May the Force be with the newest cast members of the Star Wars saga.

As the latest installment in the Star Wars franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be the first so-called anthology film in the saga’s history.

In the newest outing, a maverick band of rebel fighters embark on a desperate mission to steal the plans for the Death Star before the Emperor can crush the rebellion – the very same plans Princess Leia would end up hiding in R2-D2 at the beginning of Star Wars: A New Hope.

Meet the cast who’ll be bringing that story to life in Rogue One:
