Rebel Soldiers Assemble

image

Via Entertainment Weekly:

“Here we see Diego Luna’s Capt. Cassian Andor in the beach battle alongside some fellow Rebel soldiers — all of them human. From the original trilogy, we know a great many creatures also joined the Rebellion. Did those species line up and follow the lead of the humans after the events of Rogue One? Or have we just not seen some of the aliens who will join this battle? Director Gareth Edwards says there are at least two background creatures who fight with the squad, but they aren’t major characters. “They’re not necessarily front-and-center,” he says, before joking: “But maybe one day, there’ll be a spinoff movie.”

Baze Malbus Takes Aim

Via Entertainment Weekly:

While Chirrut puts his faith in the Force, Jiang Wen’s hard-bitten soldier, Baze Malbus, clearly believes more in the force of firepower. Here we see him taking up position beside a crashed X-wing fighter, toting a blaster that’s linked up to a massive power pack on his back. Was he the pilot of this downed vehicle? In the teaser, we see Chirrut taking out Stormtroopers with this wreckage in the background. Is this where the two meet and become brothers-in-arms — or does their friendship go back much further?”

Jyn and Cassian 

Via Entertainment Weekly:

In the era of fandom ‘shipping, it’s only a matter of time before people start drawing hearts around Jyn and Cassian. The filmmakers say he’s the reliable, stable one who counters her loose-cannon tendencies, sort of Murtaugh to her Riggs. (There’s probably a fandom out there who ‘ship the two Lethal Weapon characters, too.) No doubt Jyn and Cassian form a trust and a friendship, but does that always have to mean romance? Is there perhaps value in showing a man and woman whose partnership is strictly platonic, an example of two soldiers who share a deep affection for each other, but not necessarily in that way? Or are we just going to ‘ship, ‘ship, ‘ship until the Banthas come home?

Storming The Beach

Via Entertainment Weekly:

Don’t worry, the Empire isn’t using choppers alongside its TIE Strikers to strafe the Rebellion. This is a behind-the-scenes shot, showing Baze, Chirrut, and a squad of Rebel fighters storming the beach. The helicopter camera is a surprising element, however, because it’s not typically the kind of shot we’ve seen before in a Star Wars film, which tend to be more classically composed. Edwards says he’s going for a hand-held, you-are-there approach to filming this battle, and a hovering, swooping camera angle could be an interesting component of that. The question now is how this approach will alter the vibe of what a Star Wars film can be.”

Words can’t describe how excited I am for Rogue One. Based on just these photos alone, you can see how similar these battles are to real historical battles. Huge shoutout to Anthony Breznican for covering all this on Entertainment Weely! He did a great job as usual.
