As part of the lead-up to Star Wars: Andor on Disney+, Lucasfilm is re-releasing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in 150 IMAX theaters for a limited time!
While word of Rogue One returning to theaters leaked out last week, today Lucasfilm is making it official. Star Wars fans in North American (Canada and the US) will be able to enjoy Rogue One: A Star Wars Story back on the big screen for a limited time.
Starting next Friday, August 26th, the movie will re-launch in 150 IMAX theaters for one week. Tickets are already on sale, so you can check and see if a theater near you is participating! Even better, the screening will also include exclusive new footage for Andor.
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.

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.
