I seem to have a thing for the bad guys.
Can’t help myself.
After seeing the Rogue One Trailer, one character stood out of the crowd.
Forget the heroes, forget the rebellion.
The guy in the white uniform and cloak was who caught my eye.
This rather cool looking dude.
OMG!! Are we actually getting a Grand Admiral?
Turns out his character is called ‘Director Krennic’ and today, Entertainment Weekly announced a little more information about him.
Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn)
On the opposing side, this villain is an ambitious Imperial apparatchik who intends to use his squad of Deathtroopers to pulverize the Rebel uprising and ascend into the Emperor’s graces – while hopefully avoiding the wrath of his enforcer, Darth Vader. “The bad guy is a lot more terrifying when he’s really smart, and really effective,” says Knoll. “There is a lot of palace intrigue going on in the Empire, with people conspiring to move up the ranks and sabotaging each other. There’s not a lot of loyalty there.”
So! He’s going to be one cool customer and hopefully a villain to get your teeth into!!
And we’ve still got 5 months to wait!!! ARRGH!!!
