The galaxy is about to get a lot less far, far away.

The world was just given new hope with the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" trailer, and now we also know details of the first stand-alone film, "Star Wars: Rogue One." The info came courtesy of Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy and director Gareth Edwards on Sunday at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California.

The film will reportedly be a prequel to "New Hope" and involve a rebel plot to steal plans for the Death Star, which the "Star Wars" Twitter account confirmed:

Edwards also revealed that the plot would follow ordinary people who don't necessarily have the ability to use The Force.

A teaser, which appeared to be shown at the event, already leaked online, but it has yet to be officially released. "Rogue One" is set to hit theaters on Dec. 16, 2016.

Another "Star Wars" film, which will be directed by Josh Trank, remains untitled; however, it is set for release in 2018.
