Updated With Screenshots and a Potential Spoiler. New Rogue One Featurette Shows Off New Star Wars Aliens.

A new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story featurette has hit, highlighting a few of the many alien costumes that the people at Lucasfilm made for the film.

 

 

For those of you who are averse to spoilers, I should warn you – you might not want to look at the background around 0:20-0:21. We will include an image with that at the end of the article if you want to have a closer look.

 

 

 

 

Several screenshots from the featurette (click on the images for bigger versions):

POTENTIAL SPOILER!

 

 

And here’s a closer look at what appears to be disfigured Anakin – or, perhaps more accurately, an armorless Darth Vader. They even have a concept art of him.

One can only wonder why they would need this in Rogue One. Perhaps it’s for that mysterious “bacta tank” scene in the first trailer.

It’s obvious that the Imperial Guards are guarding someone important. Perhaps it’s the dark lord of the Sith, while he is resting/regenerating? Share your thoughts with us below.

    Wonderful! I’m absolutely loving the amount of promo we’re getting for Rogue 1. I am a happy fanboy!

    It might be the bacta tank vader! he has a mask to breath as Luke had. But then I’m really wondering, who’s the hooded character? The royal guards look towards the tank so I really thought that was Palpatine in it. I really hope they didn’t make Palpatine go on his knees in front of Vader. Palpie is the big boss he can’t do that. But then… WHO?

      It could simply be Krennic in the robe. Perhaps he’s wearing a robe at first for some reason?

      Or perhaps that is Vader in the cloak without his armor, about to get into an empty bacta tank. From the image shown he would have his mechanical parts removed before going inside.

        but you access that tank by the roof isn’t it? that must be in another room. Also, what are the royal guards doing there?

    It could be Vader in the tank. That smoke or mist behind the tank looks strangely like the smoke Vader walks out of when he walks toward Krennic. Is this the room he walks out of? Is Krennic waiting for Vader to come out of the Bacta Tank?

      I think you hit the nail on the head.

    If it is Darth I think they may have gone too young….he looks like hayden more than sebastian and this film is only 3 years or so before ROTJ

      Maybe bacta can have some unnatural regenerative effects that wear off between each bath.

        I suppose you could say the lightening bolts from the Emperor could have had a scarring effect on him just like palatine had in ROTS

      It would be a nice cameo.

    I didn’t think Moroff would survive Jedha. #MoroffLives

    Do not underestimate the power of toy merchandising: Lego Star Wars have in line for 2017 a set named “Darth Vader Transformation”, with nothing more revealed so far.
    Could it be just a thing back from Ep.III or something we’re gonna see later at Rogue One?

    If you think it through, it makes sense that Vader would need some form of treatment to live on.
    This adds an interesting dimension to his character, a bit like seeing the ‘creature’ inside a Dalek. I don’t think this will diminish him in any way.
