“It comes down to a group of people who don’t have magical powers who band together to bring hope to the galaxy,” Edwards said last year.
The director revealed that the film is in same universe as of the Star Wars chapters, but the only difference is that it is a self-contained story.
“It’s exciting because we’re not held to anything and we can be a bit more free, more brave,” he said to Flicks and the City. “And what’s great about everyone at LucasFilm is that they’re encouraging that.”
Further, the director also revealed that Rogue One is one of the films related to the Star Wars universe but outside of the main franchise. Other such films will be prequel based around both Han Solo and Boba Fett.
The film is slated to release on December 16 in the UK and US and expected to become one of the year’s biggest box office hits after Star Wars: The Force Awakens collected over $2bn (£1.4bn) worldwide.
