We're only two months away from the latest installment of the Star Wars series.

The last trailer for Disney's standalone Star Wars film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was released on Thursday, and it definitely delivers on the drama. Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker, and Diego Luna star in the movie, which sees the Rebellion as the "last hope" to push back against the Empire.

The events of Rogue One take place in between the first two Star Wars trilogies, after the events of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and before Episode IV: A New Hope. It's a time when the Jedi were believed to be extinct, so the rebels are on their own battling the Empire.

"We have hope -- rebellions are built on hope," Jones' character, Jyn Erso, says.

"Save the rebellion, save the dream," Whitaker's character, Saw Gerrera, later cries.

As with previous Star Wars film, details on Rogue One have remained pretty stark. The film revolves around the Rebellion attempting to steal the plans to the Death Star, which of course becomes the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. Jyn's father is critical to the development of the weapon, and Jyn is determined to find him and disarm the space station.

Rogue One hits theaters on Dec. 16.
