Be on the lookout from some monstrous Rogue One Easter eggs!
We’re still a little over two weeks away from the big-screen release of Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm‘s highly-anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but director Gareth Edwards has already shared some hidden Rogue One Easter eggs!
“In Saw’s cave, there are some cave paintings,” Edwards revealed on today’s episode of The Star Wars Show. “One of them is of the creatures that were in my first film, ‘Monsters.’ Then there’s some MUTOs from ‘Godzilla.’ I didn’t ask for it. I just came in one day and saw it.”
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story tells the tale of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. The film takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope.
Felicity Jones (Inferno, The Theory of Everything) leads the cast as Jyn Erso alongside Mads Mikkelsen who plays her father, Galen Erso. Diego Luna (Milk) stars as Captain Cassian Andor with Donnie Yen (Ip Man, Blade II) as the blind spiritual warrior Chirrut Imwe, Jiang Wen (Let the Bullets Fly, Devils on the Doorstep) as his heavily armored best friend Baze Malbus,, Alan Tudyk (Firefly) as the droid K-2SO, Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler, Four Lions) as the Rebel pilot Bodhi Rook, plus Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) as Saw Gerrera, a character first introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline, Mississippi Grind) as the film’s main antagonist, Director Orson Krennic.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set for release on December 16, 2016.
