We’re less than a month away from the release of Star Wars spin-off, Rogue One. And while we’ve likely seen the final trailer for the would-be blockbuster before its theatrical premiere, a batch of new photos has arrived featuring some pre-release looks at the cast and the return of the saga’s classic Big Bad.
Yes, among the pics published by EW.com and shared via Instagram, we get an official snapshot (above) of everyone’s favorite Sith Lord daddy, Darth Vader. The Instagram caption claims Vader’s threat “is even broader” in Rogue One than before — it’s hard to imagine how, given that we know EXACTLY what he’s up to, having seen Star Wars: Episode IV, V, and VI — but the photo does make us all the more eager to see the Empire’s famous villain back in action. There are a number of other intriguing shots (15 in all), including peeks at Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso, Diego Luna’s Captain Cassian Andor, Donnie Yen’s Chirrut Imwe, and Jiang Wen’s Baze Malbus (see two photos below).
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story rockets into theaters on Dec. 16.
