Completing its hat-trick of cover reveals, Empire Magazine has today lifted the lid on its minimalist subscriber cover for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which places Alan Tudyk’s towering droid K-2SO (AKA Kaytoo) front and center.
Following up on those one-sheets that highlighted both the light and dark side of the Force – not to mention a new image from earlier today that focused on Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) – this latest Rogue One nugget presents the highly-classified schematics for Tudyk’s military enforcer droid, who has already struck a chord with the Star Wars faithful thanks to the film’s trailers.
Fighting for the same cause as Jyn Erso and her “pack of misfits,” it’ll be interesting to discover whether Kaytoo can go on to become the “new BB-8” of this rebooted Star Wars universe.
Well find out on December 16, when Jones, Luna and Tudyk will be flanked by Mads Mikkelsen, Forest Whitaker, Jiang Wen, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, James Earl Jones and Genevieve O’Reilly as a young Mon Mothma.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16. It’ll be followed in quick succession by Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII and the hotly-anticipated Han Solo Anthology film in 2017 and 2018, respectively – assuming Disney doesn’t reshuffle its release slate, of course.
