Yesterday myself and some other pretty amazing bloggers had a Rogue One Viewing Party over on Twitter! We gave away some great prizes and had a blast doing it – all thanks to Disney and Roku! We were given a digital code for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and a Roku stick to watch it on – as well as some other amazing Star Wars goodies. I had seen the movie in theaters, but it is a great film and I had been dying to watch it again. I even made some cupcakes to enjoy while watching it! I hope you joined us – it was a blast!

I knew that our interview with Gareth Edwards, the director of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, would be great from the first sentence he spoke when he walked in, “I just passed Riz and he said they are all so nice!”. Gareth had introduced the 28 minutes of the film that we saw the night before, and I had been really looking forward to speaking with him. The interview did not disappoint.
I feel so lucky that I got to sit down and chat with Riz Ahmed about his role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story while at the LucasFilm Headquarters earlier this month. In case you missed it, he is a Golden Globe Nominee, guys! That means he is super good at what he does – so I was thrilled that he joined the cast of Star Wars. His interview was one of my favorites of the day.
I love a good villain. They are usually my favorite characters in films – especially in Star Wars. Darth Maul, Kylo Ren, & Darth Vader are some of the best villains out there – and I have a feeling Krennic is going to join that list. From the footage we saw of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story already, Ben Mendelsohn, who plays Krennic, is a fantastic bad guy. He is so good at being bad – someone the audience is going to love to hate. I was really excited to sit down and talk with Ben about his role in the new Star Wars.
I was really excited to have the chance to sit down and talk with Donnie Yen about his character, Chirrut, in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. After watching 28 minutes of the film, this was one of the interviews I was most looking forward to. There is one Chirrut scene in particular that we watched where my mouth was likely hanging open the whole time – it was that incredible. I could not wait to pick his brain about his character – and I ended up learning that he had a lot to do with shaping Chirrut into who he is.
The Rogue One interview I was most looking forward to was Alan Tudyk, who plays K-2SO in Rogue One. I adore him as an actor and have loved all of his roles in TV and film. Another one I was really excited for was Mads Mikkelsen who plays Galen Erso (Jyn’s father). Our schedule got moved around when some interviews were running late, so we actually got to interview them together. I knew right away that this would be a really fun interview. I enjoyed my time with these guys – I think all of us did.
Diego Luna, who plays Captain Cassian in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, was our first interview during the Rogue One press trip. The first interview tends to set the tone of the day – and he sure did. He walked in to the room confidently and ready to have some fun. He told us he would hang out with us all day and answer all of our questions. He seemed really excited to talk about his character and about the movie – and that made us all even more excited than we already were.
I am a huge Star Wars fan – in fact my husband and I planned our wedding around the dates for Star Wars Weekend at Disney World. So, of course, when The Force Awakens was announced several years ago, we were super excited. After it blew our minds, we knew that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story would do the same. We were excited to learn about more characters in the Star Wars universe and see just how the Rebel Alliance got the Death Star plans in their hands. When I was invited to San Francisco by LucasFilms and Disney, I about died. I was THRILLED to be selected and could not wait to see who we would interview. We got to chat with a lot of the cast (who are all amazing, so keep checking back for more interview stories) including the female star, Felicity Jones, who plays Jyn Erso. After seeing a little bit of Jyn in the 28 minutes of Rogue One footage we were shown, I was already in love with her. She is a kick ass girl and I could not wait to talk to Felicity about her.
I am a huge Star Wars fan so of course I am beyond excited about all the new Star Wars movies that Lucasfilm is releasing. One that I am actually quite excited for is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. I think it looks incredible! My husband and I have chatted about it at length and we think that it will be the perfect mix of the Star Wars world we know and love – and totally new content and ideas. With a major franchise like this, you have to bring something new to it and I think Gareth Edwards will do just that! Just a couple more months and we will find out for sure – I cannot wait!
I am a huge Star Wars fan and I have been waiting for Rogue One since I found out about it. I am so excited to finally see it in just a few short months (December 16th to be exact!). My husband and I will, for sure, be seeing it the first day it is out – quite possibly at the midnight showing! I think that it looks great, and I cannot wait to see what Gareth Edwards (director) has in store for us. The official trailer was just released during the Olympics and WOW! It looks incredible. I don’t want to give much away because I want you to watch it for yourself, but the very last second – AH! I screamed out loud when I saw it. This Star Wars Fan Girl can’t wait for December.
