Gareth Edwards and friends have talked about Rogue One in some detail at the Celebration Event. Here's what we picked up.
- Its place in the Star Wars time line is just before A New Hope
- It features “A band of resistance fighters unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans’.
- The movie will not focus on the Jedi instead the move “ comes down to a group of individuals who don’t have magical powers that have to somehow bring hope to the galaxy”.
- John Knoll came up with the story.
- Obi Wan is the voice talking during the leaked teaser. They are his lines from A New Hope when he fills Luke in on the comings and goings of his father and Vader.
- Felicity Jones plays a Rebel soldier.
- Rogue One is directed by Gareth Edwards. He made his name with Monsters and cashed in with Godzilla.
- Doug Chiang is a production designer. His claim to fame is design work on the prequel trilogies.
We're presuming the teaser that was shown 'in house' will not be made officially available due to the promotional arrangement in place regarding Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
