Empire Cover For Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Rallies The Rebels


In their continued quest to make Christmas time synonymous with all things Star Wars, Disney and Lucasfilm will be launching Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first in a series of new Anthology films, into theaters come December 16.

Hailing from Godzilla director Gareth Edwards, the spinoff movie hasn’t been without its issues, with reports of extensive reshoots emerging during the midst of production. But if those allegations have put a dampener on Rogue One‘s arrival, it doesn’t show.

One week on from the latest trailer setting the Internet alight, Empire Magazine has unveiled Edwards’ prequel film to be the cover star of its latest issue, and you can have a gander at the full one-sheet below featuring Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso and her ragtag crew of intergalactic rebels.


Indeed, Empire’s coverage of Rogue One is part of the outlet’s winter preview, with set reports of Doctor Strange, Fantastic Beasts, Assassin’s Creed and action sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back all in the tank. It’ll hit newsstands next week, August 25, but not before a second, alternate cover is unveiled tomorrow, followed by the subscribers cover on Monday, August 22. One thing’s for sure, it’s fast becoming an exciting week for Star Wars fans.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story also features Jiang Wen, Riz Ahmed, Alan Tudyk, Ben Mendelsohn, James Earl Jones and Genevieve O’Reilly in key roles, and is due to hit theaters on December 16.
