New Star Wars trailer for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story"

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The dust has barely settled from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," but audiences already have a new installment to get excited for.

The world got a glimpse of "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" in a teaser trailer that debuted Thursday on TV and online.

The movie looks back to the events before 1977's "A New Hope," introducing the ragtag rebels who unite to steal plans for the Death Star.

One of them is Felicity Jones from "The Theory of Everything." The film directed by Gareth Edwards also stars Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker and Ben Mendelsohn.

It's the first in a series of spinoff films set in the "Star Wars" universe that will include a young Han Solo story.

"Rogue One" hits theaters on Dec. 16.
