It’s getting closer and closer and closer! ROGUE ONE: A Star Wars Story is hitting theaters on December 16thIn RealD 3D and IMAX 3D and I. Cannot. WAIT. I hope to have my new Star Wars tattoo by the time this one drops, but if I don’t, I’ll just dress up to go to the theater. Wait. I’m going to do that anyway. Yes, I’m THAT kind of Star Wars fan.
They dropped a new featurette tonight. Basically, this is what happens when you dream of doing a Star Wars movie from childhood. This is the story BEFORE The story. The story from the opening reel. My heart quickens every time I think of it. December 16th, hurry fast.
