It was also announced that Alan Tudyk (Firefly; Con Man) will portray a performance-captured character in Rogue One. This won’t be his first time with a role like this. He previously played the robot Sonny in the movie I, Robot.

Gareth Edwards will direct the film that takes place between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope – episodes 3 and 4 in the series – and will explore the galactic struggle from a ground-war perspective, according to Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy.

Star Wars: Rogue One will be released on December 16, 2016.
