It has been great a week for Star Wars news, due to Star Wars celebration taking place at Anaheim for a four day event and so much for the Star Wars future has been unveiled. Including the future of [Star Wars Rebels](series:965946) ,

, new comic line-ups and of course, the future of the movies.

A lot of rumours were circling a few months ago about what the plot of the new Star Wars spin off movie would be, one rumour being that a group of bounty hunters including Boba Fett would be hired by the The Rebel Alliance to steal the Death Star plans which would then lead into Star Wars IV: A New Hope (1977).

Today, this has been confirmed. Well, at least parts of it. The new Star Wars spin off has been confirmed at a recent Star Wars panel at celebration that Star Wars: Rogue One (2016) will tell the story of a group of resistance fighters who try and steal the Death star plans.

The story will be set between Star Wars Episodes 3 & 4, but is said to be closer to Episode 4. The news was revealed during a panel with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and “Rogue One” director Gareth Edwards.

This was also shown on Star Wars' twitter page today.

Star Wars Rogue One is set to release December 16th, 2016 and is currently set to star Oscar-nominated, Felicity Jones.
