Rogue One: A Star Wars Story nieuws en details

Via EW hebben we meer details ontvangen over de personages uit Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Je kan tevens alle portretten hieronder bekijken.


Het eerste nieuwtje dat we kunnen melden is dat Darth Vader terugkeert in Rogue One. Het is nog niet bekend hoe groot zijn rol zal zijn. Het personage was te zien in deel vier, vijf en zes van de originele Star Wars-filmreeks. Anakin Skywalker, het personage dat uiteindelijk in Darth Vader transformeert, was in deel een, twee en drie te zien.
000a3r54324-r2d2-ew1421Het eerste personage waarover we details hebben is Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso, over wie Lucasfilm president en Rogue One producent Kathleen Kennedy zegt:

“She’s got a checkered past. She has been detained [by the Rebellion] and is being given an opportunity to be useful. And by being useful, it may commute her sentence.”

Diego Luna’s Captain Cassian Andor wordt omschreven als een, “by-the-book Rebel intelligence officer who is committed, steady, and practical, and has seen more than his share of combat.” Kiri Hart, Lucasfilm’s chief of story development zei:

“He conveys a fair amount of experience and the reality of what it’s like to do this every day, to try to figure out how to resist the Empire effectively and intelligently. It’s not easy.”

Donnie Yen’s Chirrut Imwe is een van de meest interessante nieuwe toevoegingen. Hij wordt omschreven als:

“Chirrut falls into the category of being a warrior monk. He very much still believes in everything the Jedi were about.”

Daarnaast hebben we Jiang Wen’s Baze Malbus:

“Heavily armored and a loyal friend of Chirrut, while Riz Ahmed’s Bodhi Rook is the lead pilot of the group, described as “hot-headed.”

Alan Tudyk’s motion capture personage K-2SO is:

“The antithesis of C-3PO. Kaytoo is a little bit like Chewbacca’s personality in a droid’s body. He doesn’t give a s— about what you think. He doesn’t fully check himself before he says things and does things. He just speaks the truth.”

Mads Mikkelsen’s Galen Erso, de vervreemde vader van Jyn, is omschreven als:

“The Star Wars version of the father of nuclear weapons, J. Robert Oppenheimer, and the kind of scientist that both the Rebellion and Empire are eager to use to their advantage. He’s one of those people that has insight into you know specific aspects of just how the universe works.”

Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland, The Butler) speelt Saw Gerrera. Fans zullen hem herkennen van The Clone Wars serie (stem vanAndrew Kishino), waar hij zijdelings vocht met Anakin Skywalker. Kennedy zei:

“Consider him kind of a battered veteran who leads a band of Rebel extremists. He’s on the fringe of the Rebel Alliance. Even [they] are a little concerned about him. He’s off on his own.”
