Rogue One cast has been announced. Rogue One, first film in the new stand-alone Star Wars series, has begun its photo shoots. The movie is being directed by Gareth Edwards. Rogue One release date is scheduled on December 16, 2016.


Rogue One is about resistance fighters who must work to steal plans of the dreaded Death Star. Kathleen Kennedy will be producing the movie. The cast of the movie includes Felicity Jones from “The Theory of Everything,” Diego Luna from “Milk,” Ben Mendelsohn from “Bloodline,” and Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen. Other names in the Rogue One cast are Forest Whitaker, Jiang Wen and Mads Mikkelsen.

While talking about the plot, Kathleen Kennedy said, “Rogue One takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope and will be a departure from the saga films but have elements that are familiar to the Star Wars universe.”

It seems that the Rogue One cast is a stellar one, and the movie is expected to create a lot of stir in the industry. Being the first film of its kind, expectations are high.
