Ever since we first saw footage from Rogue One, we’ve wondered about that one mysterious shot of a kneeling hooded figure in front of a mysterious, foggy tube. Who’s the figure? What’s inside the tube? Well, a seemingly innocuous featurette for the movie might have provided the answer.
We attended the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story press event over the weekend, ahead of the movie’s release next week. Spoilers were, of course, verboten—but fun facts and random nuggets were not. Here are five things we learned from a pair of press conferences featuring various members of the cast and crew.
If you had to choose the perfect single outfit to wear the rest of your life, one of these wearable sleeping bags from Selk’bag just might be it.

Using a lightsaber as a flashlight is a bad idea, given you can easily lop someone’s arm off while flailing around in the dark. But ThinkGeek’s new five-and-a-half-foot tall lightsaber floor lamp is a much safer way to find your way around in the dark, since it only relies on LEDs to glow.
Today is a sad day for Star Wars fans, with the ending of Marvel’s excellent Darth Vader comic from Kieron Gillen, Salvador Larrocca, and Edgar Delgado.

Even the phone in your pocket is capable of playing cutting-edge games, so why would you go back to Simon, that simple four-button electronic memory game that was popular back in the ‘80s? Because there’s a new Vader-shaped Star Wars version that plays the Imperial March, that’s why.

Darth Vader’s all-black suit, complete with cape, is one of the iconic bad-guy outfits. But could you actually piece all the necessary components together, and if so, how much would it cost?
Obi-Wan Kenobi being struck down—and becoming more powerful than we could possibly imagine—is a defining moment in the Star Wars saga.
