If you’ve been following the coverage of the 2016 Rio Olympics then there is no way you missed the debut of the newest trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that dropped this past Thursday.

The first full-length trailer follows a group of rebels with a secret plan to destroy the Death Star which is lead by Felicity Jones. The film takes place at the beginning of the rebellion, before Luke and Leah and at this moment in time we are seeing people loosing their faith on the force. The trailer transports us to a new land called Jedah, which serves the purpose of embodying the place that speaks to the themes of losing your faith and the choice between letting the Empire win, or evil win, and good prevailing.

This new trailer also gives us a “first look” at Darth Vader as it is during this point in the rebellion that he begins his ascend as the greatest threat to the Rebl Alliance.

Take a look at the trailer below while we await for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to hit theaters on December 16th.
