Releasing on December 16, 2016 is Star Wars: Rogue One (aka Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), which will be the first theatrical Star Wars spin-off.
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.
Star Wars: Rogue One is directed by Gareth Edwards (2014’s Godzilla) and is based on a screenplay written by John Knoll, Chris Weitz (Cinderella), Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli) and Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation).
The film stars Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler), Diego Luna (Blood Father), Ben Mendelsohn (Killing Them Softly), Forest Whitaker (Bloodsport), Donnie Yen (Ip Man 3), Jiang Wen (Let the Bullets Fly), Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) and the voice of Alan Tudyk (Firefly).
During a recent Reddit AMA (see photo), when asked his thoughts on being involved with Star Wars and how Rogue One will compare to the other movies, Donnie Yen replied with: “I think it’s really flattering to be the first Chinese actor in the Star Wars universe and I have full confidence Rogue One will do extremely well, because the force is with me.” Yen also promised the New York Daily News that he’ll do more than just pilot an X-Wing in the film, leading fans to believe he’ll display his martial arts prowess over the course of Rogue One.
