Disney and Lucasfilm are keeping the focus of the “Star Wars” publicity train very much on J.J. Abrams’ upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” later this year, but there’s another film looming on the horizon too – Gareth Edwards’ “Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One”.
Production is now underway on the first of the spin-offs which puts the focus around a group of Rebels stealing the plans of the first Death Star. The first set photos from Elstree Studios in the UK have gone online via The Mirror and show something fans should be happy about – the return of the classic Stormtroopers outfits. The shots show extras in the old costumes along with part of a ship on a jungle and sandy planet.
