Got your cosplay ready? Got your tickets? “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” opens this Friday Dec. 16, 2016 and fans could not be more excited. Some are looking forward to meeting original characters that take a break from the “Skywalker storyline,” and getting the change to explore more of the galaxy. Others are excited for the epic battles in space and a female protagonist.
As if we all didn’t know, it is the first of the “Star Wars” standalone movies and focuses on the group of rebels responsible for stealing the plans for the evil Empire’s deadly weapon.
