Disney has dropped the full Australian trailer for ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY after several days of teasing. Starring Felicity Jones, it tells the story of how the Rebels obtained the plans for the Death Star. It’s in cinemas 15 December 2016 from Disney, ensuring that our new Christmas tradition with Star Wars doesn’t involve Bea Arthur singing.

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY is the first film in the new standalone movies from Lucasfilm. It tells the story of how a group of unlikely heroes unite to undertake a daring and seemingly impossible mission to steal the plans for an ultimate weapon of destruction. Written by Chris Weitz and John Knoll, it’s directed by Gareth Edwards.

From those first notes of the Imperial Death March through to that dramatic conclusion, we’re hooked. Then again, it was a fairly good chance we would be. What do you think? Sound off in the comments section below.
