We Head to ILM for a Look Inside Rogue One

We also see photos taken in 2005, when Edwards for his 30th birthday visited the Tunisia set that served as Luke Skywalker's childhood home in the 1977 movie.

The untitled Rogue One sequel joins an exciting slate of new adventures in the Galaxy Far, Far Away coming to fans in the coming years. "When the writer came on board, and the director came on board, we had a head start", Lucasfilm Executive Creative Director Doug Chiang says in the featurette.

With humor and depth, Rogue One proves that their is hope yet for the Star Wars Disney spin-offs to come.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story director Gareth Evans has called the spin-off film a "love letter to Carrie Fisher" in a new interview. We were expecting a more animated response to the highly memorable Darth Vader scene towards the end of the film, and at least a nod of recognition to the legend who shows up at the very end.

Anyway, you can pick up Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Blu-ray and DVD right now. While still very obviously a science fiction film, the lack of Jedi makes Rogue One feel a little more gritty and a little more grounded.

"I've decided I want to do, just now, not only do I wanna do Kaytoo, but I also want to do Cassian's voice", Tudyk said. What we're doing with the entire movie is all building to that one moment [of the Death Star plans being handed to Princess Leia] where we hand the baton to her, to go off and make that film that inspired us all as kids. It was taken to mean that this will actually happen and that Star Wars: Episode 8 will be the movie where it will unfold. I'm not sure I'd go as far as believing Disney strictly mandated that Abrams and Edwards cast leads who were black, female, Hispanic, Asian, etc, but neither film featured a white male in any lead roles, and it's interesting that movies from the more light-hearted genres like sci-fi are leading the charge for diversity. From the comics I would try and copy, like, Admiral Ackbar.

Rogue One comes out on Blu-Ray, DVD and On Demand today. Battle Test's 360-degree experience immerses users into the final battle of Rogue One while also showcasing the 2017 Nissan Rogue and its safety features.

If you're a hardcore VR gamer, you'll be disappointed: this is simply a 360-degree video, so there's not much interactivity other than the ability to look around as your Nissan Rogue is attacked by Imperial forces. If you'd rather wait and see what treasures the Blu-ray rebellion uncovers with the next go-round, then I certainly don't blame you.
