A brand new movie poster for the upcoming “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” film has just been revealed at the Star Wars Celebration Europe event.
The poster doesn’t offer up much new info, but it does have a rendering of that awesome beachfront battle that appeared in the first teaser for the film. A tagline up top, “A Rebellion Built On Hope”, is a nice play on the next move in the Star Wars timeline, “A New Hope”. And is the Death Star really that close to the battleground or is this movie poster just featuring it as a looming threat to the Rebellion?
Additionally, director Gareth Jones and producer Kathleen Kennedy revealed a behind-the-scenes look at the heavily-anticipated film at the panel along with stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen, and Forest Whitaker. Jones also revealed that George Lucas visited the set and gave some constructive feedback, along with some sarcastic humor, as well. There was also confirmation from Jones that Darth Vader will indeed be making an appearance in the film, with James Earl Jones providing his voice once again.
Star Wars fans are also anticipating a new Rogue One trailer that’s been rumored to arrive soon, so keep it here at ITM for any further updates on that and everything else coming out of Star Wars Celebration! Fans can also watch the live stream of the event on the official Star Wars Youtube channel.
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is in theaters December 16, 2016!
