serves as the principal construction site of the dreaded Imperial war machine.
