Fans of the popular American epic space opera franchise created by filmmaker George Lucas, "Star Wars", are now excited about the release of the latest George Lucas-inspired film, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story". The ticket sale for the movie will start next week on Monday in the United States, which was announced by film company Lucasfilm.

As stated in an article by the Los Angeles Times, the first one thousand people to buy tickets in person at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood in Los Angeles, California will get a free Rogue One poster. This poster, designed with the word "Hope", can only be obtained for a limited time period in Hollywood.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the ticket sale will start at midnight Eastern. However, timing of the sale will depend on the individual retailers. Rogue One will be showing in theaters on the 16th of December and is the first stand-alone movie in the popular franchise. Lucasfilm and its parent company, the Walt Disney Company will be holding back the early sales of the film's tickets in North America, which was the opposite of what happened last year, when they sold the tickets for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" during mid-October.

The new Star Wars film is different from the earlier films, which tells one story over the extent of a trilogy to rewind the storyline's chronology and introduce new characters. The setting of Rogue One is before the events that occurred in the first Star Wars film, "Episode IV - A New Hope".

The cast will include actress Felicity Jones, who will play the role of main protagonist Jyn Erso, a Rebel spy turned into a military leader. The story will be about Jyn Erso's quest to steal the blueprints for the Empire's new super weapon, the infamous Death Star. Jones will also be accompanied by actors Diego Luna, who will play the role of Cassian Andor, a veteran Rebel agent, Alan Tudyk as the security droid K-2SO, and Jiang Wen and Donnie Yen as Blaze Malbus and Chirrut Imwe, citizens of a planet occupied by the Galactic Empire who eventually joined the resistance.
