A load of new details have popped up online from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and, being the Star Wars junkie we are, we’re drinking it up.

So, what do we have?

Ok, details:

We knew this already, but the mission is for the rebel team to steal the plans of The Death Star that Princess Leia fatefully has in A New Hope.

The characters are also named:

– Felicity Jones plays Jyn Erso, a gifted soldier and warrior.
– Diego Luna plays Captain Cassian Andor, an officer in the Rebel Alliance
– Jiang Wen plays Baze, a freelance assassin
– Alan Tudyk plays the CGI character K-250, an Enforcer Droidand evidently an imperial model, but teams up with the rebels.
– Riz Ahmed plays Bodhi, a rebel soldier.
– Pao, an alien who is described as a “fierce warrior”.
– Donnie Yen plays Chirrut, a spiritual warrior.
– Bistan, another alien who is described as a “fierce warrior”.
– Ben Mendelssohn as Director Krennic, the military director of the Empire, to defend the Galactic Empire against the Rebels mission to steal the Death Star plans.

Also, check out the awesome new images too, focusing on K-250, the Imperials, the rebels, new ships and… Darth Vader!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
