We recently found out that Mads Mikkelsen will be playing Jyn Erso’s (Felicity Jones) father, Galen, in Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and now we have our first official look at the actor in full costume. The image was revealed during the Star Wars Celebration Rogue One panel in London, where the film’s new poster was also unveiled along with a brand new trailer featuring a glimpse of Darth Vader.

We don’t really know much about his character (it’s a Star Wars movie, after all), but he does look pretty cool. Hopefully the trailer will shed some light on his role in the movie, but for now you can check out the image below. What do you guys think?

Galen Erso

Following the foundation of the Galactic Empire, a wayward band of Rebel fighters come together to carry out a desperate mission: to steal the plans for the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the Emperor’s rule.

Directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen and Alan Tudyk. The movie opens in theaters on December 16, 2016.
