Jyn Erso’s soon-to-be iconic helmet is left discraded on the beach in the latest look at the first ever Star Wars spin-off. Over the weekend, Disney debuted this new one-sheet for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story during a Russian Comic-Con, while also announcing the movie’s Russian rating. While the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has yet to give this Star Wars spin-off an MPAA rating, this poster reveals a Russian rating of 12+, which is essentially the equivalent of PG-13 in the United States. It won’t be too much of a surprise when it is officially given a PG-13 rating in the U.S. And, perhaps, it won’t be too surprising if this poster is prophetic in showing us Jyn Erso’s ultimate fate.
The poster first surfaced on Twitter, though it isn’t known if there will be an official domestic version of this Star Wars poster. It does have quite the unique design. The poster doesn’t feature any of the main characters from Rogue One, but it does feature Jyn Erso’s Rebel Alliance helmet floating in the ocean, creating the shadow of a Rebel Alliance logo in the water’s reflection. The one-sheet also features a number of Stormtroopers and AT-AT walkers as they advance tehir attack.
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.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in U.S. theaters on December 16, 2016, going up against Warner Bros.’ Collateral Beauty, starring Will Smith.
