ROGUE ONE: UP (TOO) CLOSE AND PERSONAL!
Her quest to send the Death Star plans to the orbiting Rebels almost complete, Jyn Erso is suddenly blocked by the arrival of a TIE fighter ready to extinguish her life, in this now iconic image from one of the early Rogue One - A Star Wars Story trailers, which also gave fans the greatest, highly detailed shot yet of a Classic Trilogy movie TIE fighter.
Behind the scenes, it's been alleged that the TIE was created only as a 'Wow!' moment for the early trailers, part of Rogue One's ever-evolving production process, eventually to be replaced by one of the all-new TIE craft over Scarif's skies created by Doug Chiang.
