"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" is set to debut this December, and this new poster provides a detailed look at some of the new characters, technology and Stormtroopers in the film.
This poster was released today for the annual Star Wars Celebration Europe, an annual "Star Wars"-themed event which takes place July 15 - 17 in London. The poster was debuted on the "Star Wars Show" today, but Slash Film was able to get a high resolution version of the poster.
The poster features five main characters from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens:" Rey, Finn, Kylo Ren, Luke Skywalker, and Poe Dameron. It also features actors Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, and Donnie Yen who all star in "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story."
If you look closely you can also see three new elements from "Rogue One:" new Stormtroopers, AT-AT walkers, and a squad of Troopers. According to Slash Film, these Stormtroopers are actually called Shoretroopers, and they can be seen in action on the beach in the "Rogue One" trailer. The AT-AT-like machine is actually an AT-ACT, which stands for All Terrain Armored Cargo Transport. The collection of black Stormtroopers on the poster are also called a Death Squad. It's hard to say why the theft of the Death Star plans lead the cast of "Rogue One" to a beach head battle, but more plot details should be revealed as we get closer to the film's release date.
"Rogue One" hits theaters on December 16.
