From the band of rebels, to the TIE strikers, TIE fighters, U-wings, and X-wings flying above the of waters of new planet Scarif, it’s an impressive glimpse into the Imperial war machine.

And it’s a poster that makes one thing clear: Felicity Jones is the main the star of this film. But does Jones’s massive face, intertwined with Darth Vader’s mug across the Death Star, hint at something more? Could her character, Jyn Erso, have links the Dark Side? Or does this artwork merely symbolise her need to steal the Death Star plans?

Hopefully we’ll get more answers when the new trailer comes out. But before that, you better remind yourself of the first…
