Un­veil­ing Rogue One

> This in­terquel is the first film in the Star Wars fran­chise that will not re­volve around the main char­ac­ters from the orig­i­nal films

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SUNBIZ -

Star Wars Star Wars Rogue One,

Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope and of­fers an op­por­tu­nity to flesh out the back­story of sig­nif­i­cant char­ac­ters and fu­ture stand­alone films, which will re­volve around Han Solo (“This moves closer to a heist or Western type feel,” said Kennedy) and Boba Fett.

The spin-offs also mean that Lu­cas­film can re­lease Star Wars movies in-be­tween last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awak­ens, next year’s Star Wars: Episode VIII, and the se­quel tril­ogy’s Episode IX closer in 2019. Mean­while, both Dis­ney and Lu­cas­Film have un­veiled a brand-new trailer – ti­tled Trust – which of­fers up fresh clues as to what fans can ex­pect of this space epic. The new trailer shows off a mix of pre­vi­ously-seen footage as well as a cou­ple of new mo­ments that makes it look as though Tudyk’s KS20 will steal the show and in­ject a bit of hu­mour into the film.

Early ticket sales have al­ready be­gun world­wide, with fans more than eager to be a part of the first film to not re­volve around the main char­ac­ters from the orig­i­nal Star Wars films.

Early box-of­fice pro­jec­tions in­di­cate that the film is on track for a huge open­ing.

How­ever, the film isn’t ex­pected to match the US$2.07 bil­lion (RM9.2 bil­lion) The Force Awak­ens pulled in world­wide.

While Dis­ney CEO Bob Iger worked to lower expectations for the film back in Septem­ber, it’s look­ing as though the film will still be enor­mously pop­u­lar in cin­e­mas world­wide. – Agen­cies
