There’s been a lot of hype around Rogue One and its promises of a darker take on the Star Wars universe. Set just before the events of the original Star Wars movie (now known as Episode IV), the story focusses on Jyn Erso (Felcicity Jones) and a group of rebel spies as they set out to steal the blueprints to the Deathstar.

The teaser trailer is a weighty one and a half minutes, and shows enough for us to know that the tone of Rogue One has gone full on Dark Side, featuring plenty of explosions, battered rebel pilots and Forest Whitaker as an angry guy in an ominous black outfit. Check it:

The full film is still a while off, and while nothing’s been confirmed, we’ve got everything crossed that Darth Vader makes an appearance, taking names on the intergalactic battlefield with his lightsaber/force grip combo.

Releasing in cinemas on the 16th December 2016, expect a full Rogue One trailer to make its way online in the very near future.
