Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie billboards...

Last year Star Wars: The Force Awakens charted new territory thirty years after the events of Return of the Jedi with both familiar and new faces to help restart the sci-fi film franchise, this December however we'll be transported back in time to before Episode IV: A New Hope courtesy of Rogue One

In this new standalone Star Wars story prequel, we'll finally find out how the Rebellion managed to get the plans to the Empire's plant-killing Death Star that 'Luke Skywalker' blew to smithereens back in 1977.

British actress Felicity Jones plays the defiant heroine, 'Jyn Erso', who is reluctantly drafted by the Rebels to lead a ragtag (and diverse) group of fighters to obtain the essential blueprints for the deadly weapon.

Not only will the film introduce a whole new band of characters and droids, but it'll also tap into a whole font of nostalgia from the original film trilogy and feature expanded roles for the likes of 'Mon Mothma', 'Bail Organa' and 'Darth Vader' himself (and we're sure it'll offer more than a few surprises too).

Not only will we get to see some familiar faces, but fans will also be able to enjoy some classic aliens, starships, vehicles and yes, the Empire's forces in their original Stormtrooper armour.

Felicity Jones will be joined in her risky mission in director Gareth Edwards grittier film by the likes of Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker, Jiang Wen, Donnie Yen and Alan Tudyk (as the voice of new droid K-2SO), whilst Mads Mikkelsen will star as Jyn's distant father and Ben Mendelsohn will play the film's main Imperial villain.

Fans of a galaxy far, far away can also enjoy all these Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie billboards from around this time last year.

With one-off origin stories in the works for other popular Star Wars characters like 'Han Solo' (to be played by Aldren Ehrenreich, with Donald Glover cast as a young 'Lando Calrissian'), let's hope that Rogue One is a spectacular and worthwhile addition to the epic space opera universe created by George Lucas.

May be the Force be with us this holiday season, it's time to rebel.

The two billboards show Stormtroopers facing off against Jyn's ragtag bunch along a beach shoreline, making for a dramatic visual for passing traffic.
