Lego Unveils 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Tease
As last week's teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story revealed, new hero Jyn Erso is reckless, aggressive and undisciplined … and now, thanks to a teaser image from Lego, she's also a real blockhead.
An image posted to Lego's official Facebook page Thursday re-created the first cast shot of Gareth Edwards' upcoming Star Wars spinoff as Lego characters, including Felicity Jones' Erso, as well as the unnamed characters played by Diego Luna, Donnie Yen and Riz Ahmed.
The image previews the look of Lego's Rogue One sets, which were announced at the Nuremberg Toy Fair earlier this year as being scheduled for an October release, two months before the movie itself. This follows a similar release schedule for last year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise, which was released in September ahead of the Dec. 15 release of the movie.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released Dec. 16.
