With December fast approaching and the force awakening in us all once again, more Rogue One: A Star Wars Story images have emerged. From the latest issue of Empire (via slashfilm), these new shots give us a better look at Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso and the menacing Director Orson Krennic, played by Ben Mendelsohn. Interestingly, Jyn can be seen donning new gear in one particular image, wearing goggles, a large trench-like coat and what appears to be a breathing apparatus. Also on show is Rebel Alliance pilot Bohdi Rook, played Riz Ahmed, scouting out an enemy stronghold and Jiang Wen’s Baze Malbus.
The observant Star Wars fans amongst you will notice that these images aren’t too different from ones previously released. However, they are different enough to warrant labelling them ‘new’ and in turn get us even more excited for the film’s release. Check out the images below:
In a little over a months time this year’s Force Friday will unveil a ton of new Rogue One details in the form of merchandise, much like it did for The Force Awakens. Come September 30th, action figures, t-shirts and books will line Disney stores across the globe and have Star Wars fans clamouring over this wave of goodies.
“From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.”
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to release on December 16th.
