This new poster for 'Rogue One' was released on Wednesday.



The latest trailer for Rogue: One: A Star Wars Story was released this morning, revealing slightly more about the plot of the upcoming Star Wars prequel spinoff that follows the rebel mission to steal the plans for the Death Star and sets up the events of A New Hope. 

In a flashback, we get our first look at Mads Mikkelsen as Galen, the father of Felicity Jones' character, Jyn Erso, teasing to his (possibly involuntary) ties to The Empire and his role in creating the planet-destroying space station. 

And, as with the first trailer, there's another brief glimpse of Darth Vader. This time we see just the back of the helmet as Ben Mendelsohn's character, Director Orson Krennic, briefs him on the immense power of the Death Star.

Rogue One is set to be released on Dec. 16 and also stars Forest Whitaker, Riz Ahmed, Donnie Yen and Diego Luna. 

If you need to catch up further, you can check out the first full-length trailer, released in August, here.
