First Look at the Costumes and Character Descriptions for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
The doors to Star Wars Celebration were flung open in London today, and one of the main attractions for the thousands of fans filtering in was a chance to get an up close and personal look at the costumes and props of Rogue One: A Star Wars story. A new trailer for Gareth Edwards' movie is also released today, but this exhibit gives us a chance to learn more about some of its characters, both new and old. 

Director Krennic was one of the big mysteries of the first Rogue One trailer, but the Celebration exhibit gives a bit more detail on his character, 



As we've learnt from previous descriptions, Krennic has become obsessed with the completion of the Death Star. But, as we also know from Star Wars canon of old, Grand Moff Tarkin was the man responsible for this particular project. So, why is Krennic so obsessed with making this battle station fully operational? That, it would seem, will be one of the key plot points of the movie.



Another of the characters that stood out from the trailer were the Death Troopers. As the Rogue One exhibit reveals, these Death Troopers are actually the personal bodyguards of Director Krennic.




As if having special bodyguard troopers isn't enough, Krennic even has his own ship – A Delta class T-3c Shuttle.



Rogue One will also introduce another new type of Stormtrooper, a group who, in my opinion, are the best-looking soldiers in the whole damned Imperial military. The Shoretroopers were tasked with guarding the Empire's top secret military facility on a tropical planet. It's likely this facility was at the heart of making the Death Star a reality.



Now, it's time for the good guys. The exhibit revealed new information about some of the Rebellion's biggest weapons in their early fight against the Empire.

While we've seen a lot of Donnie Yen's Chirrut Îmwe, we don't know much about him. The exhibit tells us that, even without the power of sight or the ability to wield the force, Îmwe is a fearsome warrior.





Wen Jiang plays Îmwe's best friend, and polar opposite, Baze Malbus. Malbus has been angered by the Imperial occupation of his homeworld. Unlike his best friend, Malbus is an expert at range warfare, using his heavy repeater cannon with brutal efficiency.



Riz Ahmed plays Bodhi Rook, a former Imperial Pilot who has opted to leave the imposing forces of the Empire to help the Rebellion fight for freedom. Could this be Rogue One's Poe Dameron?





Heading up the Rebels' mission is Diego Luna's Cassa CT. Cassian Andor. While he's known to keep a cool head under pressure, we imagine there will be more than few sparks flying between him and his new recruit, Jyn Erso.





Finally, here's a look at a couple of the Empire's new (or old) toys.
