- Story Text:The stage was set for the 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' premiere on Saturday (December 10) with a to-scale X-Wing fighter and a red carpet that overtook two blocks of Hollywood Boulevard.
People dressed as their favorite Star Wars characters stood waiting for the diverse cast which includes Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed and Donnie Yen.
The film tells the story of the opening crawl of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and explores how a small group of Rebels manage to successfully get hold of the plans for the planet-destroying Death Star.
Jones plays Jyn Erso, the daughter of the man who designed the star base who is corralled by the Rebellion to lead a team to get hold of the plans.
'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' begins its global theatrical rollout from December 14.
