A new Star Wars movie will tell the story of a mission by a group of resistance fighters to steal plans to the infamous Death Star.
The plot of Rogue One was revealed to fans at the Star Wars Celebration convention in California on Saturday.
It will be the first in a series of on-screen adventures exploring stories outside the core Star Wars saga.
The movie will be set before the first part of the original series, Episode IV: A New Hope.
It was released in 1977 and began with the Empire's pursuit of a ship carrying Princess Leia and blueprints to the lethal space station.
Rogue One will star British Oscar nominee Felicity Jones, as a rebel soldier.
The movie starts filming in the UK this summer and is due to be released in December 2016, a year after Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
