Video: 'Rogue One' Director Gareth Edwards Dresses As Stormtrooper to Ask a Question at #SWCE

By: Dominic Jones

At Star Wars Celebration there are so many cosplayers and fans in costume as their favorite characters you never know who might be beneath the helmet.  It could the stars of the sequel trilogy, the young Han Solo, or even the director of the next Star Wars film.  Last weekend, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story director Gareth Edwards donned a stormtrooper costume and took to walking the floor at the ExCeL centre in London where Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 was taking place.  Edwards suited up and headed over to the "The Art of The Force Awakens" which was taking place on the Galaxy stage.  Many of the concept artists on the panel had also worked Rogue One, so Edwards grabbed the mic to ask a question and have some fun with his crew.  Check out the video below,

Gareth Edwards wasn't the only celebrity walking the floor in disguise at Celebration Europe.  Alden Ehrenreich took a stroll around the floor in a stormtrooper mask just hours before he was unveilled as the new Han Solo.  This follows in the footsteps of John Boyega and Daisy Ridley (Finn and Rey) who walked the floor at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim last April.
