Force Friday is upon us, ladies and gentlemen, and to celebrate, Lucasfilm and Disney have lifted the lid on a series of promo images for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Capping off a stellar month for the Star Wars brand – the season 3 premiere of Star Wars Rebels was a particular highlight – these new stills for Gareth Edwards’ militaristic spinoff spotlight Felicity Jones’ outcast and would-be hero Jyn Erso and her band of Rebels, Darth Vader and even Bistan, the gun-toting monkey man who quickly became a fan-favorite on the heels of Rogue One‘s most recent sizzle reel.

You’ll find all of that and more in the gallery above, which hails from the Topps Star Wars Card Trader app (via CBM). Plus, as this is officially Force Friday – an event reserved to champion the first wave of tie-in merchandise for an upcoming Star Wars movie, in this case Rogue One – you’ll be able to locate plenty of merch in the vein of action figures, Funko Pops and LEGO sets cramming up high-street stores and online outlets. May the Force be with you.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will land on December 16 and when it does, it won’t be shackled with huge box office expectations off the back of The Force Awakens, which went on to pull in over $2 billion worldwide. If you’re wondering when Disney will premiere a new look at Edwards’ Anthology film, keep your peepers peeled on the release of Marvel’s Doctor Strange on November 4.
