Rogue One World Premiere Reactions 12/12/2016
At JediRobeAmerica.com, we are loving the reactions coming in from the Rogue One world premiere last weekend. It looks like we won't be disappointed on Friday:
Actor Rainn Wilson described it as AMAZING!!! Super fun & exciting, while fellow actor Wil Wheaton wrote: The last time I loved a Star Wars movie as much as I loved #RogueOne, it was 1977. Film-maker Kevin Smith, a long-time Star Wars obsessive, was equally positive, tweeting that Rogue One is unbelievably wonderful! ... An excellent chapter in the @starwars Universe!
Rogue One, directed by Gareth Edwards and starring Felicity Jones and Mads Mikkelsen, was conceived as the first in a string of standalone films, connected to but outside the main narrative of Episode films. (Star Wars Episode VIII, directed by Rian Johnson, is due for release in December 2017.) The next standalone, or anthology film is an as-yet untitled story about a young Han Solo, pencilled in for 2018.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is released on 15 December in Australia and the UK, and on 16 December in the US.
