Empire’s ‘Rogue One’ Subscriber Cover Features Death Star Plans

Rogue One banner

With only a few more weeks to go until the film arrives in theaters, Empire Magazine has revealed the subscriber cover for their latest Rogue One: A Star Wars Story-themed issue, featuring the in-depth plans for the Death Star.

The upcoming movie follows Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones), Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and the rest of the rebels that were tasked with stealing these same plans. We already know that they’re going to succeed in their mission, but Rogue One will tell the untold story of how this ragtag crew actually managed to get them.

This isn’t the first that we’ve seen these plans, but there’s obviously nothing too revealing here. The cover itself even features some text in Aurebesh (the writing system for the most used language in the Star Wars universe), but I doubt that translating it would reveal anything significant about the movie.

You can check it out below.


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.

Directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One stars Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, Diego Luna as Captain Cassian Andor, Ben Mendelsohn as Director Orson Krennic, Donnie Yen as Chirrut Imwe, Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso, Alan Tudyk as K-2SO, Jiang Wen as Baze Malbus, Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera, Riz Ahmed as Bodhi Rook, Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma and Jimmy Smits as Bail Organa.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in theaters on December 16th.
