Two new international “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” posters have hit the web. The Japanese and Korean posters, shared via the official “Star Wars” Twitter account, both focus on the film’s protagonist, Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso and her rebellion against the Empire.
The Korean poster is the darker of the two, a low shot of Jyn leading a team of armed rebels through a decidedly Imperial corridor that very much recalls the prison level in “Star Wars: A New Hope.” The second is brighter, and shows Jyn standing on the beach of the planet Jedha as the Death Star looms large in the sky above a line of clouds.
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is the first in a planned series of anthology films that are being released between and after the films in the current “Star Wars Trilogy.” It is a direct prequel to “Star Wars: A New Hope,” and tells the story of a group of rebels who steal the plans of the Death Star—the Empire’s massive battle station—thus triggering the events in that film.
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” hits theatres December 14, 2016. An untitled Han Solo anthology film follows on May 25, 2018. The date of the third film, rumored to be about bounty hunter Boba Fett has not been set.
