official synopsis

Quote:
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is directed by Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, with Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker. Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel are producing, with John Knoll and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in U.S. theaters on December 16, 2016.

It's my understanding that they are setting up Rogue One as a "standalone" film in the Star Wars universe, but I wonder whether any of the characters might show up again in the main storyline of the upcoming movies (if they prove to be popular).

Donnie Yen might. He's well established in Asian countries at this point, and his Western audience knows him from the Ip Man movies.

‘Han Solo’ Film Casting Young Lando Calrissian (Exclusive)

Han Solo is getting a gambling buddy — his standalone “Star Wars” spinoff film is casting a young Lando Calrissian.

Fans have speculated about which of the characters from Solo’s complicated past might turn up in “Han Solo,” and now we know at least one. The Cloud City cassanova was originally played by Billy Dee Williams, and the current code name in casting circles for young Lando is “Chance” — perhaps a reference to the character’s appreciation of cards and dice.

Though we met Lando in “The Empire Strikes Back” — in which Darth Vader forced him to betray Han, Leia, Chewbacca and C-3PO when they turned up at Cloud City — he has a long history with Solo that we may see parts of in the new standalone film. Lando famously lost the Millennium Falcon to Solo in a game called sabacc — though he got to fly it again in “Return of the Jedi.”

I can get behind that.

I hope Tarkin is a badass in the movie - like he is in the books.

Looks like they created that Director Kendric (?) character to replace him (whyever).

Nah.

All the good guys are gonna die.

The last ones by Vadar entering their getaway ship at the end. Killing Jyn just moments after she gets in range to transmit the plans to Leia's ship.
