‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ pictures

Among the pictures of the Rebels, there is a still of the scene in which the alliance members find out about the destructive powers of the Death Star. Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) will bring them this information, and she will later be tasked with stealing the plans of this dreaded weapon. The other pictures are that of the Rebel team on their mission.

There are also pictures of action sequences from the film. Stills of the space battle, first seen in one of the trailers, are also featured in the report. Fans also get to see the new U-Wing transport ship that the Rebels will use in their mission in the film.

‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ different from main saga

The upcoming movie is the first spin-off being released by Disney. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kennedy said that the opening crawl that was seen in the trilogies released by the franchise so far may not be seen in the next film. The move appears to be aimed at differentiating the spin-offs from the main saga.

In another interview with Variety, Kennedy elaborated by saying the opening crawl is “indicative” of the saga films. She, however, confirmed that the film will begin with the familiar title.

Kennedy described “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” as a World War II style adventure. J.J. Abrams teased that going forward the fans are going to see more variety from the franchise. While some films will be “grittier and tougher,” others will be more comedy.
