At Star Wars Celebration a teaser video was shown that shared concept art for the upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One. It's described as being set after Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and before Episode IV: A New Hope. It's telling the tale of a "rogue band of resistance fighters who must unite to steal the Death Star plans." If you remember in the first movie Darth Vader boards Princess Leia's ship looking for plans. General Tagge warned about technical plans for the Death Star that had been stolen by the Rebellion saying, "If the Rebels have obtained a complete technical readout of this station it is possible, however unlikely, that they might find a weakness, and exploit it."
This movie is set up to tell the story of how the plans were stolen. They look pretty cool and take the franchise in a new direction.
