FILM: ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY is the first installment of the Star Wars anthology series, set just before the events of A New Hope (the 1977 original). The film follows a group of rebels on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star, the Galactic Empire’s superweapon. It features a diverse cast including Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen, and Forest Whitaker.
‘The Force Awakens may have reanimated the once-dormant franchise, but it’s Rogue One that will give Star Wars fans a new hope.’ Forrest Wickman, Slate
