Last year the world eagerly awaited in anticipation as STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS arrived in theatres late 2015. Now it’s time for ROGUE ONE to make its debut. Yes, the much anticipated STAR WARS spin-off is in theatres NOW!
Taking place before Episode IV: A NEW HOPE, ROGUE ONE centers around Jyn Erso and a group of unlikely heroes to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. So yes, that means everyone’s favorite movie bad guy, Darth Vader, is back in this movie!
The cast includes Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, and Forest Whitaker. The film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, and Simon Emanuel, executive produced by John Knoll and Jason McGatlin, and co-produced by John Swartz and Kiri Hart.
To say I’m excited is an understatement. THE FORCE AWAKENS went absolutely beyond my expectations. Therefore I cannot wait to see how ROGUE ONE presents itself on the big screen! Trust me, this Star Wars fan is more than ready to head to the movie theatre this weekend…
