I was excited when Force Awakens was announced. I cried when the first teaser was released. I cried again when the next teaser was released. Now, there is even more good news for Star Wars fans thanks to Rogue One, which was recently announced and has already begun principal photography.
Rogue One is a new film which exists within the Star Wars universe and takes place prior to Star Wars: A New Hope. Starring Felicity Jones and directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One “tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star.” The film is slated to release on December 16, 2016. The film will cover the ground-war perspective and will show new angles of a world that Star Wars fan know and love. I can’t wait!
