It’s time to get excited. The first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was released Thursday morning on ABC’s Good Morning America. It’s something fans have been waiting for ever since they heard filming had started last summer.
And while this trailer is pretty awesome, it’s mainly focused on setting things up and introducing everyone to Felicity Jones’ character Jyn Erso. She’s a little bit of an anti-hero, and those seem to be super hot right now, so this trailer should please most fans.
The film was directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and it features an impressive cast. In addition to Jones, you have Alan Tudyk, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen and Ben Mendelsohn. Rogue One tells the story of a band of rebels and their attempt to steal plans for the Death Star.
During Star Wars Celebration last year, Edwards talked a little about his inspiration for this movie and how he was looking forward to creating “a grittier take on the franchise, citing Saving Private Ryan as one of several inspirations.”
Check out the trailer below. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters December 16, 2016.
