It won't hit the cinemas until December but the first glimpse of the spin-off from the epic space saga has appeared online

After the hugely positive response to The Force Awakens anticipation among fans for this, the first film in a new spin-off from the original series of films, will be higher than the twin suns of Tatooine.

There isn't much to go on here but we do know the film will take place in a time period just before A New Hope and that old foe the Death Star will feature.

Directed by Gareth Edwards and stuffed with British actors, it hits cinemas on December 16.
