EW Information on Rogue One

The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly has a bunch of information on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. First up, they've officially confirmed that Darth Vader will be in the movie. I'm not sure if that's been unofficially known for a while or who's playing him. EW also posted character bios on the main cast.
  • Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones): A woman with a "checkered past" who's been given the opportunity to run a mission for the rebellion instead of serving jail time. She's described as a sort of Joan of Arc.
  • Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna): A "by the book Rebel intelligence officer." He has a lot of experience in the resistance and the day-to-day reality of fighting a war.
  • Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelson): Jyn's estranged father who is wanted by both sides for the "doomsday information" he possesses.
  • Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen): A follower of the Jedi ways who isn't actually a Jedi
  • Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen): A warrior who's devoted to protecting Chirrut. He supports his friend's beliefs, but doesn't necessarily follow them, preferring a rifle to a lightsaber.
  • Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed): The Rebel squad's lead pilot. He's described as a bit tense and volatile, but the others need him.
  • K-2SO (Alan Tudyk): A security droid described as "the antithesis of C-3PO" and "Chewbacca's personality in a droid's body."
  • Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn): The big bad of the film. He tries to impress the Emporer by destroying rebel troops while simultaneously staying on Darth Vader's good side.
  • Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker): A Rebel veteran who was first seen on The Clone Wars TV series. He's described as being on the edge of the Resistance, with everyone sort of worried about him.
Catch the full issue this Friday.
