Rogue One: First Image Of Jimmy Smits' Bail Organa Revealed

Star Wars: Rogue One Sizzle Reel Includes Bail Organa Appearance

In this December's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, viewers will get reacquainted with Darth Vader, but the Sith Lord is not the only returning character in a film that mainly consists of fresh faces. For Attack of the Clones, actor Jimmy Smits was cast as Bail Organa, a senator in the Republic and the future adoptive father of Princess Leia. Fans know Organa as one of the leaders of the rebellion, helping form the Alliance in the waning days of the Clone Wars. Given where Rogue One takes place in the franchise timeline, some believed that Bail could be featured in the spinoff.

A behind-the-scenes sizzle reel that premiered at this summer's Star Wars Celebration in London seemed to include a brief glimpse of Smits in the role, and back in August the actor all but confirmed that he had a cameo in the anthology film. Now, moviegoers can get their first real look at Bail Organa from Rogue One thanks to a new image.

Twitter user @IndianaJedi snapped a photo of the latest Us Weekly issue, which includes a preview of Rogue One. An official picture of Organa is part of the magazine's coverage, showing Bail in a more subdued wardrobe when compared to the outfits he sported in the prequels. You can take a look at it below:
