The preview of Star Wars Rogue One Official Visual Story Guide on the Edelweiss catalogue has presented 10 double-page spreads which provide previously unknown characters names, some new vehicles, as well as the classic Death Star plans. These were originally reported by JediBibliothek and show preliminary mock-ups of the cover and a few of the book’s inside pages confirming that Rogue One will be huge.
Okay STOP NOW if you don’t want any spoilers … STOP!
The characters listed are as described by the website JediBibliothek
The Rebel Alliance is made up of:
• Felicity Jones plays Jyn Erso, a gifted soldier and warrior.
• Diego Luna plays Captain Cassian Andor, an officer in the Rebel Alliance
• Jiang Wen plays Baze, a freelance assassin
• Alan Tudyk plays the CGI figure K-250, an enforcer droid and evidently an imperial model, but teams up with the rebels.
• Riz Ahmed plays Bodhi, a rebel soldier.
• Pao, an alien who is described as “fierce warrior”.
• Donnie Yen plays Chirrut, a spiritual warrior.
• Bistan, another alien who is described as “fierce warrior”.
Less info on the imperial side but we get a glimpse of:
• Ben Mendelssohn as director Krennic, the military director of the Empire, to defend the Galactic Empire against the theft of Mission rebels.
• Darth Vader again plays the part of the galaxies best villain.
• Black Death Troopers are elite imperial soldiers and a cool addition to the Stormtrooper lineage
The pictures below speak a thousand words with the quality of artwork astounding. This only confirms that Rogue One will be an epic story, and that December cannot come soon enough.
