→ Also at EW, the creative team for Marvel’s Rogue One adaptation. Like The Force Awakens, it’ll be a six-issue series, but this one is written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Emilio Laiso. The first issue is due out in April. (That Phil Noto cover sure looks familiar…)

A new look at K-2SO from ABC gives us a look at Alan Tudyk in a different last scene for the droid.

→ io9’s Germain Lussier talks to editor John Gilroy about the film, focusing on the third act.

The origin of Jyn Erso’s name isn’t going to be feeding any of those Dark Forces conspiracy theories, sorry.

→ Shocking, Rogue One is up for several categories in the VES Awards. It’s also up for a Costume Designers Guild Award.

→ China isn’t that into it: Rogue One opens softer than The Force Awakens did.

Yes, Forest Whitaker is voicing him. Rebels returns January 7 on Disney XD.

Today in Rogue One: All the footage that didn’t make it, about the film’s most surprising locale


A nice video that shows many of the trailer/commercial shots that weren’t in the final film.
