Leaked Close-Up Look at Rogue One Costumes Revealed
The Nuremberg Toy Fair starts this week, and a fan has released leaked photos that seem to be the first close-up look at the costumes from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
These photos seem to show Felicity Jones' costume in the middle, while the one on the left seems to be Diego Luna's and the one on the right seems to be Donnie Yen's:

Luna's costume is particularly Han Solo-esque, especially evocative of his Hoth jacket from Empire Strikes Back:

And here's the costume worn by Chinese actor and filmmaker Jiang Wen, who appears to be the most heavily armored member of the group. Perhaps he's some kind of mercenary?

We don't know too much about these characters yet, except that they're a group of Resistance fighters who plot to steal the plans to the Death Star. Riz Ahmed's character is the only one who has a name so far: Bodhi Rook, which is likely connected to the Jedi temple Bodhi, which served as the Order's academy for the arts. The film takes place between the original and prequel trilogies, and has been all but confirmed to feature a pre-New Hope Darth Vader.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16.
