First shot of brand-new Star Wars stormtroopers from Rogue One

Rogue One is set to be the first "spin-off" Star Wars film that doesn't operate in the new trilogy. The story is set before the events of A New Hope, and should give us some insight into how those Death Star plans made their way to the rebellion.

Rogue One star Donnie Yen posted the above image of what appears to be new stormtrooper helmet designs on his Facebook, although the images have since been deleted. "I am the force and I fear nothing… " he wrote by way of explanation. "Going to put this in my company’s display room."

So what's up? We know that different stormtroopers have different helmets depending on their job, so this could be the first hint about what environments we'll see in the 2016 film.

Let's speculate together!
