The new Star Wars film—Rogue One—will take place between Episodes III and IV and focus on the raid to steal Death Star plans, according to details released over the weekend. A teaser for the Star Wars prequel Rogue One leaked online Sunday from the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California. The teaser was shown to the audience who gasped at seeing the original Death Star looming over a planet with Obi Wan Kenobi saying from A New Hope: "For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times... before the Empire."
Director Gareth Edwards said the film takes place after Revenge of the Sith and follows rebels who steal the plans for the Death Star that later allows Luke Skywalker to destroy it in the original Star Wars film. Rogue One stars Felicity Jones of The Theory of Everything.
