Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is an upcoming American epic space opera film directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy, from a story by John Knoll and Gary Whitta. It will be the first stand-alone Star Wars Anthology film. Set in the Star Wars universe some time after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and shortly before the events of the original Star Wars, the story will center on a group of Rebel spies on a mission to steal the design schematics for the Galactic Empire’s new weapon, the Death Star. It will star Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Jiang Wen, and Forest Whitaker.
The film is produced by Lucasfilm and will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Principal photography began at Elstree Studios, near London during early August 2015.
Rogue One will be released on December 15, 2016 in the UK before preview screenings in the US start that night before going nationwide on December 16, 2016.wikipedia
Rogue One is a movie crammed with fan service, but when fan service is done this well, there’s little to complain about and much to adore. The film offers a remarkable recreation of the original Star Wars’ world, while exploring this universe from a different, edgier perspective than is the norm. It also expertly delivers thrills, tension and genuine stakes, despite the audience’s prior knowledge that the movie’s central mission will be a successful one. Gareth Edwards has shown, with the first “Star Wars Story,” that these spinoffs can have plenty of life in them, adding even more excitement to Star Wars’ huge modern resurgence.
