The time has come – tickets for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story are officially on-sale! Advance orders went on-sale at 12:01am Eastern time this morning, immediately crashing ticketing sites just as last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens did. The first standalone “Star Wars Story” hits screens on December 16, with preview screenings taking place on December 15 (I just hit Fandango for tix for my wife and I – we’ve got the 7pm showing). Get ready to welcome Lord Vader back to the big screen, just as he should be…
