The Newest ‘Rogue One’ Trailer Reveals A Deadly Twist In Jyn Erso’s Story

Nerd alert (or just general, attentive movie-goer alert): the newest trailer for Rogue One was just released, and it *gasp* actually gives us some information!

The Rogue One storyline supposedly takes place before A New Hope in the Star Wars universe, and features a small faction of rebels who are tasked with stealing plans for the Death Star.

The newest trailer reveals, however, that there is an unusual dynamic between heroine Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and the rebellion: her father, Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen) apparently designed the Death Star.

Whaaaat. 

While you recover from this newest nugget of information, you can also enjoy the many familiar faces featured in the newly-unveiled trailer, including Riz Ahmed (The Night Of), Forest Whitaker (The Last King Of Scotland), Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline), and Diego Luna (you can admit that you saw Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights).

Oh, and there’s some Darth Vader, too.

And if you just can’t stand the anticipation, never fear — Rogue One is set for release on December 16, 2016.
