New Photos from the Star Wars: Rogue One Set!

Rogue One

TMZ posted several new photos taken from the Rogue One set. It’s the same beach set that we’ve seen last month reported by TheMirror.

The photos contain mild spoilers, so proceed at your own risk.



The TMZ report claims that the photos are new and that filming started last week. But you can see that they are taken from a similar point of view as the photos posted by TheMirror on August 9th. That’s more than a month ago. I doubt they’ve been filming for so long on that beach. Probably it’s another batch of photos that were taken last month, but leaked just now. Keep in mind that these are just my thoughts and I could be wrong. Nevertheless here are the photos.






A crashed ship that resembles the dropship shown at Celebration Anaheim. The wreckage looks old but there are some fresh Stormtrooper corpses lying around:

More corpses on the beach:

A bunker and lots of activity around it:

A close-up on the main players:Cast1 – Diego Luna; 2 – Donnie Yen; 3 – Felicity Jones; 4 – Jiang Wen; 5 – Gareth Edwards. At least I think so. 🙂



For all the photos make sure to go to TMZ.

    Oh Damn. I Hope this movie is as dark as it looks!

    • September 16, 2015 at 2:39 pm

      Speak for yourself. I don’t see why everything has to be super dark and gritty these days. It’s getting to be old hat. The best thing about the OT was that it still had humour and colourfulness as a counter-balance to it’s darker elements. I’d much rather it retain that approach.

      • September 16, 2015 at 5:01 pm

        I believe I did speak for myself.
        Have some manners and try not to be so rude to people you don’t know, Mr poopie pants.

        • September 16, 2015 at 9:17 pm

          No intention to be rude. I fear you may be a little too sensitive to a disagreement…

  • September 15, 2015 at 9:45 pm

    “The wreckage looks old but there are some fresh Stormtrooper corpses lying around”

    Or are they just planking on set? Surely somebody still does that…right?

  • September 15, 2015 at 9:54 pm

    Really liking what I’m seeing so far, out of all the rumoured spin offs this has me most intrigued, the Han film i think is a bad move personally,as for the Boba fett film he needs to be left alone also !

    • September 15, 2015 at 11:10 pm

      Unless it’s an animation film, which is a strong possibility for the directors they chose.

  • September 15, 2015 at 10:07 pm

    Looks like some ROTJ-style Rebel commandos milling around in that bottom photo too.

  • September 15, 2015 at 10:15 pm

    Good call on this looking like the Rebel drop ship revealed at Celebration. I’m guessing the crashed ship will be mostly CG, that the shell we’re looking at is primarily for pyrotechnics.

    So in the first act, the heroes storm an Imperial beach base, steal an Imperial troop transport, and take it back to Yavin IV. That’s my best guess after looking at all the leaked set photos.

  • September 15, 2015 at 10:38 pm

    Oh man oh man oh man oh man

  • September 15, 2015 at 10:54 pm

    awesome. Felicily looks rugged and not pretty. This gonna be a classic world war 2 movie feel like A Bridge too far.

  • September 15, 2015 at 11:11 pm

    I was ambivalent about this movie when I first heard about it. I mean, it’s an okay story, but we already know the ending. At least, I thought we knew the ending.

    What I’ve come to realize is that we know a PART of the ending. If they make us as viewers invest in the characters emotionally… there IS a story to be told. Will they die? Will one of them betray the others? How did they even stumble on the plans in the first place?

    Love the gritty look/feel to these pictures. Can’t wait for this, surprisingly 🙂

    • September 15, 2015 at 11:20 pm

      im gonna skip it…simply dont care about a fanfiction film explaining something that should have been kept off screen

      • September 15, 2015 at 11:40 pm

        Haha, that’s obviously your call. If it’s well done though, wouldn’t you want to see a good movie for the sake of having seen a good movie? Surprising to me that anyone visiting this website would skip any new Star Wars movie, but to each his own 🙂

        And, why do you say it should have been kept off screen? In your opinion, what makes it obvious that this wasn’t something we should get a movie about?

        • September 16, 2015 at 12:43 am

          No, it’s more fun to come to a Star Wars site and bitch about Star Wars.

