"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" kicks off a good ticket presales as it comes close to the figures of last year's "The Force Awakens". Online ticket sellers are calling this the biggest first day presales of the year.

EW and MovieTickets.com report that tickets are running at 90 percent of day one presales for as compared to "The Force Awakens", which is a really good turnout since "Rogue One" is technically the second "Star Wars" film this year. MovieTickets further added that ticket sales for "Rogue One" outnumbered "Suicide Squad", "Deadpool" and "Doctor Strange".

On the other hand, some reports have gone out that Fandango crashed due to the demand for tickets that lead to longer waiting time up to half an hour. Deadline reports that the site technically did not crash, they reported that their checkout "waiting room" was established to cater the customers as quickly as possible. They also added that despite some intermittent slowdown, their partners have been continuously adding new show times for the scheduled opening weekend.

It is to be noted that when "Star Wars Episode VII" was released last year, it had been a decade since the last "Star Wars" movie and more than three decades since the "Return of the Jedi". Nevertheless, the ticket presales then were at a whopping 95% tickets sold and set records on both Imax and MovieTickets on first-day presales.

"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" is the first "Star Wars" stand alone film directed by Gareth Edwards. It is set in a time of conflict with 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. According to Heroic Hollywood, the Aurebesh translation on the poster of "Rogue One" says "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." It premieres on December 16 in the United States.
