In addition to Entertainment Weekly's Rogue One covers revealed this week, the outlet shared fifteen new stills from the Gareth Edwards-directed film, and they offer new looks at Darth Vader, the main cast, and new characters. The release of this new batch of photos coincides with the latest EW's Rogue One-centric issue focused that will be released tomorrow. I'm including some of the photos and a few descriptions from EW below:

Look who's back. The man in black. With the Empire at peak strength, so is Darth Vader (again voiced by James Earl Jones.) But this time he is a threat not just to the Rebels but to Imperial special weapons director Orson Krennic (played by Ben Mendelsohn.) "There are military men who are interested in a really effective piece of military hardware, and Darth Vader is a little bit beyond that, right?" says Kiri Hart, Lucasfilm's head of story development. "He's tapped into something on another level, on a spiritual level. So, that's part of the fun of Vader in the context of the Imperial Military. He's got a broader perspective."

After an encounter on the storm-stricken world of Eadu, Jyn Erso rides aboard a starship with two key members of her commando squad: the blind, Force-faithful warrior monk Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen) and his pal and protector, the machine-gunner Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen)
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released in theaters on December 16, 2016.
