Star Wars Rogue One Reveals New Stormtroopers And They Look Completely Different
It's know as a Death Trooper.
Not only are we buzzing at the news that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is going to feature none other than Darth Vader, but we’ve also got a first look at the new Storm Troopers… and they look like they mean business!
Decked out in top-to-toe black, the new breed are known as Death Troopers (because of course they are), and can be seen strutting their stuff in a pair of new images that appeared online this morning. Leaner looking, with lighter, less bulky armour, they look like a fearsome foe for our pals at the Rebel Alliance.
In case you’re not up to speed on all things Rogue One, the new film will be set immediately before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, and will follow the exploits of a group of Rebels scheming to steal the Empire’s blueprints for the Death Star. Felicity Jones will star as swashbuckling pilot Jyn Erso who will be going up against the film’s Big Bad, an Empire military genius played by Ben Mendelsohn.
It’s also been revealed that Vader will be involved, although probably not in a leading role. It looks as though the Empire is well and truly back in black…
