Several New “Rogue One” Stills Released

More photos are out from Lucasfilm’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” ahead of its theatrical release on December 16th. The new shots, first published in Empire and released online via Making Star Wars, include most of the main characters played by the likes of Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Riz Ahmed and Ben Mendelsohn.

The photos follow in the wake of comments by Lucasfilm creative executive Rayne Roberts earlier this week about the formation of the Story Group for the franchise and how Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy is very happy with how its progressing. She told the Black Girl Nerds podcast this week:

“I think its been really comforting for [Kennedy] to know that the same team she works with to develop these movies is also in deep communication with everyone else. And we’re continuing to get better and better at it, that’s what’s really exciting. I mean, we’ve had our first couple of years where we’ve created connectivity, but we’ve got a lot more ideas to come.

Also out this week were some new photos of tie-in franchise merchandise including figurines and 3D collector’s glasses which have been included in the gallery below.
