“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” debuted in 2016, but LucasFilm will be bringing the film back to theaters this month in honor of the upcoming Disney+ series, “Andor.”
The event will start on August 26, 2022 at 150 IMAX theaters across the U.S. and Canada, and will run for one week.
In addition to a showing of “Rogue One” in IMAX, the night will also include a sneak peek at the “Andor” series.
Tickets are now on sale, and can be purchased via fandango.com/RogueOneIMAX.
About Rogue One
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.
The main cast consists of Felicity Jones (Jyn Erso), Diego Luna (Cassian Andor), Ben Mendelsohn (Orson Krennic), Donnie Yen (Chirrut Imwe), Mads Mikkelsen (Galen Erso), Alan Tudyk (K-2SO), Riz Ahmed (Bodhi Rook), Jiang Wen (Baze Maibus), and Forest Whitaker (Saw Gerrera).
“Rogue One” is a prequel to the first “Star Wars” film ever, “Star Wars: A New Hope,” and the ending literally takes the viewer right into the opening of “A New Hope.”

The Event Poster
The 2022 event also has a new black & white poster that uses a minimal illustration to highlight the story and cast:
“Star Wars: Andor” is a prequel to the “Rogue One,” and it centers on the character of Cassian Andor, once again played by actor Diego Luna.
The series is set during the height of the Empire, five years before “Rogue One,” and shows everything that leads to Andor’s actions in the movie.
Actress Genevieve O’Reilly, is also reprising her character of a young Mon Mothma, as is Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera. The series also stars Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Fiona Shaw, and Kyle Soller.
“Star Wars: Andor” will debut on Disney+ on September 21, 2022, with the first three episodes.
