Rogue One - 1 day to go

This is the final day before Rogue One is released (at least here in the UK). Yes folks, TOMORROW we get to see this film.

We are almost there, tonight it is Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith to take us to the point where Rogue One bridges the gap between that and Episode IV: A New Hope. I love Revenge Of The Sith. For all the faults of The Phantom Menace and Attack Of The Clones this is where we get back on track. What's not to love about Anakin's final embracing of the dark side and Order 66 and it's implications. ...and we can just ignore the NOOOOOO bit!

We are still getting TV spots and here's the latest batch. They appear to have got out of sync as one of them refers to five days!

The Star Wars Show ran a post red carpet show with some behind the scenes stuff

Here's the cast of Rogue One picking their favourite characters

Nerdist News ran this excellent Toy Smash mashup of Rogue One and Rudolph!

Last but not least, and not Rogue One related but it is Star Wars, we have a wonderful acapella take on Duel Of The Fates (one of my favourite pieces of John Williams' Star Wars music).

...and thus endeth the countdown. Just after midnight tonight I will be seeing Rogue One at Cineworld in Bexleyheath.

See you on the other side for a blog post containing my initial thoughts (and NO SPOILERS I promise).
