    Yeah, resistance can easily stand in for rebels. But I wonder if there's anything to them preferring that word these days. Or maybe they don't, and I'm reading too much into it. I certainly don't recall Lucasfilm using the word "resistance" so much in the past.

    In this time period Rebels would be appropriate I think.

    I was right about the guy with the white straps being donnie yen (or his stand-in) the character might be blind so the glasses he is wearing could be costume or just a sun was bright that day thing (a rare day in england!)

    I keep thinking of A Christmas Story whenever I hear the new name.

    Hopefully, they call them "Anthology" movies when they're collected.

    "Cushing is a pivotal plot line as he was the one to create Darth Vader and there's a whole back story that will come out"

    Giving them the benefit of the doubt, they might mean "the one to COMMAND Darth Vader," which was true in ANH.

    OR, they're just making crap up. There's that possibility as well.

    I've made the shadows brighter for more details on the black helmet.

    I'd guess the black helmet belongs to that pilot here:

    Loving the look of this, they do seem to be less secretive about Rogue One compared to TFA , I hope this continues, and I hope all the Death Star commanders are British with suitable mutton chops too, so there!

    I can't find the helmet pic on Donnie Yen's Instagram. Did it get taken down?

    You think they'll have Biggs and Wedge in this movie?

    Some have speculated that Biggs might be in it, due to the resemblance of one of the actors. But I don't think the timing works out right.

    Well, I hope so. We only got like 5 minutes with him in the Original, and would love to know more about him. Specifically, regarding the Imperial Academy that Luke mentions in ANH. And as Beru says, "Most of his friends have gone." I'm assuming to the Academy. And it would be fun to see how they ended up with the Rebels from the Academy.

    We kind of went in circles around it a little while ago, but starwars.com appears to be treating the deleted Biggs scenes as canon. Why give special treatment to those scenes? Don't know. So if those scenes are mysteriously canon, then I don't think Biggs could be in Rogue One since he'd still be in the Academy.

    Needless confusion.

    I haven't read up much on Rogue One yet. I kind of want it to be a surprise, but I love speculating. If it is indeed about stealing the Death Star plans, then the movie should end maybe days before ANH. I wonder if Biggs defected to the Alliance right when Alderaan was destroyed, or a few days before.

    Yeah, nobody knows anything yet, except that it's about stealing the Death Star plans. We're currently in the "who is related to who" phase of speculation... mandatory for a new Star Wars movie. :p
