Were you disappointed by the news that Star Wars: Episode VIII will be delayed? Well, you can still take a trip to a galaxy far, far, away this December with the release of Rouge One – the first of several “standalone” Star Wars films.
“‘Rogue One’ takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope and will be a departure from the saga films but have elements that are familiar to the Star Wars universe,” says Kathleen Kennedy. The movie is set before the events of A New Hope and follows a group of Rebels as they set out on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.
The movie stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk, Mads Mikkelsen, Jiang Wen, and Forrest Whittaker.
