The release of the first stand-alone Star Wars film is still half a year away, but we are starting to get some details about the film as we get closer. This week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly features an exclusive first look at the main characters of Rogue One. There are some spoilers there, so be warned! You can see the new pictures along with the character bios here: http://www.ew.com/gallery/rogue-one-first-look-photos
One of the most exciting things that we learn from this article for me is that Forest Whitaker’s character is none other than Saw Gerrera from Star Wars: The Clone Wars! Saw only appeared in one story arc and I wasn’t overly fond of him, so I feel like there were a lot better choices for characters to bring back for this movie, but it’s still interesting to see a character from the animated series make it into one of the movies. If you need a refresher, you can read our reviews of the Onderon arc here:
