EVERYONE STAY CALM. The newest trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was released on Thursday. It's a beautiful day in the galaxy.

Rogue One is the first in a series of Star Wars standalone films. That means it's not a direct continuation of the narrative involving Luke Skywalker and company, but is a different story from the same universe. The film takes place in between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope on the Star Wars timeline.

The story is about the Rebel Alliance's attempt to steal the plans to the first Death Star (an event that was referenced in A New Hope). Plus, it's continuing the recent trend of badass female leads in Star Wars films. In other words, it's going to be awesome.

Rogue One comes to theaters on December 16. What do you mean we have to wait two more months?!
