Rogue One (subtitled "A Star Wars Story"), is the first in a planned series of Star Wars spin-off films, originally referred to as "anthology films". 

Rogue One is set shortly before the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, and will follow a group of rebel spies as they attempt to steal the plans for the Galactic Empire's first Death Star superweapon.

Filming took place at Elstree Studies near London between August 2015 and February 2016, with reshoots taking place in June 2016. Alexandre Desplat, who previously worked with Edwards on Godzilla was originally slated to score the film, but due to production delays he was no longer available and was replaced by Michael Giacchino once he had finished up on Marvel's Doctor Strange.

Rogue One was the first big screen Star Wars film not to include an opening crawl, in contrast to the main series of movies.

Although Guy Henry voices Grand Moff Tarkin, Peter Cushing's likeness has been recreated through CGI face replacement.

The character Saw Gerrera is a veteran of the Clone Wars, and has been previously in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and had been mentioned in Star Wars Rebels and the novel Star Wars: Bloodline.

Genevieve O'Reilly and Jimmy Smits are both reprising their roles from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, although O'Reilly's appearance was relegated to the deleted scenes.
