The first anthology film in the Star Wars universe released a few months ago and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was a hit at the box office.
While presented as a standalone story, the film served as a quasi-prequel to the events of the first Star Wars film ever made, Episode IV: A New Hope.
Director Gareth Edwards and the production team had established framework in which they could create the narrative and designs, but the team was surprisingly crafty and imaginative in their approach.
Speaking at an event for Gosh Comics in London on Friday, members of the concept artist and costume design teams spoke with fans during a question and answer session to promote the release of the new The Art of Rogue One book. Hyperdrive collated the information (via SWNN).
The group attending the event included Matt Allsopp, Vincent Jenkins, Adam Brockbank, Will Htay, Jon McCoy, Glyn Dillon, and Dave Crossman.
The team provided many new details about the film’s production and design work, revealing key insight into one of the best new additions to the ongoing Star Wars saga.
