May the Force be with us! As part of this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration Europe, a new behind-the-scenes video for director Gareth Edward’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has been unleashed.

The celebration of all things Star Wars is currently in full swing in London, and this nearly 3-minute reel, unveiled during this morning’s presentation, features a cool BTS look at the movie, including the filming of action-packed scenes, some cast and crew interviews, and a peek at the new aliens, worlds, stormtroopers, and vehicles featured in the new movie set in a galaxy far, far away.

Taking place before the events of A New Hope, Rogue One tells the story of a group of brave resistance fighters banding together to steal the plans for the Galactic Empire’s new Death Star. The movie stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and Riz Ahmed. James Earl Jones has also been confirmed to return as the voice as Darth Vader. Check out all the wonderful Star Wars goodness below:
