STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE images and information (SPOILERS)

Some publicity images and information from the forthcoming movie Star Wars: Rogue One have leaked onto the Internet from publishers involved in licensing tie-in material for the film.

This information includes a more complete cast list for the film:
  • Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso
  • Diego Luna as Captain Cassian Andor of the Rebel Alliance
  • Riz Ahmed as Bodhi Rook, a Rebel soldier
  • Ben Mendelsohn as Director Krennic of the Galactic Empire
  • Donnie Yen as Chirrut, a "spiritual" warrior
  • Jiang Wen as Baze, a freelance assassin
  • Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso, Jyn's father
  • Alan Tudyk as K-250, an enforcer droid
  • Jonathan Aris as Senator Jebel
  • Genevieve O'Reilly as Mon Mothma
The names of Forest Whitaker, Alistair Petrie and Eunice Olumide's characters remain unknown, whilst two "fierce warrior" alien characters named Pao and Bistan are identified but with no actors linked to them. The leak also appears to support earlier rumours that Darth Vader will appear in the film in at least a brief and limited capacity, likely played by Spencer Wilding (Game of Thrones) and voiced by James Earl Jones.

The information also confirms that we will see X-wings and Y-wings in the film, but also a previously unknown fighter type known as the U-wing and a hitherto unseen TIE model called the TIE Striker, which appears to have been optimised for atmospheric combat.

Star Wars: Rogue One will be released on 16 December 2016.

No, or at least it appears not.
