Welcome back to the galaxy far, far away.

The trailer for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," the first spinoff film in the "Star Wars" film franchise, debuted on ABC'south "Excellent Morning America" Thursday.

With the brief teaser, Disney (DIS) gave fans the first glimpse of the new "Star Wars" film starring Felicity Jones.

It takes space in the universe of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo. But "Rogue One" is a bit different than you average "Star Wars" film.

The film is a spinoff rather than a continuation of the space story involving the Skywalker family. It hits theaters December sixteen and is set just before the plot of the one thousand nine hundred seventy-seven "Star Wars" and follows a grouping of rebels trying to thieve plans to the Death Star.

"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" premiered its first teaser trailer on ABC'south "Excellent Morning America" on Thursday morning.

The trailer starts with hints of John Williams' well-known score, while introducing a war-weary rebellion and Jones' rash and aggressive main character.

"This is a rebellion, isn't it?" Jones' character asks. "I rebel."

"Rogue One" looks to rack up a huge box office, but from the looks of the trailer, it appears to be darker than what fans are used to.

This would stay in line with director Gareth Edwards' description of "Rogue One" as a war film.

The spinoff is the first "Star Wars" film to be released by Disney since December'south hugely successful "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

"Force Awakens," the seventh film in the original franchise, was one of the biggest blockbusters ever. The film, starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Harrison Ford, made over $2.06 billion worldwide.
