No Rogue One Toys At Toy Fair
Jay Cochran - February 03, 2016
While I don't consider this a surprise since we haven't even seen an actual trailer for the upcoming Rogue One movie, Hasbro this afternoon sent out official word to the media that they will not be showing off any product for the movie next weekend at the New York Toy Fair. As we saw with The Force Awakens products, the studio is very tight lipped when it comes to Star Wars and the earliest we might see something for this movie is San Diego Comic Con.
Rogue One will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla) and written by Oscar nominee Chris Weitz (Cinderella, About a Boy, Antz). The first actress cast is Felicity Jones, who garnered an Academy Award nomination and critical acclaim for her performance in The Theory of Everything. The idea for the story of Rogue One came from John Knoll, an Academy Award-winning visual effects supervisor and chief creative officer at Industrial Light & Magic. He will executive produce along with Simon Emanuel (The Dark Knight Rises, Fast & Furious 6) and Jason McGatlin (Tintin, War of the Worlds). Kathleen Kennedy and Tony To (Band of Brothers, The Pacific) are on board to produce and John Swartz (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) will co-produce. The film starts shooting this summer in London and is due for release on December 16, 2016.
