Yesterday, Empire revealed their first Rogue One cover for their upcoming winter preview issue (here). Today, an alternate cover focusing on the film’s main villain (Director Orson Krennic) has been revealed.
The cape-loving Krennic is flanked by a couple of Death Troopers, the elite all-black stormtroopers who act as personal bodyguards to the Galactic Empire’s high command. These guys aren’t to be trifled with.
For Star Wars geeks, the new issue of Empire will be an essential purchase, with unprecedented access to the slightly-less fearsome director Gareth Edwards and his cast (including an in-depth look at Bistan, the ‘space monkey’).
It’s available in all good and Imperial newsagents from Thursday August 25 – though subscribers to Empire will be getting their copies a little earlier than that, with their own limited edition cover, to be revealed soon. You can get ahead of the curve by subscribing toEmpire here. Rogue One, meanwhile, blasts into cinemas from December 16.
Empire promises yet another new cover (this one only available to subscribers) to be unveiled on Monday, so stay tuned for that next week.
