Star Wars Celebration is currently taking place in the U.K. and there's an exhibit on the convention room floor that shows off several of the costumes, vehicles, and other props that were used in the making of the highly anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Thanks to /Film we have some photos for you to check out featuring these things, and each one comes along with a description that provides some additional information on certain aspects of the film.
There's a lot of incredibly cool stuff to check out here that would be so awesome to actually see in person! The costumes look so freakin' awesome and the vehicle designs are just beautiful. The new trailer for Rogue One is set to be released sometime today so stay tuned for that!
Here are the photos and details:
Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones)
Putting behind a checkered past by lending her skills to a greater cause, Jyn Erso is impetuous, defiant, and eager to bring the battle to the Empire. Used to operating alone, she finds higher purpose by taking on a desperate mission for the Rebel Alliance.
Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen)
The harsh reality of his Imperial-occupied home world has hardened Baze Malbus into a pragmatic soldier and a crack shot with his heavy repeater cannon. Baze has a bravado that provides a marked contrast to the spiritual centeredness of his best friend and moral compass, Chirrut Îmwe.
Chirrut Îmwe (Donnie Yen)
Deeply spiritual, Chirrut Îmwe believes all living things are connected through the Force. His sightless eyes do not prevent him from being a highly skilled warrior. Though he lacks Force abilities, this warrior monk has rigorously honed his bodies through intense physical and mental discipline.
Ct. Cassian Andor (Diego Luna)
An accomplished Alliance Intelligence officer with combat field experience, Captain Cassian Andor commands respect from his Rebel troops with his ability to keep a cool head under fire and complete his missions with minimal resources.
A former Imperial pilot, Bodhi has strong piloting and technical skills that he will put to use for the Rebellion. Ever practical, but highly anxious, Bodhi must gather his courage to bring the battle to the Empire.
Dir. Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn)
As director of Advanced Weapons Research for the Imperial military, Orson Krennic is obsessed with the completion of the long-delayed Death Star project. A cruel but brilliant man, Krennic has staked his reputation on the delivery of the functional battle station to the Emperor.
Stormtroopers are the faceless legions of soldiers serving the Galactic Empire. Encased in white armor, stormtroopers are loyal Imperials who undergo rigorous training that strips them of any sense of individuality.
Specialist stormtroopers stationed at the top secret Imperial military headquarters, Shoretroopers patrol the beaches and bunkers of the planetary facility.
Imperial Death Trooper
The elite soldiers of Imperial Intelligence, Death Troopers are encased in specialized stormtrooper armor with a dark, ominous gleam. These soldiers serve as bodyguards and enforcers for Director Krennic, a highly placed officer within the Advanced Weapons Research division of the Empire.
Imperial AT-ACT Cargo Walker
A larger version of the standard combat AT-AT, the AT-ACT walker features a dedicated cargo bed for the transportation of heavy building materials or combat munitions. It was deployed at major Imperial construction projects, such as shipyards and sprawling research installations.
A streamlined variant of the classic TIE fighter design, the TIE striker is designed for atmospheric patrols over important Imperial ground-based installations. The versatile design can also soar in space, where it can accompany traditional TIE fighters in chasing down enemy starships.
The Death Star is the Empire’s ultimate weapon: a moon-sized space station with a superlaser capable of destroying an entire planet. The brainchild of Grand Moff Tarkin, the Death Star nears completion — and once ready, will serve as the Emperor’s principal means of spreading fear throughout the galaxy.
Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle
With its starkly geometric hull shape and folding bat-like wings, the approach of Delta-class T-3c shuttle is an imposing sight. Once it lands and deploys its passengers — the cruel Director Krennic and his squad of elite troopers, all sense of dread proves extremely warranted.
