If you’ve spent the Thanksgiving holiday unable to concentrate on enjoying time with your friends and family because you had no idea when tickets for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story would go on sale…we’re here to ask if you’re okay. No judgments here. We love you. Really. Are you okay? For real.
But now, you can rest easy because we now know when Rogue One tickets will be available.
According to the official Star Wars Twitter feed, you’ll be able to purchase your tickets on Monday, November 28, 2016. No exact time of the day is specified, but I do remember that tickets for Star Wars: The Force Awakens were available in the evening in North America the first day they went on sale. I also remember every ticketing site on the internet crashing under the deluge of people trying to snag tickets, which hopefully won’t happen again.
UPDATE: Tickets are going on sale at 12:01am Eastern Time, which means in Central Time they will be on sale at 11:01pm on Sunday night, so plan accordingly.

Rogue One will open in theaters on December 16, 2016.
And honestly, there’s not much more to say here. If you’re a regular reader of /Film, you know we’re excited to see Rogue One and have devoted thousands of words to picking apart every trailer and dissecting the newly released prequel novel, Catalyst. In some ways, I remain more interested in these spin-off Star Wars movies than the core saga – the possibilities really do seem endless.
However, we should note that Atom Tickets has teamed up with Disney to offer their users a little something extra. If you buy tickets through their site or mobile app, you’ll have the opportunity to also purchase some exclusive Rogue One goods, like a hoodie, a t-shirt, and a “limited-edition ticket placard.” If that sounds like the kind of thing you’d like to spend your money on, you can follow that link above. You can preview the available goods yourself in the gallery below.
