With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story now only a month away from release, promotion on the movie is upping the anti. Similar to what happened for The Force Awakens, a new 360 experience video has been released. In it, you can look around as your X-Wing (equipped with an R2 unit) goes on a recon mission, and discovers something they didn’t expect to see. You can check out the clip below.
The immersive experience was created by ILMxLAB, and sets up the plot for Rogue One, acting as a short prequel film.
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,’ an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
The film stars Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, Diego Luna as Captain Cassian Andor, Ben Mendelsohn as Director Orson Krennic, Donnie Yen as Chirrut Imwe, Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso, Alan Tudyk as K-2SO, Jiang Wen as Baze Malbus, Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera, Riz Ahmed as Bodhi Rook, Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma and Jimmy Smits as Bail Organa.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in theaters on December 16th.
