Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer: ‘This is a Rebellion, isn’t it?’

ABC’s Good Morning America on Thursday debuted a teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

And what a teaser it was! The Death Star getting fitted with its superlaser dish, swarming with classic Imperial-class Star Destroyers. AT-AT walkers chasing down Rebel troopers.

Felicity Jones’ character is confirmed as Jyn Erso, a true Rebel who’s been on her own since age 15 and already has a rap sheet a parsec long with the Empire.

Genevieve O’Reilly, whose scenes as future Rebellion leader Mon Mothma in Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith ended up on the cutting room floor as a DVD extra, returns to power here.

Actor-martial artist Donnie Yen kicking stormtrooper ass without a lightsaber, and Forest Whitaker bringing the gravitas.

The Rebellion Strikes Back!

Rogue One, set between Episode III — Revenge of the Sith and Episode VI: A New Hope, will tell the tale of the Rebel spies who obtained the Death Star plans. The movie is set for a Dec. 16 release.
