Earlier this year, we got to see our first real glimpse into the spin-off film which will focus on a group of rebels trying to defeat the Empire by obtaining the plans for their big weapon: The Death Star! (Basically, what Leia gives to R2-D2 in Episode IV). Leading the cast is Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, a woman with a checkered who looks to do her bit by helping stop the Empire from succeeding in its development of a weapon capable of destroying planets.
With appearances from Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothra, Jimmy Smits again portraying Bail Organa and the legendary James Earl Jones once again voicing the sith lord Darth Vader. These characters, along with those making their screen debut thanks to director Gareth Edwards (Godzilla 2014 remake), will certainly be very welcome when this film arrives in cinemas this December.
