Having finally broke the box office record over the weekend and with no sign of The Force Awakens losing the pace it is setting, its time for a brief moment to take a moment at the next film in the franchise, the first standalone film Rogue One, which will see a bunch of spies, trying to get their hands on the blueprints of the original Death Star, paving away for the events of A New Hope.
Actor Ben Mendelsohn who plays villian Moff in the upcoming film, remained coy about his role but talked about his hopes for the film.
“I wouldn’t want to spoil anything for anyone on those levels…But you can expect something pretty special, I’d like to think. I was in the audience for number seven and it was delightful. It exceeded my wildest hopes and dreams for what it might be. It’s a beautiful film. So we’ve got something to reach for and that’s a good thing.”
Director Gareth Edwards is currently filming the much anticipated movie which is due to hit cinemas on December 16th
