Rogue One Art & Star Wars: Episode VIII Director Rian Johnson & Chewbacca on set

It was exactly 39 years ago today on May 25, 1977, that Star Wars: A New Hope was released in theaters. To celebrate the anniversary, Lucasfilm released a new episode on YouTube of The Star Wars Show. In the show's cold open, you get Chewbacca on the set of Star Wars: Episode VIII acting very much like a millennial (or, frankly, non-millennials at this point, too) by enjoying images of himself on his iPad. This is when director Rian Johnson ambles by. What the show also reveals is the first art for the upcoming Star Wars Celebration Europe event, and this includes new art from the upcoming Rogue One. To check out the incredible art, enjoy these hi-res images SlashFilm received from Disney. These includes a closer look at the Death Troopers, a new model of AT-AT, and a very cool mash-up of The Force Awakens and Rogue One in a single poster. 

Here's the The Star Wars Show. Enjoy:
