STAR WARS fans have been celebrating the triumphant return of their beloved universe a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (sorry, had to) since last December’s release of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, and with the recent wrapping of production on the upcoming EPISODE VIII, attention is also turning to the initial “anthology” movie, ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY. Promising a glimpse of 1977 STAR WARS designs and characters – including none other than Darth Vader himself! – the film follows Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and others in the untold tale of how the Rebels obtained the blueprints for the dreaded Death Star. The events of the film will take place just prior to the first STAR WARS, dovetailing into the beginning of the saga as we remember it.
Now, thanks to this weekend’s huge Star Wars Celebration, we have even more insight into ROGUE ONE thanks to a new poster and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the movie. Watch the video below, marvel at the might of the Empire in the ominous poster, and we’ll see you at the theater when ROGUE ONE comes to theaters December 16, 2016!
