With Star Wars: The Force Awakens now out in theatres and the general public embracing it with open arms, all eyes are on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story to see what the next instalment in the beloved franchise can deliver.
We still don’t know a whole lot about the highly-anticipated spinoff, but that could all change very soon, as reports are surfacing that point to the first trailer for Gareth Edwards’ film arriving this Spring with Captain America: Civil War. While unconfirmed at this point, it certainly makes sense, as both movies belong to the House of Mouse, so a bit of cross-marketing could be a smart idea.

If the trailer does indeed arrive with Cap’s next adventure, then you can expect it to debut online several days before, which means we could be getting our first bit of footage from Rogue One during the first week of May. Exciting, eh?
Of course, that still seems like a long ways away, and it technically is, but I’m sure Disney will continue to feed us promo material over the next several months to whet our appetites.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be directed by Gareth Edward and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Johanthan Aris, and Peter Cushing. It’s scheduled for release on December 16th, 2016.
