We are officially just under one month away from the December 16, 2016 release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and tonight comes the release of a new featurette that goes behind-the-scenes with filmmaker Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and the crew. With this film taking place outside of the episodic “Saga” and just prior to the events seen in 1977’s original Star Wars: A New Hope, this is a fascinating look at a new story that takes place inside a very familiar world…
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is directed by Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, with Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker. Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel are producing, with John Knoll and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” opens in U.S. theaters on December 16, 2016.
