The ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Logo May Have Just Surfaced Online
We still have a few months before the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story debuts (reportedly with Captain America: Civil War), and all we’ve seen thus far is one official cast photo, the title treatment and a few costume photos. And while this isn’t anything too substantial, we may now know what the logo looks like for Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars heist spinoff.
Making Star Wars found these items on sale over at eBay, which appear to be cast and crew gift bags featuring the Rogue One logo:
There are more images over at the auction page, but here you can see that not only does the merch feature the official Rogue One title (which we’ve already seen), but a Rebel Alliance symbol and some words in Aurebesh — a language found in Star Wars canon. A fan translated the line, which simply reads “Go Rogue.”
The bags were commissioned in England, where Rogue One has been filming, which lends further credence to the legitimacy of the logo. It’s unclear if this was specifically for cast and crew only, or if the symbol and Aurebesh tagline will be used in the marketing materials.
Rogue One: A Star Wars story was directed by Gareth Edwards from a screenplay by Chris Weitz and story by Gary Whitta. The film centers on a group of rebels on a dangerous mission to steal the plans for the Death Star, and features Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Forest Whitaker, Ben Mendelsohn, Diego Luna and Donnie Yen.
The first trailer will reportedly arrive with Captain America: Civil War on May 6. Rogue One hits theaters on December 16.