          • September 16, 2015 at 2:36 pm

            Bitching is all part of being a fan of something. It’s only mindless sycophants who will lap up whatever they’re served just because it has a brand name on it. Otherwise fans have an idea of the direction they’d like to see their franchise of choice go in, and sometime their thoughts and desires will be different to those of other fans.

          • September 16, 2015 at 7:05 pm

            If all you can do is bitch about a franchise, maybe it’s time to find a franchise that does interest you. There are some people here that do nothing but bitch. If Star Wars is that bad now, jump ship.

          • September 16, 2015 at 9:13 pm

            Well, lucky for me that my opinions are reasoned and balanced, and not just about bitching. 🙂

          • September 16, 2015 at 9:16 pm

            The you wasn’t aimed at
            you, mate. Moreso the general collective you.

          • September 17, 2015 at 12:07 am

            Ok, fair enough. 🙂

        • September 16, 2015 at 12:46 am

          While I don’t agree with Steven, and I am definitely into seeing Rogue One, there is something to be said for the imagination amplifying mysteries that the original movies created.. When Obi Wan spoke of the clone wars with that wistful look in his eyes it sounded like such an amazing and cool time for the universe.., almost as if anything Lucas would have done to flesh out that idea could never be enough to match what was brewing in the imaginations of a million 10 year olds. Here we have another mystery and wistful look being made into something that could turn out to be a dangerous over-explaining of lore (see: Midichlorians).

          But I have high hopes for Rogue One and it looks really good so far, and besides there isn’t much room for idealistic sanctity in modern American cinema at this point.

          • September 16, 2015 at 2:34 pm

            Yeah, your first paragraph nails it. It’s why I said up thread that the general lack of pure creativity in these spin off bothers me. I’ll watch this one, but I’ll be honest and say that the Han Solo and Fett movies don’t sound appealing to me. I don’t want to see a recast Solo, and I don’t care to learn anymore about Fett. His mystery was the best part about him. I’d rather they tried an entirely new story in a new time in the same universe.

          • September 16, 2015 at 7:34 pm

            I totally agree…a Han Solo movie is the worst idea I have ever heard and is going to completely backfire in their face’s.I don’t care how good the story is…Nobody wants to see anyone other than Harrison Ford as Solo…and you are spot on about Fett. These movie studio’s logic is mind boggling. Instead of figuring out “WHY” these characters are so popular…all they see are $$$$ and try to pimp that characters out as much as they can. They are too stupid to realize that an Old Republic series would have been the best decision they ever made.

          • September 16, 2015 at 9:11 pm

            I always thought these anthology movies were going to introduce us to the old republic era since Darth Bane was made canon in the clone wars..but instead we’re getting a film that can potentially butcher Han Solo’s character. Wonderful

          • September 16, 2015 at 9:12 pm

            Totally agree, save for the last sentence (purely because they probably don’t even need to rely on that – albeit, it would be a great era to vidualise).

      • September 16, 2015 at 2:19 am

        Hmmm… so The Force Awakens is a fanfiction too, in your logic…

        • September 16, 2015 at 1:50 pm

          from the derivative story to the joy killing information about star killer base(death star 2.0) yes i would say that force awakens is shaping to be a fanfiction film

        • September 16, 2015 at 2:30 pm

          Force Awakens continues the story, whereas Rogue One is about filling in the blanks for a story that already exists.

  • September 15, 2015 at 11:12 pm

    Looks awesome, dark and dirty. Do you guys think the secrecy is the same as in TFA? 😉

  • September 15, 2015 at 11:45 pm

    Very cool! The title of the article needs a slight change though.
    “New Photos FORM?”

  • September 16, 2015 at 12:05 am

    I’m might be even more excited for the Spin Offs than for the Sequel trilogy, really. These on-set photos look amazing. Just a side thought, at the back of my head I had this feeling that the second wave of SW movies is gonna way surpass the first features (both TFA and RO). I mean JJ and Edwards are decent directors, but, at least for me, both, Miller/Lord and Johnston have scored way up there with their movies in the last 2 years. Looper is such a fantastic movie and both Jump Streets were equally hilarious and brilliant. Definitely looking forward to these two!

