After a short teaser that aired earlier this week the full trailer for rogue one was released during the Rio Olympics.

FOX's Michelle Pollino reports:

Tells the tale leading up to the 1977 'Star Wars' film and depicts the events laid out in that film's opening crawl: "Rebel Spaceships", striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil galactic empire.

(Rogue One) "The world is coming undone, imperial flags reign across the galaxy."

What makes the 'Star Wars' franchise so appealing is the mix of creatures, droids and humans coming together to fight those evil forces and in this film, one familiar face is back.

'Rogue One' opens nationwide this December.
