It’s the first Star Wars movie to exist outside the saga of trilogies so anticipation is high. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” goes back to a key moment in the Rebellion, how the plans for the Death Star were stolen. They couldn’t have chosen a better moment to explore.
“Save the rebellion, Save the dream.”
As they say on TV, “Shut Up and Take my Money.” Watch the new TV spot for yourself and see if you’re not convinced:
December 16th is still more than a month away, but it will be here soon. Until then meditate on the ways of the Force, young padawan and try to decide if you’re going to see Rogue One in 3D, Real 3D, or IMAX?
