New Rogue One images and details plus Kathleen Kennedy on Rogue Two
We're a little over 2 weeks away from a new STAR WARS movie! I'll give you a moment to let that sink in, but in the meantime, we have some new images from the Star Wars Databank (thanks for the head's up, Star Wars News Net) that gives us a closer look at a lot of the aliens we can expect to see in ROGUE ONE. Check 'em out!
The efforts of the Rebellion have drawn warriors from across the galaxy, fighting to liberate their homes and free their people from the oppression of the Empire. Though Bistan wants to ensure the freedom of fellow lakaru, truth is, he’d rather fight no matter what, relishing the thrill of action.
Moroff seeks out combat zones in the galaxy to sell his brawn and firepower to anyone who might need it. Not interested in the details of the Empire versus rebels conflict, the mighty Gigoran mercenary figures there’s money to be made for a towering heavy gunner of great strength.
An amphibious Drabata, the fierce commando Pao charges into battle with the Empire while shouting a full-throated battle cry of “Sa´kalla!” as is his custom. He joins the Rogue One team on its historic mission to secure the Death Star plans.
Edrio Two Tubes
Edrio Two Tubes is a mercenary pilot who flies alongside his eggmate, Benthic. They share the nickname derived from the breathing apparatus that allows Tognath physiology to process oxygen atmospheres. Edrio’s native world of Yar Togna was conquered and occupied by the Empire, forcing him to flee as a refugee. With a desire to strike back at the Empire, Edrio and Benthic have allied with Saw Gerrera.
A streamlined variant of the classic TIE fighter design, the TIE striker is designed for atmospheric patrols over important Imperial ground-based installations.
Krennic's Imperial Shuttle
With its starkly geometric hull shape and 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.
Specialist stormtroopers stationed at the top secret Imperial military headquarters on Scarif, Shoretroopers patrol the beaches and bunkers of the planetary facility.
Imperial Ground Crew
Imperial installations, whether space-bound or ground-based, buzz with activity and vehicular traffic. Skilled ground crews sort through this would-be chaos and see to the smooth operation of Imperial craft through regular maintenance.
The Galactic Empire relies on astromech droids to maintain its machinery, but unlike the Rebel Alliance, Imperial technicians do not grant their droids independence and subject them to frequent memory wipes to keep them subservient.
The folks over at Prensaimperial got their hands on a digital issue of Empire's latest magazine, which also revealed some of the photos you can see above, as well as a very straightforward response to the idea of a sequel for Rogue One. As translated, Kathleen Kennedy states that there will be NO movie entitled ROGUE TWO. So there ya have it! Looks like this is a true one-and-done Star Wars experience!
ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY will open in theaters on December 15, 2016.
