A tidbit on Forest Whitaker’s costume for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Please do not repeat these details to people that are remaining spoiler-free. If these details are accurate they could be considered a spoiler for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
 

A friend of ours got a quick glimpse at the new costume Forest Whitaker will be wearing in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The details aren’t entirely elaborate but I still found them interesting and hopefully fascinating to you:

  • Whitaker has a “Power Suit” in the film.
  • The suit is green.
  • It is lumbering in size and sort of evokes a Buzz Lightyear vibe.
  • His cape is the same style as Boba Fett’s cape.

In the past we heard that he had some leg issues. I asked for some follow up on that but the person said in the suit it didn’t really seem possible to tell one way or the other. This character had a codename of “Eel Leader,” which makes us think he’s a bounty hunter of some kind as other groups are “Seals” and “Sharks.”
