Our bodies, as they are, are ready. For what? We’re unsure, but we just know it’s going to be great. Because anything to come out of the newly returned Star Wars movie universe has to be good, right? I mean just look at the fleeting glimpse we get of a brand spankin’ new shadowtrooper in this tease for the teaser for Rogue One: a Star Wars Story that’s coming our way on Thursday morning on Good Morning America.
We have our fingers and toes crossed that we’ll get more details about the characters and general premise beyond what we already know. Some reports have claimed that Felicity Jones’ character is named Jyn, a Rebel spy—and it’s a name with a lot of history in the no-longer-canon Expanded Universe—with Diego Luna’s character’s name allegedly being Cassein Willix, which sounds like a weird workout supplement.
The above teaser gives us literally nothing—beyond that slick-lookin’ shadowtrooper—but according to Making Star Wars, we’re also going to meet the latest trooper addition, dubbed the Hover Tank Trooper.

Looking at the incredibly short sneak peek, we know three things: there’s a fire, some destruction, and a bunch of shadow troopers hanging out around the fire. Can anyone make out what planet they might be on based on the architecture behind them?
Besides, is there anything more glee-inducing than seeing that beloved Star Wars logo pop up under anything?!
Rogue One hits theaters December 16, 2016.
And since we’re talkin’ Star Wars, why not see what’s going on with Episode VIII in these new images:
