'Star Wars: Rogue One' Centers on Death Star Heist


From Yahoo Movies

On the final day of the Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, one of the newest members of the Lucasfilm family —spin-off director Gareth Edwards — took the stage to talk about joining a galaxy far, far away.

Josh Trank, who was also slated to appear at the panel, was not able to attend. Moderator Pablo Hidalgo said he has been “under the weather.”

Edwards is set to direct stand-alone film Star Wars: Rogue One, starring Felicity Jones, which is slated for release in December 2016. He was able to share more details about the film, including a logline, concept art and a bit of a sizzle reel at Sunday’s event.

The helmer was joined by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and head of development Kiri Hart for the event, held at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Hidalgo revealed that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, which debuted on Thursday, was viewed 88 million times worldwide in the first 24 hours.

But the focus of the panel was the stand-alone films. “We really wanted freedom to do some films that could stand on their own, and tell new stories,” said Hart, who revealed that they’re calling them “anthology films.”
