ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY Set For IMAX Re-Release With Exclusive ANDOR Sneak Peek

Ahead of the 3-episode premiere of Andor next month, Disney/Lucasfilm is re-releasing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in select IMAX theatres on August 26. Check out the official press notes...

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is returning to theatres later this month for a limited IMAX run ahead of September's Andor premiere, and the re-release will include an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming Disney+ series.

Disney has announced that Gareth Edwards' dark adventure in the galaxy far, far away, which many fans consider to be the best Disney-era Star Wars movie, will be re-released in select IMAX theatres starting August 26th.

Rogue One introduced us to Diego Luna's Cassian Andor, the Rebel fighter who joined Jyn Erso on her suicide mission to steal the Death Star plans, leading to the destruction of the original planet-killing Imperial space station.

Check out the new IMAX poster for the movie below.

Of course, Cassian and the rest of Jyn's team perished at the end of Rogue One, so Andor will be a prequel story charting the young saboteur's rise through the ranks of the rebellion. We're not expecting many other characters to appear, but Forest Whitaker's Saw Gererra did show up in the most recent trailer.

Disney didn't put out a new IMAX trailer for Rogue One, but you can check out the one that debuted when the movie originally hit theatres back in 2016 below, along with the official press release.

Lucasfilm announced today that IMAX will be showcasing the feature film “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and exclusive, special footage from “Andor,” Lucasfilm’s newest, upcoming series for Disney+, in 150 IMAX theaters across the U.S. and Canada for one week beginning on August 26. Tickets are on sale now at participating IMAX theaters: https://www.imax.com/RogueOne and at fandango.com/RogueOneIMAX.

The IMAX release of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Lucasfilm’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” has garnered over $1 billion at the worldwide box office since its release in 2016. The story follows a group of unlikely heroes, who, in a time of conflict, band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” was directed by Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, with Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker. Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel are the producers, and John Knoll and Jason McGatlin serve as executive producers. The story is by John Knoll and Gary Whitta, and the screenplay is by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy.
