Star Wars Rogue One Stormtrooper Helmet Revealed
Actor Donnie Yen posts image of new Star Wars head gear.
Following the first official image from the upcoming Star Wars spinoff Rogue One last week, another image has emerged, this time presented by actor Donnie Yen.
The Hong Kong action star posted a picture on Instagram that showcases three helmets, together with the message "I am the force and I fear nothing… Going to put this in my company's display room."
The middle helmet is clearly that of a classic original trilogy Stormtrooper, while the black one bears some resemblance to those worn by TIE Fighter pilots. The third helmet is entirely new to the Star Wars universe, but all three clearly evoke the era of the classic original films.
Rogue One is the first of the planned spinoff films that will run alongside the ongoing saga movies. Set before the original 1977 Star Wars, it's directed by Godzilla's Gareth Edwards, and will focus upon a group of mercenaries who are hired to capture the plans to the Death Star.
The film is due for release on December 16, 2016, and also stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, and Mads Mikkelsen.
