Rogue One is the first among the three planned Star Wars standalone spin-off movies. The movie follows the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith but is set before Star Wars: A New Hope. It narrates the story of a wayward band of rebels and their endeavor to steal the plans for the planet-destroying Death Star before it can be employed to enforce the Emperor's rule.
The Theory of Everything star Felicity Jones stars in Rogue One along with Clash of the Titans star Mads Mikkelsen, Firefly star Alan Tudyk, Milk star Diego Luna, The Last King of Scotland star Forest Whitaker and Nightcrawler star Riz Ahmed.
