Imperial Stormtroopers out in force on the shores of Scarif, in ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY.

501st-ers and STAR WARS fans worldwide who love the classic Imperial Stormtroopers will surely be in Seventh Heaven with next week's release of ROGUE ONE. Just from the trailers alone, I don't think we've ever seen so many assembled in one film and operating in so many environments. Though keeping to the classic and best design from the original 1977 film, John Knoll and the ILM team have additionally made some subtle visual improvements to the masks.

It looks like they've flown from one end of trouble into another- Rey and Finn witnessing the inexplicable automatic shutdown of the Millennium Falcon, as a mysterious ship looms in ready to capture them, in this lively scene from THE FORCE AWAKENS.

Screenings of early ROGUE ONE footage have drawn great critical plaudits, noting the impressive way the filmmakers have brought artistic freshness to the STAR WARS universe alongside many visual tributes and upgrades to classic designs from the era of Luke Skywalker. ABRAMS BOOKS eagerly awaited 'Art of' book on the new film, containing 300 illustrations, will surely be a fascinating and compelling guide as to how it all came together.

More book info:

This book is a visual chronicle of the Lucasfilm art department’s creation of new worlds, unforgettable characters, and newly imagined droids, vehicles, and weapons for the first movie in the Star Wars Story series—Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In the same format and style as Abrams’ The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the book gives readers unprecedented access to hundreds of concept paintings, sketches, storyboards, matte paintings, and character, costume, and vehicle designs. The Art of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will stand as the definitive guide to the artwork and imagination behind the newest chapter in the Star Wars franchise and will delight Star Wars fans and cineastes for decades to come.

Directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla, Monsters), with production design by Doug Chiang and Neil Lamont, Rogue One chronicles the adventures of a Rebel cell tasked with a desperate mission: to steal the plans for the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the Emperor’s rule. The all-star cast includes Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Jiang Wen, and Donnie Yen.


Josh Kushins has worked steadily for various Hollywood studios most recently on the Publicity teams for Lucasfilm Ltd. and DC Comics, and is the Director of Special Projects at the American Film Institute. He is the author of The Art of John Carter: A Visual Journey (Disney, 2012).

Doug Chiang and Neil Lamont served as co-production designers for Rogue One.

BAFTA –nominated Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla [2014]) served as director.

Wet war! Jyn and her team begin a retrieval mission on Edu, in ROGUE ONE. All imagery: LUCASFILM/DISNEY.

SPOILER ALERT! The rain-lashed world of Edu. Its likely the last new planet to be revealed in ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, playing host to a major skirmish between Empire and Rebels over the ultimate fate of scientist Galen Erso, the man so key to the development of the Death Star super weapon that could enslave the galaxy. It will be the highest personal stakes battle for Jyn Erso, too, desperate to save her father and free him from the grasp of cruel Imperial Director Orson Krennic. What will be the consequences of this spectacular battle? We'll find out from December 15th, 2016, only in UK cinemas.

"Mad, bad and dangerous know", that's the classic description from fiction past of romantic era poet Lord Byron. And comedienne/actor, now android inhabiter of ROGUE ONE, Alan Tudyk, could be all these things and more, too - though in the funnest and zaniest of ways, making the cult American star the perfect choice to play the drily functional, sarcastic, edgy and doesn't mince words former Imperial spy droid K-2SO, now reprogrammed by his servant Captain Cassian Andor to serve the Republic against the Empire- surely one of our band of heroes best tricks up their sleeves during their bold mission to steal the Death Star plans from heavy enemy opposition and formidable firepower at Scarif!
