Lucas Films and Disney have just dropped the newest trailer to Rouge One: A Star Wars Story and it is packed with surprises.

The story is set just before the events of 1977’s original movie and will reveal just how Princess Leia came to be in possession of the Death Star plans that allowed Luke Skywalker to swoop in and destroy the battle station. Set before the original trilogy, this film introduces us to Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) whose scientist father was taken away by the Empire to help construct their super weapon.

Erso has joined the Rebels after a jailbreak frees her from the clutches of the Empire. We also see Forest Whitaker’s insurgent Saw Gerrera is part machine, with a cybernetic leg, and we get a hint of an Imperial officer with his back to the camera.

Oh yeah…we also get to see a familiar masked face, Darth Vader.
