Last week I shared a little epiphany I had about Mads Mikkelsen's Galen Erso in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It would appear I'm not the only one who's been thinking that Mikkelsen's mysterious character is going to be an absolutely pivotal part of what makes Rogue One special. Lucasfilm, after keeping the character shrouded in relative mystery throughout the initial leg of the film's promotional campaign, has just released a stunning new character poster for him.
Check out the new character poster, shining a spotlight on Mikkelsen's Galen, the father of Felicity Jones's Jyn Erso, in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story right here:
You've got to love the way the blueprints for the Death Star are projected onto his face. Even with what little we know about the character, we know he plays a crucial part in the design of the deadly, dreaded jewel of the Empire's weapons of mass destruction.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, directed by Gareth Edwards (and Tony Gilroy!), and featuring the acting talents of Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, with Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker, comes out on December 16.
