SWCE 2016: Star Wars: Rogue One Concept Art Revealed

Bespin refugee - July 15, 2016

This concept art for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," was revealed at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016.

Conceived as the first in a series of standalone films set within the "Star Wars" universe, "Rogue One" tells the legendary story of how a small group of Rebel spies stole the secret plans to the Death Star, which was originally mentioned in 1977 during the opening crawl of "Star Wars: A New Hope."

Featuring an international and diverse cast of actors, Oscar-nominated Felicity Jones plays the film's central hero: Jyn Erso. She's a strong-willed renegade who is recruited by the Rebel Alliance to join a secret mission led by Captain Cassian Andor.

Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Riz Ahmed are playing the rest of the rebel fighters. Meanwhile recent Emmy-nominated actor Ben Mendelsohn co-stars as the villainous Imperial Officer, Director Orson Krennic.

Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker also appears in the film as rebel veteran Saw Gerrera, a character that first appeared in animation form in the series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars." Other cast members include Mads Mikkelsen as Jyn's father, Galen Erso, who's a brilliant engineer while Alan Tudyk is providing the motion-capture and voice of rebel droid K-2SO. (Speaking of voice work, James Earl Jones will reprise the distinctive and iconic voice of Darth Vader for a cameo appearance.)

Rogue One stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Riz Ahmed, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Genevieve O'Reilly, Alistair Petrie, Jonathan Aris, Valene Kane

Release: December 16th, 2016
