On the planet Scarif, she and the freedom fighters, including a blind warrior and a deadpan droid, attempt to steal plans for the Death Star, a battle station capable of destroying entire worlds, which was designed by her father on behalf of the Empire. However, the Rebels face tough competition from Imperial warlord Orson Krennic and shadowy forces, including Darth Vader, who will come to play a major part in the rise of the Empire. Star Wars prequel set before the events of A New Hope, starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna and Ben Mendelsohn
