This is what we got during the panel with producer Kathleen Kennedy, director Gareth Edwards, starring Mads Mikkelsen, Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker et alea, learned about the latest addition to the Star Wars universe.

1.. Rogue One is a very different kind of Star Wars movie

According to topproducente Kathleen Kennedy is also exactly the reason that Gareth Edwards, the director of the science-Monsters (2010) and Godzilla (2014), was attracted. ‘With his camera on the shoulder’-guerillastijl this is the most immersive Star Wars ever, ” says Kennedy. Edwards was quite impressed by his encounter with Star Wars creator George Lucas. ‘A new Star Wars movie for the first time to George Lucas show was probably the most surreal experience of my life’, told the director, who also admitted in his youth, just about every day to Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope from 1977 to have looked at.

2. Chirrut goes.

Chirrut whom? Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen) is one of the two Chinese characters in the gang of rebels where Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso the plans for the Death Star are going to steal. That was already known. However, what we still could not know is that Chirrut that his life will be forfeit. It was Donnie Yen’s colleague, Jiang Wen for a painful cramp in the face of producer Kathleen Kennedy made when he went to Yen be and in very cute English said, ‘when this guy dead, I believe in Force.’ Whoops!

3. The droid you are looking for, is called K-2SO.

No star wars without the droids, and the list with the most famous number-letter combinations from the universe may in addition to R2-D2, C-3PO, and BB-8 are now also K-2SO (say Kaytoo) can be added. It is a gereprogrammeerde Imperial Droid with a mind of her own who is played by Texan actor Alan Tudyk. He let us know that he is already on the contempt of his colleague Anthony Daniels could count because that would be all seven movies long, literally, in the shiny skin of his character C-3PO creeps while Tudyks K-2SO just from CGI is built.

4. Darth vader is back.

In the new teaser trailer of Rogue One was the chronic asthmatic villain is yet to see, but because somewhere, the tones of the Imperial March to hear were, was already press speculation about the presence of Lord vader. That he is indeed involved, was at the Star Wars Celebration confirmed by director Gareth Edwards who advised him that he had a spontaneous nerdgasm got James Earl Jones, the man behind the most famous mask in the history of cinema, with the voice the word ‘power’ is expressed in that great echoing and oh-so-recognisable basso profundo of him.

5. Mads Mikkelsen has something invented.

The 50-year-old Dane – you know him as Hannibal on tv or from movies like Casino Royale and Jagten – play in Rogue One Galen Erso, the father of the main character Jyn Erso. When a while ago it became known, was basically all the information that your ‘need to know’status far exceeded and Mads Mikkelsen was in London, not exactly talkative. The only thing that the former Bond villain this time solved about his character is that of a scientist, is that something very special has been invented. Is it the Death Star? It is the lichtzwaarden? It Is a vlooienkam for Chewbacca? Everything Mikkelsen about lost wish, is that it is something so fantastic and beautiful that it changed the universe.
