Director Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) says shooting the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story film was a bit like being a four year-old kid playing with Star Wars toys again. Disney released a special behind the scenes video from Rogue One with Edwards discussing what it’s like to be one the set of a Star Wars film. Felicity Jones also weighs in on being a part of the sci-fi action epic which is set to arrive in theaters on December 16, 2016. The sizzle reel debuted at the Star Wars Celebration in London where director Edwards, producer Kathleen Kennedy, and Rogue One stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen, and Forest Whitaker took the stage and provided a preview of what Star Wars fans can expect from this stand-alone film.
The Plot: Lucasfilm’s Rogue One, which takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, tells the story of unlikely heroes who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star.
