Another one-sheet for Solo: A Star Wars Story has been officially revealed on The Star Wars Show, although it was actually spotted in theaters a few days ago.
Jon Favreau will be voicing “a very cool & important alien character” in Solo, per Ron Howard. This is his second time doing a GFFA voice – he previously played Pre Vizsla in The Clone Wars.
→ The official site has also posted
all those new pictures from Entertainment Weekly – sans the annoying watermarks.
Head under the cut for a full look at that new poster.

New footage spotted! A brief look at Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose Tico in action is a highlight of
a spot for EDF Energy (okay…), while General Organa and Poe have a great exchange in a new commercial. (Another recent spot features new Finn footage!)
There’s also a great profile of Tran at Buzzfeed which is definitely worth a read. She talks about her background, Harry Potter, and Carrie Fisher in the gym. She teases that Rose has “has an interesting relationship with war.” She’s also one of The Hollywood Reporter’s Next Gen Talent picks.
There were also two big image reveals today: A new picture of Laura Dern as Amilyn Holdo came as part of
a quick profile in , and the IMAX poster in Elle USA Today.

Lucasfilm has blessed us with
even more porg concept art by Jake Lunt. So expressive. I love them.
→ Leak watch:
A new vehicle was spotted, and it reveals the name of the planet Canto Bight is on. (It’s a pretty goofy name, perfectly matched to a very looking vehicle, but that’s Star Wars for you.)
→ Also leaked – though I can’t even begin to tell you where exactly it originated online – is
a new still of Carrie Fisher in Leia’s cape costume.
→ Making Star Wars shares
some sketch recreations of two of the posters that Jason saw back around SDCC.
→ Much has been made of
this John Boyega interview and his Carrie Fisher comments, but I do believe he’s speaking metaphorically. There’s another one over here, and also some Gwendoline Christie. Vagueness for all!
Making Star Wars has some new info that is sure to launch (relaunch?) some new Snoke theories. It’s
about his appearance, and backed up, for the most part, by recent Lego leaks.

It’s here! The behind-the-scenes reel for
The Last Jedi gives us a peek at the production, and a LOT of new things, or at least, things we’ve heard about…
We’re also getting posters! Leia, Rey, Finn, Poe, Luke and Kylo.
The video was the
Star Wars highlight, but the panel did include some very heavy hints that Finn and Phasma would face off. Look at these dorks:
As revealed on this week’s Star Wars Show, the Barnes & Noble edition of
Aftermath: Empire’s End will come with posters featuring Norra Wexley and Grand Admiral Rae Sloane. Also, more Rogue One behind-the-scenes action with Pablo Hidalgo, and Ando chats with the film’s co-producer, John Swartz.
Rogue One tickets will go on sale Monday, November 28, Lucasfilm announced last night. They’re expected to be available at 12:01 a.m. from most ticket retailers. If you have a Regal theater, you can get an “Ultimate Ticket” for $100 that will let you see the film once a day as long as it’s in their theaters. Tickets for the film are already on sale in the U.K.
In the meantime, another trailer with a few additional bits of footage debuted on a Disney ABC special yesterday. Here’s a look:
We also got new poster reveals overnight: Three new IMAX and an exclusive for Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre.
We got a pair of new posters this week; The first for
IMAX, the second for Dolby. Both are more adventurous than the standard one-sheet, but there’s still plenty of that shiny digital smoothness that’s de rigueur these days. A late addition: New character posters from Japan, on a Spanish website because why not.
Rogue One’s first tie-in novel, Catalyst, came out this week and there are interviews with author James Luceno over at StarWars.com (by our own James) and The Verge (by Andrew Liptak.) You can also check out reviews at Big Shiny Robot and Tosche Station. And finally, if you just want the summary/spoilers/infodump, there’s io9. (Or Chris Taylor at Mashable.)

the style inspiration for K-2SO.

ILMxLAB has a , too. Rogue One tie-in

Warwick Davis’ character.
Lucasfilm dropped 8 new
Rogue One posters on Twitter this afternoon, featuring the primary cast: Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, Chirrut Îmwe, Baze Malbus, Bodhi Rook, K-2SO, Saw Gerrera and Director Orson Krennic. Those Death Star plans sure get around…
