ROGUE ONE: THE RETURN OF BAIL ORGANA!


No matter how large or small his role may ultimately prove to be in ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, the return of Jimmy Smits as one of the Rebels' key under the radar leader's in Senator Bail Organa is most welcome- like the appearance of Mon Mothma, the continued fusing of Prequel and Classic Trilogies together onscreen is most satisfying.

But if Bail's there, could his adopted daughter and a familiar R2 unit also be present?

ROGUE ONE: STORMIN' STORMTROOPERS!

Imperial Stormtroopers out in force on the shores of Scarif, in ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY.

501st-ers and STAR WARS fans worldwide who love the classic Imperial Stormtroopers will surely be in Seventh Heaven with next week's release of ROGUE ONE. Just from the trailers alone, I don't think we've ever seen so many assembled in one film and operating in so many environments. Though keeping to the classic and best design from the original 1977 film, John Knoll and the ILM team have additionally made some subtle visual improvements to the masks.

COMING SOON: 'THE ART OF ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY'


Screenings of early ROGUE ONE footage have drawn great critical plaudits, noting the impressive way the filmmakers have brought artistic freshness to the STAR WARS universe alongside many visual tributes and upgrades to classic designs from the era of Luke Skywalker. ABRAMS BOOKS eagerly awaited 'Art of' book on the new film, containing 300 illustrations, will surely be a fascinating and compelling guide as to how it all came together.

More book info:

This book is a visual chronicle of the Lucasfilm art department’s creation of new worlds, unforgettable characters, and newly imagined droids, vehicles, and weapons for the first movie in the Star Wars Story series—Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In the same format and style as Abrams’ The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the book gives readers unprecedented access to hundreds of concept paintings, sketches, storyboards, matte paintings, and character, costume, and vehicle designs. The Art of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will stand as the definitive guide to the artwork and imagination behind the newest chapter in the Star Wars franchise and will delight Star Wars fans and cineastes for decades to come.

Directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla, Monsters), with production design by Doug Chiang and Neil Lamont, Rogue One chronicles the adventures of a Rebel cell tasked with a desperate mission: to steal the plans for the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the Emperor’s rule. The all-star cast includes Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Jiang Wen, and Donnie Yen.