    • September 16, 2015 at 2:28 pm

      Better than the OT? Not a chance in hell.

      • September 16, 2015 at 4:20 pm

        Better then ST, it may be possible.

  • September 16, 2015 at 12:18 am

    I think I’m more excited about RO that Ep. 7, which I fear is turning out to look pretty silly. I guess we’ll see. I have hope that it’s not just another New Hope Clone.

    • September 16, 2015 at 12:34 am

      Out of curiosity, why do you think it’s looking “silly”?

      • September 16, 2015 at 1:13 am

        Because lazer swords and robot characters. Duh.

        • September 16, 2015 at 1:54 am

          ur rite. im dumb

    • September 16, 2015 at 7:23 am

      When you have Struzan, Iger, Daniels saying how amazing the footage is they’ve seen and it’s written by Kasdan who wrote ESB I kind of doubt this film is going to be ‘silly’. If anything it’ll be on par with ESB or greater.

      • September 16, 2015 at 2:27 pm

        Don’t raise your expectations. This is also Abrams, who gave us the atrocious Star Trek Into Darkness and remember that Lucas gave us a New Hope, which told many of us in 1999 that Phantom Menace would be just as good, if not greater.

        Having a particular talent on board is no guarantee of quality. Kasdan has been involved in turkeys before.

        • September 16, 2015 at 4:19 pm

          The Phantom Menace is a greater movie then A New Home, but not better.

        • September 16, 2015 at 6:49 pm

          To each their own…I enjoyed into darkness and have the opinion that J.J saved the Star Trek Franchise from certain death and trekkies are ungrateful jackasses. Both films are beautiful. I mean They are nothing compared to the masterpiece that is Star Trek IV: the voyage home by any means though are they? :p :p :p…… gimme a break dude…Abrams Star Trek movies Blow away almost any Star Trek Film ever made, sorry.

          • September 16, 2015 at 9:16 pm

            I fear your latter sentences are in conflict with the earlier ones. I agree though . TVH is vastly superior to JJTrek. The problem lies in the idiotic attitude that Trek could only be saved with vacuous Transformer style CGI fests. I don’t except that for a minute.

          • September 16, 2015 at 11:41 pm

            I was actually being, ” Sarcastic”. “TVH is vastly superior to JJ’s Star Trek?????????!!!!!!!! bahahahaha. sorry man…but no….no it is not. Saying that would be equal to saying Ghostbusters 2 was a cinematic orgasm of filmography triumph. Dude…I that movie was a campy 80’s movie with a horrible script about them hanging out with a brain fried spock and traveling back in time to capture a whale whose mating call was the key to saving the earth….did you just read that?! think about that for a second. so…..wouldn’t you think..that if they could go back in time…they could have maybe prevented Spock and Kirk’s son David’s death in the first place?? haha…cmon dude…….

          • September 17, 2015 at 12:06 am

            Do you you mind if I ask your age?

  • September 16, 2015 at 12:44 am

    It really is a good time to be a Star Wars fan.

  • September 16, 2015 at 12:47 am

    Also, notice the Endor Rebel Soldier style donut helmets too.

  • September 16, 2015 at 2:19 am

    They aren’t dead. It’s a river ride and the stormies are relaxing. Geez people. Why must you always be so dark! 😛

  • September 16, 2015 at 3:33 am

    Looking great so far! Dead stormtroopers, as we all know, are far more accurate than living ones!

  • September 16, 2015 at 5:56 am

    Really hope they are only in those cheap Scy-Fy movie costumes for this one scene and we see them in their X-Wing uniforms for most of it.

    • September 16, 2015 at 2:23 pm

      I think you’ll find they aren’t X Wing pilots.

  • September 16, 2015 at 6:21 am

    The only thing about this that bothers me is that it looks chitty [cheap + gritty]. But NOT realistic. They don’t look like soldiers or airforce, they look like cheap sci-fi guys put under a grey-green camera filter.

    Sure, it’s “gritty”, but only in the most shallow of definitions.

    Really the problem is it seems this film was written for a marketing commitee.

