It will be released in North America on December 16, 2016. The official Star Wars website explains the premise with the following: “In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.” Check out the video below for a sneak peek!
