In the weeks leading up to the release of the much-anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars Story we have been receiving a barrage of news, including the fantastic final trailer from last week. Today it’s an array of pictures, and some new character posters.
The photos are more specifically a series of online trading cards released on the Star Wars Card Trader app, on the protagonists of the movie, like Jyn Erso and her team, some Jedha pilgrims, and lesser known rebels, like an unnamed X-Wing pilot, and a new kind of Mon Calamari. There are also ones on the Stormtroopers , who return to their original A New Hope design. Check them out:
There were also some new posters released today on social media, that focus on the main characters of the film. Though in a fairly new design, it still fits with the theme and tone the movie appears to be following. Each character featured has the plans for the death star reflected on their faces, with a caption for all of them.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
