By: Benjamin Hart

While we've been bombarded with a plethora of trailers and TV spots for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story recently, we've also been treated to plenty of photos from the film as well. A brand new batch of stills from Rogue One comes to us via our friends at Furious Fanboys.

Reportedly, a press junket for Rogue One was recently held in France and several new images were released by Lucasfilm. While some have been previously seen, others are completely new, and all can be viewed in extra high quality. Be sure to click on them all to see the larger versions of the photos below:

Additionally, Star Wars News Net alerted us to some updates to the official Star Wars Databank on A collection of new Databank entries for various characters, ships and locations from Rogue One were added, many of which include never before seen images and info about the film. You can check out some highlights from the updates below:

"The efforts of the Rebellion have drawn warriors from across the galaxy, fighting to liberate their homes and free their people from the oppression of the Empire. Though Bistan wants to ensure the freedom of fellow lakaru, truth is, he’d rather fight no matter what, relishing the thrill of action."

"An amphibious Drabata, the fierce commando Pao charges into battle with the Empire while shouting a full-throated battle cry of “Sa´kalla!” as is his custom. He joins the Rogue One team on its historic mission to secure the Death Star plans."

"Moroff seeks out combat zones in the galaxy to sell his brawn and firepower to anyone who might need it. Not interested in the details of the Empire versus rebels conflict, the mighty Gigoran mercenary figures there’s money to be made for a towering heavy gunner of great strength."

"The Galactic Empire relies on astromech droids to maintain its machinery, but unlike the Rebel Alliance, Imperial technicians do not grant their droids independence and subject them to frequent memory wipes to keep them subservient."

"Imperial installations, whether space-bound or ground-based, buzz with activity and vehicular traffic. Skilled ground crews sort through this would-be chaos and see to the smooth operation of Imperial craft through regular maintenance."

"Edrio Two Tubes is a mercenary pilot who flies alongside his eggmate, Benthic. They share the nickname derived from the breathing apparatus that allows Tognath physiology to process oxygen atmospheres. Edrio’s native world of Yar Togna was conquered and occupied by the Empire, forcing him to flee as a refugee. With a desire to strike back at the Empire, Edrio and Benthic have allied with Saw Gerrera."

"A streamlined variant of the classic TIE fighter design, the TIE striker is designed for atmospheric patrols over important Imperial ground-based installations."

"With its starkly geometric hull shape and bat-like wings, the approach of Delta-class T-3c shuttle is an imposing sight. Once it lands and deploys its passengers – the cruel director Krennic and his squad of elite troopers, all sense of dread proves extremely warranted."
