Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Clip Reveals First Bail Organa Footage

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has quickly become the big blockbuster to see this holiday season, and as the official release date approaches, we're seeing more and more promotional material from the film.

Today's clip is worth distinction because it features an appearance by Sons of Anarchy star Jimmy Smits as Bail Organa, the senator from the Star Wars prequel trilogy who goes on to become Princess Leia's adoptive father.

Needless to say: If you want to preserve the experience of seeing Rogue One in theaters, then this is about the time to stop watching these promos!

From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is directed by Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker. Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel are producing, with John Knoll and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers.
