galaxy, so do deeply troubling rumors. The Rebellion has

the worlds at the Empire’s mercy stand any chance, it
lies with an unlikely band of allies: Jyn Erso, a
resourceful young woman seeking vengeance; Cassian
Andor, a war-weary rebel commander; Bodhi Rook, a
defector from the Empire’s military; Chirrut Îmwe, a
blind holy man and his crack-shot companion, Baze
Malbus; and K-2SO, a deadly Imperial droid turned
against its former masters. In their hands rests the new
hope that could turn the tide toward a crucial Rebellion
victory—if only they can capture the plans to the
Empire’s new weapon.

their dangerous goal, the specter of their ultimate
enemy—a monstrous world unto itself—darkens the skies.
Waiting to herald the Empire’s brutal reign with a burst
of annihilation worthy of its dreaded name: Death Star.
