At a conference with shareholders today, Disney chairman Bob Iger revealed the first details of the mysterious Star Wars spin-off — the first step in an ambitious attempt to make the Star Wars universe as vast and sprawling as Marvel's Cinematic Universe.

The first Star Wars spin-off will be titled Rogue One, and will star Felicity Jones, the Oscar-nominated actress from last year's The Theory of Everything. Chris Weitz, the screenwriter behind Disney's live-action Cinderella, will pen the screenplay; Gareth Edwards, who helmed last year's Godzilla reboot, will direct.

Iger didn't reveal any details about Rogue One, but given the title, common speculation is that the story will somehow involve Rogue Squadron — the fleet of pilots led by Luke Skywalker during the Battle of Hoth in 1980's The Empire Strikes Back.

Rogue One will hit theaters in December 2016.

Moments ago at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, the first details of “Star Wars: Rogue One” were revealed along with a first look at the teaser for the spin-off film.

The movie is set between episodes 3 and 4 and centers around a mission to steal the Death Star plans. The panel that discussed the film featured directors Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank.

The brief teaser looked like a fly-over of the jungles of Yavin with a Tie Fighter flying into frame over the camera, which pans up to see the Death Star. The trailer has not surfaced online yet.

The official name for these films is not “spin-off” but rather “anthology films.”

During the panel, Edwards said he found it interesting that there are no Jedi during this period – that a group of people without magical powers have come together to join forces to save the galaxy. He wants the movie to “feel real.”

The world of this movie is not “black and white” or “good and evil,” leaving lots of grey area. Felicity Jones plays a Rebel soldier in the film. The movie will emphasize the “war” aspect of Star Wars.

The filmmakers have assembled a stellar cast, including Felicity Jones, nominated for an Academy Award for her leading role in The Theory of Everything; Diego Luna, who was featured in 2008’s Oscar-winning Milk and the critically acclaimed Killing Them Softly; Ben Mendelsohn, recently nominated for an Emmy for his leading role in Bloodline and co-starring in the upcoming Mississippi Grind; Donnie Yen, Hong Kong action star and martial artist who starred in Ip Man and Blade II; Jiang Wen, who co-wrote, produced , directed and starred in the award-winning Let the Bullets Fly and Devils on the Doorstep; Forest Whitaker, recently featured in the critically-acclaimed Lee Daniels’ The Butler and winner of an Academy Award for his leading role in 2006’s The Last King of Scotland; Mads Mikkelsen, who starred in The Hunt and was the memorable villain from 2006’s Casino Royale; Alan Tudyk, who plays a performance-capture character in Rogue One, stars in the soon-to-be-released Con Man series and Trumbo, which releases this November; and Riz Ahmed, who was recently featured in Nightcrawler and starred in the BAFTA-winning film Four Lions.

The film tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. It is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and is slated for a December 16, 2016 release.

“Rogue One takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope and will be a departure from the saga films but have elements that are familiar to the Star Wars universe,” says Kathleen Kennedy. “It goes into new territory, exploring the galactic struggle from a ground-war perspective while maintaining that essential Star Wars feel that fans have come to know. Gareth is such an innovative director and I’m so excited to be working with him and the extraordinary ensemble cast he’s selected for ‘Rogue One.’”
