As we saw last year with The Force Awakens, the Star Wars marketing team knows how to reveal tons of imagery, footage, and juicy detail without giving away much at all. Now, as Rogue One enters the final weeks of its promotional campaign, it seems to be sticking to a similar formula of intense secrecy combined with total ubiquity. You can’t throw a rock these days without hitting yet another new Rogue One TV spot or specialty poster or cast interview, and yet I’m feeling pretty confident that we can trust Disney not to “spoil” anything significant. Your mileage may vary, of course.
Which brings us to Disney’s latest volley in their relentless campaign for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The studio’s unveiled a whole bunch of hi-res Rogue One images, some of which are just higher-quality versions of photos we’ve already seen and others of which appear to be completely new. Either way, you can probably rest assured you’re in good hands with Disney. At least unless you’re the kind of spoilerphobe who’s sworn off all Rogue One marketing already, in which case you’ve probably already scrolled past this post. See the new Rogue One images below.

Above you can see the latest Rogue One images rounded up by Star Wars News Net.
The characters most prominently featured in this round of photos are the Rebel heroes, Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), Chirrut Îmwe (Donnie Yen), Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen), Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker) and of course Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones). (Unfortunately, Riz Ahmed‘s Bodhi Rook is nowhere to be seen. I really hope that doesn’t mean he’s going to die early on.) But bad guy Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) gets a nice dramatic shot too, and there are some neat photos of various Stormtroopers in battle. And let’s not forget K-2SO, that adorably awkward droid voiced by Alan Tudyk. Collectively, they paint a picture of a movie that really emphasizes the “war” part of Star Wars.
