Star Wars: The Force Awakens released on Blu-ray/DVD this Tuesday, April 5, so many fans are still rewatching the film and its excellent bonus features for the umpteenth time. You’re going to have to take a break, though, and allow two minutes to focus on the first official teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the initial installment in an ongoing anthology series.

Debuting today on Good Morning America, Rogue One‘s first look focuses on Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso, who leads a group of Rebel fighters who have been tasked with stealing the plans for The Emperor’s Death Star in hopes to weaken the Galactic Empire. The film is set before the events of 1977’s A New Hope.

Rogue One‘s stacked cast is rounded out by Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and more. The film is directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla) and set to hit theaters on December 16. You can watch the first trailer below.
