Rogue One Cast cover

The latest trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story launched just a few hours ago, and the internet can’t seem to contain its hyper-excited shrieking. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, maybe you should just hit the jump (to lightspeed) and check it out for yourself.

I KNOW RIGHT!? Speaking for myself, I’m so excited you could cut glass with my nipples. If you didn’t watch it, the trailer shows a little of the story, which acts as a prequel to the events of A New Hope. It shows a rag-tag group of miscreants and ruffians (our Rebel Alliance heroes) banding together to investigate the mysterious super-weapon the Imperials are building. Spoilers: it’s the Death Star.

The trailer also shows off the return of Mon Mothma, the leader of the Rebel Alliance who got far too little screentime in the Original Trilogy, and it ends with a brief shot of Darth Vader. Sigh, it’s a good time to be a Star Wars fan…

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story launches in theatres on 16 December 2016.
