Rogue One Featurette

"May the force be with us." Wow. Get ready to geek out! Star Wars Celebration is happening in London this weekend, and they presentation for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just wrapped up. During the panel, a new poster (with the Death Star) and a making-of featurette were revealed and oh my are they awesome. The video shows tons of behind-the-scenes footage, including director Gareth Edwards talking about working on this as well as some incredible shots of practical action and various creatures and characters. Felicity Jones stars as Jyn Erso, along with Ben Mendelsohn, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Donnie Yen, Diego Luna and Forest Whitaker. I'm so excited to dive deeper into this world again, and this is an exhilarating video. A totally new story that looks as incredible as the rest of the saga.

Up first, here's the latest poster for Rogue One featuring the Death Star looming in the background:

You can also see the first teaser trailer here, for a glimpse at even more exciting footage from Rogue One.

"Rogue One takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope and will be a departure from the saga films but have elements that are familiar to the Star Wars universe," says Kathleen Kennedy. Rogue One tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. It's being directed by English filmmaker Gareth Edwards, of the movies Monsters and Godzilla previously. The screenplay is credited to Chris Weitz (About a Boy, The Golden Compass, Cinderella) based on a story by John Knoll and Gary Whitta. Disney will release Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in theaters everywhere starting December 16th, 2016 this year. For even more Star Wars updates, click here. You in?

        Also, I love Star Wars and think this will be good (just thought it funny with Stormtroopers cruising around a beach). Judging your comments above it looks like you're a little unhappy with anyone saying anything negative about it...opposing opinions are definitely moronic ones huh?
    How could any one really hate on this?! They are giving us everything we wanted.

      Are people hating on it? I thought most people are pretty optimistic about it.
  • Bob
    Stoked for the movie but that poster looks like a fan job...some really lousy compositing at the just looks bad
    • eris
      The bottom does look odd, but come on that Death Star!
      • Let's hope someone will blow out this death star once for all. Bringing it in each movie is becoming annoying.
        • michael interbartolo
          You do realize this death is the one like eventually blows up in the battle of Yavin
          • Yeah, I know. It's just I am starting to be fed up by this Death Star plot. The galaxy is wide enough to explore other lores.
    • Absolutely hate that poster on so many levels. Thankfully the behind the scenes teaser is jaw dropping. SO much gorgeous McQuarrie-esque design throughout. Absolutely perfect... PLEASE MAKE A NEW POSTER! 😉

    • Star Wars: Bring your Kessel Ring baby. I wanna marry you in 20 Parsecs.
