The wait is almost over. We are just a few weeks away from the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and in the last few days it has become very apparent that the promo campaign for the first ever Star Wars standalone movie is in full swing. Today, Empire Magazine revealed 6 various Rogue One character covers from their latest issue. They were also kind enough to send us a brief excerpt from one of the interviews in the magazine. Read on for the details.
Today is actually the official start of the Rogue One promo tour. Right now, director Gareth Edwards, together with Felicity Jones and Diego Luna are in Mexico doing a special promo event, where they will not only answer questions and talk about the movie, but will also screen the first 20 minutes of Rogue One to the audience! How cool is that?

Today, Empire magazine revealed 6 covers with the new heroes from the Rebellion, from their special Rogue One issue that will be releasing this Thursday, 24th November in the UK. The new issue includes interviews with director Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker and Riz Ahmed.
Empire also sent us a brief excerpt from one of the interviews exclusively to SWNN:
John Knoll: “Part of the appeal of the story is that this is a dark time when people are fighting and dying and engaging in acts of bravery without the benefit of Force powers. These are ordinary people who feel they have to do something about the evil that’s happening in the universe.”
And here are the 6 covers:
