EW just keeps the Rogue One hits coming. Their intimidating Rogue One coverage continues with these breathtaking new images from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story! We’re granted additional images of Jyn, Baze, Chirrut, Bodhi Rook and Director Orson Krennic, as well as Stormtroopers, Deathtroopers, and a tropical-looking planet hosting landscape-rending battles. That last bit was deserving of a little explanation compliments of Director Gareth Edwards.
“There’s this sort of South Pacific, tropical paradise planet that subconsciously leads into some of the imagery associated with World War II,” Edwards explains. “We went to lots of different places around the world, and one of them was the Maldives. When you’re shooting Stormtroopers in paradise, you have the best job in the world, you know? You can’t really deny it at that point.”
Okay, enough with this prefatory prevaricating; let’s hit the pics!
Star Wars: Rogue One hits the Death Star on December 16th, 2016 and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and Jonathan Aris.
