One of the biggest anticipated films of the year is nearing its release date. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is released in cinemas on 15th December in the UK and is tipped to be the biggest movie of the year.
The Star Wars franchise shows no signs of slowing down as this is the first in the Star Wars Anthology Series; a new series of stand-alone spin-off films.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story takes place just before the events of 1977’s Star Wars in a period of civil war. The Galactic Empire rules the galaxy and is putting the finishing touches to their ultimate super-weapon, the Death Star. The Rebellion plan to steal its plans in order to destroy it. The team of Rebel Alliance features Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Ben Mendelshon, Forest Whitaker and Donnie Yen.
Gareth Edwards directed the film and has described is as a grounded, war-based movie, where normal people have to come together to fight the Empire as opposed to relying on the Jedi or the Force.
