For all those UK Star Wars fans screaming, “Is it December 16th yet?”, great news because it looks like Rogue One is a tiny bit closer than first thought.
With just under two months until the highly anticipated release of Disney’s first Star Wars stand-alone Star Wars movie, the hype machine is reaching peak, with merchandise flying off of the shelves and the recent release of a final trailer.
Now, thanks to the Star Wars UK official twitter account, we now know that fans in the UK will be able to see the movie a full day earlier than those on the other side of the Atlantic. So, readjust those calendar reminders people because the release day is now December 15th.