    Gritty – check,
    Dark muted Nolan-aesthetic – check
    Multi-racial cast – check

    Not one of the things on this checklist are wrong, what’s wrong is that there is a checklist TO BEGIN WITH.

    Gritty is cool when done right [Coen Bros.’ “True Grit” I highly recommend],
    Dark muted is, eh, sorta cool when done right [Joker the Movie feat. batman]
    Multi-racial is cool because humans tend to have different genetics so limiting films to just one gene-pool is super lame.

    But you can’t JUST throw in a bunch of good things all willy nilly and expect the film to make itself. The film still has to be, you know, GOOD. And so far, this art design is just not selling me :/

    • September 16, 2015 at 7:19 am

      That’s how all films and books are made now days. Must comply with a list, tick boxes and make sure no one is offended by feeling left out (PCness). Stories are no longer served only bank balances and minority groups of all kinds. These were things that worried me in the first place about a SW revival.
      PS, look at those troopers around the crash with the stiff, straight poses, hmmm….

      • September 16, 2015 at 2:41 pm

        They went to safe bet. Bob Iger will be killed by Disney stockholder, if a series of new films would flop. Up till 2020, the movies will focus on OT related thing. But after that the franchise must reinvent itself.

        • September 16, 2015 at 4:17 pm

          It will re-reboot itself.

      • September 17, 2015 at 6:07 pm

        PC ness doesn’t bother me, racism is bullshit. Period.

        What I’m referring to is how they’re utilizing their features.
        I’m worried the dark tone is being phoned in. I’m worried the “progressive demographic casting” is being phoned in – i.e, being done to fill a buzzword.
        This is not to say Nolan-dark is bad, it’s just that it must be used wisely, or else you get a film that’s dark [and for some reason exposition-heavy?!] for no good reason, as what happened to Man of Steel, mediocre-ish due to its unnecessary effort to be gritty.
        As far as diversity, I’m not against having a diverse cast, but I’m sensing there is an actual quota of minimum amount of non-white actors – it is the calculation that bothers me.

        My question is: were better actors [who happened to be white] turned away from roles because they really wanted min. of 1 asian guy? Or did the asian guy legitimately beat out other actors to get the part. If the latter, that he was cast for being a GOOD actor, then I will be the first to support him.
        But if he was cast purely for getting a demographic’s money, it reflects poorly on how they’re approaching this project on the whole.

        Let me stress, diversity does not bother me whatsoever, demographic-calculation [maybe at the expense of quality] DOES.
        Diversity should be done more organically, it can’t be done by numbers.

        It is entirely possible I’m mistaken in all of this – we HAVE only seen like, 3 pictures thus far. So file this under the “Potential Worries” category.

    • September 16, 2015 at 9:09 am

      Maybe wait until the film is released before you write paragraphs complaining about it.

    • September 16, 2015 at 2:22 pm

      But we’ve only seen a few pictures. How can we possibly know what the designs look like in toto?

      To be honest, a bigger frustration for me is the stories of these films. The Death Star plans, a Han Solo origin film, a Boba Fett (likely) origin film. These stink of giving fans what they think they want, much like Force Awakens clearly riffs off the aesthetic of the OT and unused designs from McQuarrie and others. This direction of Disney seems to be trying to pander to those fans who were let down by the prequels, and that’s in serving up OT knock offs. But to we really want every blank left by the OT to be filled in? You’d think that the Star Wars galaxy in a huge sandbox to play in and that would allow for so much creativity. But I get the feeling that they consider something truly creative a little too risky at the moment, and I think that’s very short-sighted.

      Still, I’ll ultimately wait until I see the movies to pass final judgement.

      • September 16, 2015 at 4:00 pm

        That’s why the Prequel’s stories are decent: they were risky, sometimes bad connected or explained, but risky and brand new. Their content is awesome, the problem with them is about the moviemaking. Which is the opposite of the Sequels (so far): good moviemaking, bad content.

        • September 18, 2015 at 10:59 pm

          Direct me to the theater you visited to see the new Star Wars movies…

  • September 16, 2015 at 1:12 pm

    Yea are the storm troopers planking or what

    Just a thought, but in A New Hope it is said that Bothans find the Death Star plans.
