You might remember that I was lucky enough to interview the cast and see part of Rogue One last December on the Rogue One Press Event. It was an amazing time and since I had only been able to see about 28 minutes of the movie, I went to theaters opening day to watch the rest of it. The movie blew me away. In fact, I went back and saw it a second time. Since then I have been anxiously awaiting it’s release so that I can watch it again…and again…and again. Well that wait is finally over! TODAY, March 24th, you can watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere! And then on April 4th, you can pick up the Blu-ray Combo Pack or DVD in stores and online!
To help celebrate this incredible movie, myself and a whole bunch of other amazing social media influencers are getting together to battle it out on Twitter! That is right, this Sunday, March 26th, we will be watching Rogue One together digitally and colliding forces! I am part of #TeamRebel (the best team, am I right?) and we will be taking on #TeamEmpire. Be sure to follow me, @MarvelGoddess24, as well as the other influencers – you don’t want to miss any of this! We will be starting promptly at 4pm PST / 7pm EST so make sure you are signed in to your Disney Movie Anywhere account and ready to go at that time! I refuse to give spoilers so I will only say – if you have not seen this movie yet, you need to. It does not matter if you have not seen the other Star Wars films, and it doesn’t even matter if you are a Star Wars fan or not – this is a MUST SEE!
