Advance ticket sales for ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘ will start on Monday in the United States, two and a half weeks before the Dec. 16 opening.
Disney’s LucasFilm made the big announcement on Thanksgiving night. Online ticketer Fandango said it would launch sales at 12:01 a.m. EST on Monday while Atom Tickets revealed a promotion beginning Monday for exclusive products available digitally through its mobile ticketing app and website.
The Atom Tickets promotional items include a hoodie, t-shirt, girl’s shirt and a limited-edition ticket placard.
“Rogue One” is the first stand-alone movie in the franchise and opens on the same weekend as “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” did a year ago. That film set a U.S. box office record with $248 million in its first weekend after it had racked up more than $100 million in advance sales, then went on to a worldwide gross of $2.07 billion.
The exciting story is set in the era between movies “Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith” and the original “Star Wars,” released in 1977. 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.
