July 15th, 2016 by Andrew McCarroll Comments


With the second ever edition of Star Wars Celebration Europe in full swing. The three-day event will be packed full of panels, screenings, cast and crew signings, workshops, merchandise stalls and exhibits. There is surely to be a few nuggets of information on Episode VIII to come out.

But front and centre at this event is the next movie to be released in the Star Wars Universe. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story promises to be a more gritty, boots on the ground type of Star Wars movie that we haven’t seen before and Rogue One director Gareth Edwards and Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm delivered not only the beautiful first poster of the new movie but also a behind the scenes celebration reel, similar to what JJ Abrams released ahead of The Force Awakens.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is scheduled for release on December 14, 2016

Andrew McCarroll never quite built on the dizzying career heights that he hit at 6 years old, when as a member of the “Ghostbusters” he would charge his neighbours to remove any unwanted spectres. Now retired from slaying spooks, he spends his time obsessing over superheroes (especially Batman) and devouring shows like Dexter, Game of Thrones and Archer in a manner that would make Galactus proud.
