ROGUE ONE: WATCHERS ON THE WATER!
Enjoying the lush scenery of the tropical planet of Scarif (a world sounding very much like the eerily named Skaro, the terror pepper pot Daleks' home world of DOCTOR WHO!) is not one of the priorities of an Imperial Stormtrooper squad soon engaging in shoreline battle with a group of equally battle-hardened, newly arrived Rebel Commandoes, led by Sergeant Jyn Erso, in the finale build-up to ROGUE ONE, and a superb image captured on location in the real-life lush climes and beaches of the Maldives-a new place that location visiting fans will surely lap up.
Director Gareth Edwards humorous story about the bewildered Maldives army playing Stormtroopers was one of the great highlights of CELEBRATION 2016's ROGUE ONE panel. Indeed, we hope they get a thrill seeing themselves on screen in the STAR WARS universe come December.
New ROGUE ONE trailer incoming on US TV and online from Thursday 11th August, 2016.
