On December 16, Disney is releasing a new "Star Wars" movie. "Rogue One" isn't a part of the regular galactic saga. Instead, it's a spin-off movie that takes place before the events of 1977's "Star Wars: A New Hope."
It follows an attempt by the Rebellion to steal the Galactic Empire's plans for the Death Star. It'll also be about the motley crew that's up for the task, assembled from different corners of the universe. With a new timeframe, we also get a bunch of new characters.
Here's what the characters look like off set.
The movie's villain is Director Orson Krennic, an ambitious Imperial character who's bent on destroying Rebel forces and is in charge of advanced weapons research.

Krennic enlists scientist Galen Erso to help on a secret project to build the first Death Star weapon. Erso is of interest to both the Rebellion and Empire for his "doomsday knowledge."
