The plot of the first Star Wars spinoff has been revealed, and it sounds AWESOME

We finally know what the first "Star Wars" spinoff film, "Rogue One," will be about.

On the final day of "Star Wars Celebration," an annual gathering for "Star Wars" fans, director Gareth Edwards took the stage at a panel to reveal the plot of the 2016 film.

"A band of resistance fighters unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans in Star Wars anthology film, Rogue One."

According to Variety, the film will take place before "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope."

Edwards also showed off a brief teaser for the film along with concept art, which you can see below.

It sounds like it's the same concept art Disney CEO Bob Iger recently showed off at a shareholder meeting.
