With 2016s Star Wars Celebration day 1 coming to an end in the UK today, we take a look back on what was the most anticipated panel this year: Rogue One – A Star Wars Story.
With our alarms set and live stream links loaded and ready we sat back and were truly transported to what can now be called one of the first unique looks at the inter-galactic war! Hosted by the beautiful Gwendoline Christie, the panel started out like none other.

Showing off the many characters and incredible set pieces and effects, Rogue One is sure to captivate the audiences this coming Winter! For more Star Wars news be sure to keep a close eye on our feed – nerd out!
