A Hi-Res Look At The User Interfaces of ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’

With the now infamous release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, taking the worldwide theatrical universe by storm, WIRED have provided us with a few new Hi-Res Shots of Rogue One’s Gorgeous user Interfaces. Check them out!


Many elements come together to form the look and feel of the original Star Wars trilogy. With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is set nearly moments before the original 1977 Star Wars film, capturing that look and feel was essential. The film, the first of the new standalone films in the franchise from Disney and Lucasfilm, was tasked with trying to look as similar to the original 1977 source material as possible.


In order to recapture that aesthetic blueprint, a visual effects team over at BLIND LTD was back at it again designing even more background on-screen interfaces for Rogue One. The creative agency recently designed user interfaces for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and other major blockbuster films.


You’ve got to check these out!

May the force be with you….

    The sets were amazing in this movie. Really wanna watch it again in 1080p…

    • January 16, 2017 at 9:51 pm

      Or even in 4K !

      • January 16, 2017 at 10:07 pm

        Disney really needs to get to releasing 4K blurays.
        I’ve skipped buying TFA until they bring do.

          Yeah me too. I read that a 4K version of ANH exists. Gareth Edwards said he’d seen it as prep for R1. Considering this year is the 40th anniversary I’m thinking they will re-release all films (or at least the original 3) in 4K, along with TFA and Rogue 1.

          I live in hope !

          • January 16, 2017 at 10:38 pm

            When 4K OT/ANH releases, it will proudly sit alongside my copies on beta, laserdisc, dvd, and bluray 1080p. 😉

          • January 16, 2017 at 11:02 pm

            I’ve got VHS copies of the OT (pre-Special Edition) if you want to complete that collection 🙂

          • January 17, 2017 at 3:41 am

            Me too. I love the VHS copies

          • January 16, 2017 at 11:07 pm

            Awesome ! So used to people complaining about the double dipping of Lucas with his films, but you’re all in man ! Great stuff ! Sort of like a technological museum for your grand kids 🙂

            Re: Sort of like a technological museum

            hehe …yeah, when last moved I found a box with some Hi8 (aka “mini beta”) movies. Not many were released, but was supporting the format.

            4k –
            Really excited for 4K bluray. Basically getting to a point where were close on colour/HDR & resolution of what’s shown in many digital theatres.

            And Pablo Hidalgo of Lucasfilm said on twitter “Who said (Gareth) it was unaltered version?

  • January 16, 2017 at 9:42 pm

    love the attention to detail.

  • January 17, 2017 at 1:49 am

    I get the feeling that Abrams saw the OT once or twice on TV in edited form while Gareth is the real deal as evidenced by the attention of detail in his film.

    • January 17, 2017 at 2:53 am

      Abrams kept the graphics pretty utilitarian as well and it was 30 years later. I guess you missed all his SW talk, even before he was asked to direct.

      • January 17, 2017 at 6:32 am

        Arec didn’t notice the FO star destoyer either (lol)

    • January 19, 2017 at 6:05 pm

      eye roll

  • January 17, 2017 at 4:14 am

    Isn’t that an FO star destroyer ? Look at the top tower, not diamond shaped but flat in the rear view

    • January 17, 2017 at 7:28 am

      Yep. FO TIE fighter too it seems.

    This is WAY to cool. My favorite moments of this movie have been how close they were to the extended universe! I am so happy with the results.

    Of course, the computer graphics in the original 1977 movie look primitive today simply because computer graphics WERE primitive back then. But it is interesting how they have managed to recreate somewhat the same style without it coming across as painfully crude; instead it now seems deliberately “austere” and “utilitarian”, and has become part of the Star Wars aesthetics.

    • January 17, 2017 at 10:59 pm

      The idea that other cultures used colorful displays, like Naboo, Coruscant and Trade Federation/Seperatists. That was the thinking about that, they were more into cosmetics of look.

      • January 20, 2017 at 5:23 pm

        Yeah the assumption that the Empire’s tech somehow represented the entirety of tech across the galaxy.

        Of course, there’s also the notion that the more sophisticated tech was diminished when the Empire took reign.

  • January 17, 2017 at 1:53 pm

    Can’t wait to see Force Awaken’s tech blasting the hell out of each other. Just seeing that Finalizer’s outline… I think I need to see R1 again to satiate my need for fleet battles. 😛

    Someone needs to look up the meaning of the word “infamous.”
