Courtesy of Slashfilm an early version of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's visual story guide has leaked online. While most of the text shown seems to be placeholder text taken from previous Star Wars visual story guides the awesome collection of images reveals much about the new film, including confirmation from the image below that Darth Vader will feature in the movie...

It is still unknown as to whether or not Hayden Christensen will indeed reprise the role from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, as has been rumored, and it is still unclear how much of a role the Sith Lord will play. Hopefully, now that the cat is out of the bag Lucasfilm can 'leak' some more information, especially regards that mysterious Bacta Tank scene from the trailer that has caused so much speculation.

The visual story guide for Rogue One doesn't just reveal the long suspected return of everyone's favorite Darth. Included within the guides pages include the imagery for two new additions to Star Wars arsenal of awesome warcraft. The Rebel Alliance have been given the new 'Starfighter' while the Empire get the deadly looking TIE Striker...

As if that wasn't enough, the visual story guide also reveals the names of Rogue One, the team of Rebel spies led by Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones). Her team is (pictured below)...

– Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), an officer in the Rebel Alliance
– Baze (Jiang Wen), a freelance assassin
– Bodhi (Riz Ahmed), a rebel soldier
– Pao, a “fierce warrior” alien
– Chirrut (Donnie Yen), a spiritual warrior
– Bistan, another “fierce warrior” alien
– K-250 (Alan Tudyk), an Imperial Enforcer Droid that’s defected to the Rebellion

As you can see the two new alien characters and K-250 will be realized using CGI, but hopefully the days of Jar Jar Binks can be put to rest. It is also revealed that Ben Mendelsohn's imposing Imperial character will be called Director Krennec, and that he will have command of the classic Stormtroopers and the newly revealed Deathtroopers...

There are also some other pages that have been leaked, included a look at the Imperial Walker (AT-AT), the Death Star and Alan Tudyk's character K-250...

Please, not Hayden Christensen.


2KModerator3811 XPMay-17-2016 3:40 PM

Hayden Christensen was awesome.

And he should be the one in the suit, not the voice, but in the suit. He is Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, no matter what the "fans" say.

"Hayden Christensen was awesome."

As long as James Earl Jones is Vader's voice, I'm satisfied.

Oh come on.

In ROTS he was great, AOTC maybe not so much. I don't what's with people and thinking Star Wars had like phenomenal acting.

The OT wasn't that great with acting, don't get why people are so offended by the PT.

Not much here for me. Always figured Vader would be in it so in terms of big info it's mostly the characters names for me.
