Outside of the amazing trailer we got a while back, information regarding Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has been scarce. Thankfully, a new huge leak has revealed a plethora of new photos and information about the characters and vehicles we'll be seeing in the film. Florian at Jedi Bibliothek recently spotted a listing on Edelweiss for the "Rogue One: The Official Story Guide" which revealed an official description of the book as well as several pages from it. The description reads:
"The official companion book to fall’s most anticipated release of Star Wars Rogue One. Never-before-seen interviews, images and teasers from this major motion picture. Detailed, in-depth character profiles, iconic vehicles, weaponry and droids."
"Lucas Films proudly presents the official companion book to this fall’s most anticipated release of Star Wars Rogue One. Featuring never-before-seen interviews, images and teasers from this major motion picture. Experience all the thrills with detailed, in-depth character profiles, iconic vehicles, weaponry and droids you've been looking for. Featuring 160 pages of action-packed photos and content, this official Lucasfilm collector's book is a must-have for every Star Wars fan."
Let's jump into the pages and see what was revealed! Of course, some of this could be considered spoilers, so if you don't want to know anything about Rogue One stop reading now. This is your official SPOILER ALERT.
First off, we have the cover, which is stunning on its own and give us our first clear look at our heroes, along with several Starfighters in the background:
Next, we have more awesome imagery which reveals even more characters and ships. The right page gives us the names and descriptions of eight of the Rebel heroes. While the descriptions are difficult to read(from what I can tell, they don't reveal much), we were able to glean the characters names and match (some of) them to the actors that play them. And they are:
- Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones)
- Cassian Andor (Diego Luna)
- Baze (Jiang Wen)
- Enforcer Droid K-250 (Alan Tudyk)
- Bodhi (Riz Ahmed)
- Chirrut (Donnie Yen)
The next page gives us a brand new look at the Imperial Hover Tank and Stormtroopers that we saw in the trailer:
Next up, we get a detailed schematic of the Death Star itself:
The following page gives us our first look at a brand new Starfighter: The TIE Striker:
A new Rebel Starfigher is also revealed! Our friends at Making Star Wars believes this fighter is called a "U-Wing":
On two other pages we get a look at what appears to be an AT-AT, but is actually called an "AT-ACT." Making Star Wars speculates that it could stand for "All-Terrain Armored Carrier Transport."
Another page appears to confirm that Ben Mendelsohn will be portraying Director Krennic, the Imperial character dressed in white with a cape we previously saw in the trailer. We also get a new look at the new "Death Troopers" as well:
We also get more detailed looks at the Enforcer Droid K-250:
And last, but certainly not least, we get some beautiful artwork featuring the heroes, villians, Starfighters and more surrounding the ominous helmet of Darth Vader. This is the first we've seen of Vader related to Rogue One, thus seemingly confirming previous speculation and rumors that the Dark Lord will making an appearance in this film:
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16th!
