On today’s buzz we have new photos and brief clips from the Rogue One press tour in Japan; several good interviews with cast members and director Gareth Edwards; more images from the preparation of the Rogue One World Premiere and more.



First we start with several interesting interviews from the last day.


Felicity Jones appeared on Access Hollywood:




And another interview with Collider.






Uproxx got a chance to speak with the awesome Ben Mendelsohn:


Did you have to audition, or were you asked?

Gareth. No, it was Gareth Edwards.

And then you needed approval from Lucasfilm?

Well, you know, that’s the way the casting goes. I mean, that would always be the way the casting goes and it wouldn’t matter who it was from anyone in the world.






EW has a new inside Rogue One video this time about K-2SO:






Another Alan Tudyk interview, this time with Fandango.







And more on K-2SO.

K-2SO is now available in the Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes game.






New Star Wars short story is coming in SW Insider 170. It will tie in to Rogue One and Catalyst!






Some photos from the preparation of the Rogue One world premiere in LA.








We’re less than two months away from Star Wars Half Marathon – The Light Side and there’s still a chance to join the Rebellion!

    That Ben Mendelsohn interview is pure gold. I need to see some more films with him.
