Star Wars Celebration takes place in London this July, and now a new piece of artwork has been revealed which puts the spotlight on characters from both Rogue One and next year’s Episode VIII. It’s the former we’re most interested in though, especially as Rey, Finn, Poe, Kylo Ren, and Luke Skywalker are all suited up in their gear from The Force Awakens.
The biggest surprise in the poster below is yet another type of Stormtrooper who has been identified as a Shore Trooper (who is presumably deployed in beach type locations based on the name). The walkers from the Rogue One trailer have now been identified as AT-ACTs – an early version of the AT-AT’s? – and that stands for “All Terrain Armored Cargo Transport.”
Set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, the plot of Rogue One revolves around a band of resistance fighters unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans, and a very impressive cast has been assembled made up of names like Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, and Riz Ahmed. The movie is set to be released on December 16th.
