The Rogue One goodies continue to roll out as the next Star Wars film nears release.
You can only imagine how it must feel to be an actor or actress cast in a Star Wars movie. “These characters, this story, I grew up with,” actor Diego Luna says in the new featurette that’s hit the net. “It’s like I’ve been preparing my whole life for this.” Rogue One finds Luna playing Captain Cassian Andor, a pivotal part of the team that is to steal the plans to the Death Star.
The amount of people after pre-sale tickets have already been causing headaches for some major sites, which certainly bodes well for Disney. Early projections have the film opening to over $US130 million in the US alone. No question, the film will be a huge hit. As of now it’s just a guessing game as to what the movie’s overall pull will be when all is said and done.
Not long now: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, also starring Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Forest Whitaker, Riz Ahmed, Donnie Yen and Ben Mendelsohn, among many others, will arrive in Australia on December 15 and opens in the US on December 16.
