Star Wars Celebration is currently going on right now in Europe, and during the Rogue One panel a lot of juicy new goodies have been revealed. Among them is an awesome featurette showcasing the making of the film. There a lot of brand new footage to go through, so check it out!

During the panel, we were also given new information about some of the characters in the film.

K-2SO (Alan Tudyk)
Alan Tudyk said that’s he’s a 7’1 droid that has been reprogrammed and is Diego Luna’s character’s best friend and he’s is crucial to the Rebellion. His data has been wiped and that may play a key role. “He speaks his mind and says things that can be unsettling, just very honest,” Tudyk said.

Chirrut (Donnie Yen)
“He’s a blind warrior, who believes in the Force. We’ve already seen him kick some major stormtrooper butt.”

Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn)
He is a different kind of Imperial villain, he said. “He’s smarter than most of his predecessors,” he added.

Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen)
As previously reported, he is Jyn’s father. “Can I say that he is a scientist, and he at one pint invented something so beautiful… it might change the universe,” he said about the role.

Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker)
“He’s been fighting for years against the Empire,” Whitaker said. “he’s controlling a group of rebels that fight to “the extreme. By any means necessary, he’ll do what he needs to do to save the world,” adding he’s been trained by the Jedi.

Darth Vader – (voiced by James Earl Jones)
He’s not new, but Edwards told a story about doing a voice-over session with James Earl Jones and how he literally freaked out when he said one line, “Power” in his iconic tone. “I can’t tell you what role he plays in the film,” the director joked.

Finally, we have a brand new poster with the ominous Death Star looming in the sky. Also, the tagline is definitely on point with its nod to Episode IV: A New Hope.
