Following the Star Wars Celebration in the UK over the weekend, the poster for ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY was unveiled to the public. Due for release in Australia on 15 December 2016, the folks at Walt Disney Studios Australia have sent over the local one-sheet for the highly anticipated prequel film.
The brightly lit poster is a stark contrast with the doom and gloom that pervades most major events, although the shadow of the Death Star above the scene is more than enough foreboding for one A4 sized image. “Come and visit the sunny Empire,” would be an apt tagline were it not for the blaster fire.
Directed by Gareth Edwards, and with a screenplay by Chris Weitz (based on a story by John Knoll and Gary Whitta), the film stars Felicity Jones, alongside Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Australia’s Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and Jonathan Aris.
