Yes, Rogue One footage is out there – but it hasn’t leaked or been made public. Just a few people have seen it, and one person has shared what he saw.
The upcoming Star Wars Anthology film – the first-ever non-episode live action feature entry into the Star Wars universe – is set to open this December, but so far the fans have only been given one measly scrap of a cast photo (along with the above concept image). But Disney CEO Robert Iger recently screened footage of the “Episode IV Parallel Prequel” (my term, not theirs) to Disney board members. Described as a “war movie”, it’s about the band of spies that stole the plans used to destroy the Death Star in the original Star Wars film, A New Hope.
But now, someone who was (allegedly) in attendance of that secret sneak peak wrote into Slash Film to report what he saw:
“Most of it was very quick. A shot of the black stormtrooper, possibly called Death Troopers as previously reported, another pic of that same style of helmet and armor but all chrome, reminiscent of Captain Phasma from The Force Awakens, an image showed two AT-ATs that had a slightly different look with the door panel on the side of the body painted a lighter beige color. And a couple cast photos were shown, one of Felicity Jones & Diego Lunaand another of Donnie Yen. The clip featured Felicity’s character on what looked like the inside of a ship or shuttle with her arm up holding on and the hatch/ramp open behind her. I wish I could remember what she said as part of the sizzle but it went by too fast. The new stormtroopers looked great. It all looked great, had a classic Star Wars/A New Hope look & feel. Bob Iger said that they didn’t have footage but that it & Episode VIII had been filming as previously stated. I’m definitely more excited for the film since it will be set close to the classic trilogy time & like I said it definitely had a similar look/feel.”
Hopefully we’ll get to see this Rogue One sizzle sooner rather than later…most likely in front of Captain America: Civil War when it opens on May 6.
