As you’re probably well aware by now, Star Wars Celebration is currently underway in London. The annual big hurrah for all things Star Wars is poised to bring us celebrity panels and sneak peak footage throughout the weekend, and they kicked the first day off with a big Rogue One: A Star Wars Story panel.
And they brought out the big guns, including director Gareth Edwards, writer/visual effects supervisor John Knoll , Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy, and the entire leading cast, Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, and Alan Tudyk. And the whole thing was moderated by Gwendoline Christie, no less. We got a new poster, a behind-the-scenes video, some fresh insight into the characters and filming, maybe a spoiler or two, and for those lucky folks in the room, there was even a new trailer. Most importantly, we got Ben Mendelsohn rocking flawlessly rocking that cape. Bless.
While Lucasfilm live-streamed the panel, the video is currently set to private. I mean, this is the internet, I’m sure you could find it, but there’s no legit source at the moment. However, for those of us who missed it, Disney has just released a big batch of HD images (Click through any image for High-Res) from the Celebration floor. Check out the images and all our Star Wars Celebration Day 1 coverage below, and stay tuned throughout the weekend for all the breaking news.
