Last month, we learned that Valene Kane (“The Fall“) will be playing the mother of Felicity Jones‘ Jyn Erso in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” and now it looks like we have our first footage of the character in action. A new international trailer has dropped for the “Star Wars” spinoff, featuring new material from the upcoming blockbuster.
In case you weren’t aware already, Jones leads the movie, which details the theft of the plans for the construction of the Death Star. It also bring together Mads Mikkelsen and Ben Mendelsohn in the same movie, which is something to celebrate all on its own. Here’s the official synopsis:
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
Also featuring Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” opens on December 16th.
