rogue one rating

In news that shouldn’t surprise anyone, the MPAA has officially rated Rogue One PG-13 for “Extended sequences of sci-fi violence and action,” which sounds about right. Thanks to Star Wars News Net for brining this one to our attention.

This should be taken with a grain of salt, but Star Wars News Net is reporting that the world premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be held on December 10, with early U.K. screenings beginning on December 13. This comes our way via a Twitter account with no obvious connection with the film, so trust this as much as you care to.

Rogue One director Gareth Edwards recently spoke with Disney Rewards (hooray for corporate synergy?), where he revealed which character, in his humble opinion, steals the movie:

Alan had to wear this rather silly-looking outfit with dots on it while we were filming, and he always felt like the uncool guy on the set surrounded by actors in super cool costumes. I would tell him, ‘Alan, don’t worry. You’re going to steal every scene you’re in.’ And I was right. Once we put the robot overlay in, he was fantastic. He brings a lot of humor to the film.

Look, it should come as news to anyone that Alan Tudyk walks away with any film that has the good taste to cast him, even when he’s playing a CGI robot.

The new Star Wars Galactic Atlas won’t be available in the United States until after Rogue One‘s release, but it is already available in Europe and Star Wars News Net managed to snag some pictures of the pages dedicated to Jedha, a key Rogue One location. You can follow that link to check out the images for yourself (the art alone makes this look like a book worth owning), but there are two key takeaways. We already knew that this small desert moon was a holy site for believers in the Force, but these pages confirm that the Empire has been using Jedha to mine kyber crystals (the source of power in Jedi’s lightsaber). It is also revealed that Saw Gerrera, the Rebel extremist played by Forest Whitaker, has set up shop in ancient tomb, where he is surrounded by the literal remains of the dead.

We’ve known that Rogue One DLC was coming to Star Wars Battlefront for a little while now, but now we know exactly when. Season pass holders will get to re-enact the Battle of Scarif on December 6, 2016, with players battling on the grounds of the Empire’s top secret construction yard and in the skies above. Those fighting on the side of the Rebels will have the chance to play as Jyn Erso while those fighting the Empire will be able to control Orson Krennic.
