This teaser for Star Wars: Rogue One was originally shown to an audience at the Star Wars Celebration convention back in April 2015, but leaked copies never stayed online long until now. With The Force Awakens breaking all the records and Adam Driver (Kylo Ren) hosting Saturday Night Live last night, it's a good time crank up the hype machine for Star Wars: Rogue One, coming out in a mere 11 months. The film takes place immediately before the 1977 Star Wars, and is about how Rebel spies stole the plans for the first Death Star—the same plans that Princess Leia hides on R2-D2 at the beginning of A New Hope.​

Although a bit blurry, you can see a TIE fighter flying overhead on a jungle moon—and as we all know, TIE fighters are never found far from their base—where the in-construction Death Star is in very close orbit, dominating the sky. Then, audio of Rebel soldiers giving a panicked "fall back" order plays.

It's been almost a year since this camera footage of what is essentially concept art (filming for Rogue One hadn't even begun in April) was first leaked, so at this point it's not spoiling anything that isn't public knowledge.

The narration is an audio clip of Obi-Wan Kenobi from the original Star Wars, "For over a thousand generations the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times. Before the Empire." Hopefully, the fact that these clips are no longer being deleted means an official teaser is almost here—the first full-length trailer is due to appear before Captain America: Civil War in May.
