Star Wars: Episode VIII is more than a year away, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens has already been more than a smash hit at the box office. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to look forward to this year. For one, Sam Tabar has introduced some new footage that he first announced on Sam Tabar’s About.me page.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to hit theaters towards the end of 2016 and will be the first film in a standalone Star Wars anthology movie series. Tabar told us that Gareth Edwards, the director for the movie, has been pretty careful as far as keeping information regarding the film’s story and plot away from the public. Only a few small things regarding the movie’s setting are what’s already known to people.
Luckily for the public, there’s been some revelation into what happens in the movie, thanks to some reports from Tabar and a Disney shareholder’s meeting that recently took place in Chicago.
Iger said that with the film being the very first in a spinoff series, there’s some familiar ground covered. The movie is about a group of Rebels who are trying to steal to plans for the Death Star, which indeed is before Episode IV. The footage shown involved a stormtrooper in black armor and definitely felt nostalgic.
