Star Wars has been a part of my life since it first arrived in theaters, May 25, 1977. I didn’t know, at the time, that my children would be bigger fanatics than I was, but here we are 2016 and they are. When Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrived in theaters, my oldest couldn’t wait to share the details with me. Now we’re awaiting ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY.
My youngest called me at work to tell me ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY was coming up and to make sure I wrote down the date–in pen–so we could see it. It’s December 16, 2016, if you want to write it down too.
Lucasfilm’s ROGUE ONE, which takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, tells the story of unlikely heroes who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star.
ROGUE ONE: A Star Wars Story Cast
