We’re well into the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story portion of this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration, and while footage of the film is currently premiering, along with all manner of concept art and posters and such, our very own Perri Nemiroff was able to grab over 40 shots from the Rogue One exhibit. The exhibit features a number of models of machines like the new AT-ATs and the new fighter plane, but it’s primarily a showcase for costumes, ranging from those sported by Jyn and her crew to those donned by Deathtroppers and the Imperial Stormtroopers.
Each costume comes with an explanation of the character that wears it, as well as a description of the materials used to make the wardrobe, and though they don’t let too much out information out of the box, there’s a few tidbits that will help us get a larger sense of the soldiers and higher-ups in this fight. There’s no Darth Vader costume, so don’t get too excited, but there’s Ben Mendelsohn‘s Director Orsen Krennic’s eye-catching white cloak and uniform, and Diego Luna‘s Captain Cassian Andor’s get-up.
The costumes are all incredibly striking in their unique design and in their make-up, but the models to me are the most dazzling parts of all this, seeing those things up close and personal where we have become accustomed to only seeing them as computer-generated thingamajigs on the big screen. The new AT-AT design is not entirely different from the original designs one will likely remember from the original trilogy, but there’s just enough small changes to give them their own distinct look, and that’s kinda all they need. After all, this film is connected directly to the three original films, so the design should be similar, if not vastly different the way The Force Awakens designs were.
