Everything We Know About About Rogue One: A Star Wars Story!


The director for the movie was one of the earliest things that was officially announced for this film and the Director is set to be Gareth Edwards. A little controversy for such a huge film as Gareth Edwards only has two featurette films under his belt. Monsters which was a tiny low-budget film where Gareth actually did the CGI himself and then Godzilla which was only his second ever film.

In terms of Cast, it looks like Felicity Jones will be the lead character throughout the film. The actress most well known for her role in The Theory Of Everything looks to lead the line. However, after an image was posted of the cast standing together, the cast list has since lengthened.

After the image was released, the following cast has been confirmed: Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed. Unfortunately, we’re not sure yet who will play who or what exactly each cast member’s role is in within the film.

There are rumours of old villains returning within the film too. Obviously this was a time before the first original film, therefore, the likes of Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin appearing are fairly likely. At the very least, their existence in the world will be a certainty.


The Plot of Rogue One is based on the idea of how the rebels got the plans to the Death Star and how they ended up giving them to Princess Leia. The official synopsis for the film reads “Following the foundation of the Galactic Empire, a wayward band of Rebel fighters comes together to carry out a desperate mission: to steal the plans for the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the Emperor’s rule.”

Rogue One was the group of rogues in which Luke Skywalker flew with in Episode IV which the title suggests will be involved in the film. However, that cannot yet be confirmed as such.

Release Date

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to release on the 16th December 2016. Yes, that’s right, the exact same date for Episode VII. It looks like Disney are going to look to bring out a Star Wars film every Christmas for quite a few years to come yet. Whether this means we’ll get these other alternative Star Wars stories every other year to bridge the gap between the main trilogy, who knows. All we know is that both Episode VII and this new film have both been set for 16th December releases.

Everything Else

The costumes for the upcoming Rogue One film appears to have been leaked early which is good news for us. As you can see below, these look to be fairly rugged clothes that suggest the film will contain scavenger characters.


We saw images above of the cast wearing the costumes, however you can see them a little bit closer up here and potentially other outfits too.

My name is Luke and I have a huge passion for all things technology and generally geeky. I also enjoy learning about all sorts of random facts that I can bring up as conversation starters... to maybe deter possible friendships. I'm open and always excited about new things.
