'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Reveals Early Concept Art

As Star Wars Celebration Europe unfolds, more and more info is being revealed about the upcoming slate of "Star Wars" films. Plenty of those reveals focused on this year's "Star Wars" film, the anthology adventure "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story." Among the many reveals made during Celebration's "Rogue One" panel, which also included a new poster behind-the-scenes video and was a piece of concept art for the Gareth Edwards-directed film; to be more specific, it's the first piece of concept art for the film.

Revealed during the panel and then shared on Twitter by Yahoo Movies, the piece of art -- seen above -- depicts the film's ragtag group of Rebel soldiers.

Set outside of the main sequel trilogy that began with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Rogue One” is set just before 1977’s “Star Wars” and details the Rebel plot to steal the Death Star plans from the Empire. Directed by Gareth Edwards (“Godzilla,” “Monsters”) from a script by Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz, “Rogue One” stars Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna and Riz Ahmed.

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” opens December 16.
