If you are hungry for all the Rogue One hints you can lay your hands on, the Jimmy Kimmel Live special is a must-see. When a show is live and the guests aren’t scripted, secrets are bound to be “accidentally” spilled. More than that, though, the Rogue One cast members are about to be officially inducted into Star Wars lore. Not only will they be famous simply for being in Star Wars (in fact, they already are). They will be remembered forever as portraying the new characters in Disney and Lucasfilm’s first live action standalone Star Wars film. Now is a good a time as any to get to know them.
Below is the plot synopsis for Rogue One:
"From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes 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. In theaters December 2016."
The Rogue One: A Star Wars Story special on Jimmy Kimmel Live airs on December 9th on ABC, at 11:35 pm ET.
Rogue One premieres in theaters in the U.S. on December 16th. Tickets are available for preorder today.
