Wet war! Jyn and her team begin a retrieval mission on Edu, in ROGUE ONE. All imagery: LUCASFILM/DISNEY.

SPOILER ALERT! The rain-lashed world of Edu. Its likely the last new planet to be revealed in ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, playing host to a major skirmish between Empire and Rebels over the ultimate fate of scientist Galen Erso, the man so key to the development of the Death Star super weapon that could enslave the galaxy. It will be the highest personal stakes battle for Jyn Erso, too, desperate to save her father and free him from the grasp of cruel Imperial Director Orson Krennic. What will be the consequences of this spectacular battle? We'll find out from December 15th, 2016, only in UK cinemas.

"Mad, bad and dangerous know", that's the classic description from fiction past of romantic era poet Lord Byron. And comedienne/actor, now android inhabiter of ROGUE ONE, Alan Tudyk, could be all these things and more, too - though in the funnest and zaniest of ways, making the cult American star the perfect choice to play the drily functional, sarcastic, edgy and doesn't mince words former Imperial spy droid K-2SO, now reprogrammed by his servant Captain Cassian Andor to serve the Republic against the Empire- surely one of our band of heroes best tricks up their sleeves during their bold mission to steal the Death Star plans from heavy enemy opposition and formidable firepower at Scarif!

The discovery of yet another wrecked Imperial speeder bike brings much cause for concern about the well being of the lone Princess Leia to Han, Luke and the Rebel Commando Team on Endor, in this scene from RETURN OF THE JEDI.

Thursday, 1 December 2016


She fought long and hard with words and blaster power in equal measure, made personal sacrifices beyond the call of duty, and suffered the loss of so many loved ones to restore the Republic from the prior decades of Galactic Empire dictatorship, so Senator Leia Organa will be damned if she lets the rising evil of what will become the First Order try and carve a foothold against the just about peace that has been kept for over fifteen years, as Claudia Gray's entertaining prelude to THE FORCE AWAKENS, Bloodline, arrives in UK paperback today from ARROW. Its definitely worth a read, of which the author captures Leia's personality, strength, vulnerability and courage effectively.

This paperback edition also comes with a STAR WARS INSIDER MAGAZINE short story from Delilah S. Dawson: Scorched.

The original "hidden fortress" of the growing Rebel Alliance return to our screens, located amidst the jungles and within the long abandoned Massassi temples of the lush fourth moon of Yavin, or shouldn't that be seen for the first time, with the prequel adventure that is ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY. The visual continuity between 1977 and 2016 is clearly excellent, though we now have the chance to see the view of the environment and the Alliance forces from the inside out rather than the other way around (as had been witnessed with the original film), and a chance to pay homage to conceptual artist Ralph McQuarrie's original 1975 idea of fighters located at the exterior of the base, ready for battle.

Y-wing fighters readied, in art by McQuarrie.

Within the battle of the Geonosian Death Arena, C-3PO is indeed acting very curiously and aggressively, now that his head has been planted accidentally onto a Battle Droid's body, in this fun moment from EPISODE II.

Surely the character whom audiences will relate to the most during the blistering and explosive warfare ahead in ROGUE ONE, Bodhi Rook is the uneasy former Imperial pilot tasked with getting our heroes in and out of certain difficult planetary hotspots, and a key resource in locating the hidden resistance fighter Saw Gerrera on the frozen desert world of Jedha.

On Jedha, Bodhi negotiates for Jyn to meet the elusive Saw Gerrera.
Bodhi's costume, as seen at CELEBRATION 2016.

Popular British actor Riz Ahmed apparently had additional character moments given to him with the film's extra shooting this year, of which we have no doubt that Bodhi will play a pivotal part in the ground battle of Scarif- at a time when things seem bleak he will surely, ultimately prove one of the Rebel Alliance's most courageous fighters, his actions reminding audiences that there heroism can be found deep inside all of us in the worst of times...

Caught in the firing line, but soon making a difference.
