New Rogue One Poster And Featurette Are Worth Celebrating

In recent weeks, the team behind Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has been busy re-shooting a significant percentage of the film with the help of screenwriter/director Tony Gilroy. While that has lead some to believe that the film is in trouble, we’ve seen countless movies triumph over his kind of adversity in the past. (World War Z is a recent example.) If the team behind Rogue One is worried, they certainly aren’t showing it—because they’re too busy celebrating.

Earlier today, director Gareth Edwards and producer Kathleen Kennedy kicked off London’s Star Wars Celebration by debuting a new teaser poster and an exclusive new Rogue One sizzle reel. Comprised of behind-the-scenes footage, interviews, and some new clips from the film, this video is no less action-packed than most trailers.

Describing the shoot, Edwards explains that he never had trouble finding “an amazing shot with amazing characters,” and there’s ample evidence of both throughout the new featurette. For a quick look at those amazing shots and characters, check out the new highlight reel and poster below. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives in theatres on December 16, just five months from tomorrow.
