    In a press statement by Disney the plot synopsis of this Star Wars spin-off is as follows: "[Rogue One] tells the story of how a group of unlikely heroes unite to undertake a daring and seemingly impossible mission to steal the plans for the Death Star."

    If you're not sure what on earth Rogue One is, let me explain. It's a Star Wars movie but it's not part of the new saga of films (beginning with Episode VII: The Force Awakens). It's a standalone film, set between Episodes III and Episode IV, focusing on the rebels who stole the plans for the first Death Star.

    We get our first glimpse at Felicity Jones essentially not putting up with any of your shit.

    You might recognise the guy from the top. He's Alistair Petrie, from The Night Manager and Sherlock.

    And we finally seem to know her name.

    Just got clarification from the SW team. Felicity Jones's character is spelt Jyn Erso #RogueOne #StarWars.

    She's REALLY not putting up with your shit.

    And she's also rebelling. Hence the name of the film.
