So, we finally got the first trailer for the next film in the Star Wars canon. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set at the time of Episode IV and centers on “a band of resistance fighters unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans”.

There will be some familiarity to the story due to its parallel plot line to the original film but we can expect it to fill in some holes as Disney has taken the reigns of the mythology and plans to expand and extend the Star Wars universe through all manner of entertainment outlets.

From first glance, I am as excited about this film as I am about The Force Awakens. How about you?
