Off the back of the new Star Wars: Rogue One trailer being released last week, Disney have now revealed the new character posters for the movie as well. There's not much else to say except that everyone from Jyn Erso to Orson Krennic seems to have the Death Star plans illuminated across their faces. Sadly, Vader doesn't get his own poster but these are still pretty cool.
Check out the new Star Wars: Rogue One posters (and every other poster that's been released so far) in the gallery above.
Directed by Gareth Edwards and starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, and Alan Tudyk, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is scheduled to open in UK and US cinemas on December 16, 2016.
Star Wars: Rogue One director Gareth Edwards appeared on The Star Wars Show to reveal a new poster, as well as teasing a new trailer for today. The new images follows the classical ensemble the series is so well know for. As noted by starwars.com the new poster covers just about covers everything:
"The poster features a massive looming Death Star and the haunting visage of Darth Vader within. They’re matched only by Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso and her band of Rebels below, while TIE strikers, TIE fighters, U-wings, and X-wings take flight. The bottom of the poster finds the striking image of stormtroopers in the waters of Scarif, the principal construction facility for the vast Imperial war machine, with AT-ACT walkers following close behind."
Obviously the big thing here is that menacing Vader looming over Erso Jyn's shoulder. There's also what looks like the Death Star plans creeping over her face - a doomy warning of what this whole film is about.
Since director Gareth Edwards first discussed his approach to Star Wars: Rogue One things looked good for the galactic spin-off. It wouldn't be a pointless copy of pre-existing Star Wars movies. Nope. This was being pegged as it's own thing - a proper war movie. Now obviously all of the films in the franchise are about war. It's right there in the title. But Rogue One's new international poster hones in on the darker side of what that really means.
There's something haunting about seeing a fallen rebel helmet, wedged into the sand, as a horde of imperial forces advance. It's tragic and beautiful all at the same time. Take a look in the gallery above.
Star Wars' official Twitter account unveiled two new international posters for Rogue One - which is a little over three months away from its cinematic debut - and both one-sheets put Felicity Jones' Jyn Erso in the limelight. Check them out in the gallery above...
Both posters are relatively simple when it comes to design, but the Japanese one-sheet in particular - which shows Jones' Erso with the Death Star looming in the background - does a good job of blending the new with the familiar, something which the film itself is attempting to do. We'll find out whether or not it succeeds in December.
The panel for Star Wars: Rogue One took place earlier today, and among the reveals was a brand new poster for the film. The gorgeous one-sheet - which shows the rebel forces battling stormtroopers while the Death Star looms large in the sky - is notably bright, which is mildly surprising when you consider the grim war tone that Rogue One is apparently going for. We'll see if the new trailer follows suit when it lands online. Until then, you can check out the new poster - along with all the other images from the film - in the gallery above.
