Watch a 30-minute Q&A with the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story cast and director


Facebook employees getting all the perks

Last week, the cast members of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and director Gareth Edwards dropped by Facebook HQ in Menlo Park, CA for a Q&A and special 28-minute preview of the film.

A video of the Q&A session was posted on Facebook by Facebook. In attendance are Edwards, Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed, Alan Tudyk, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, and Donnie Yen. There are no spoilers and not too many details about the movie, but they seem like swell bunch of people (though a little tired). After the Q&A is a brief new featurette.

Give the Q&A and featurette a watch below.

So how was that actual footage that was screened like? So far, the reactions from people who saw the footage have been positive. In addition to select Facebook employees, a number of film writers, critics, and industry people got to see the footage at Skywalker Ranch.

Over at Collider, they've compiled a number of Twitter reactions from people who saw the footage, including from EIC Steven Weintraub. Here is all you need to know.


Reviews for Rogue One (the entire movie) should start showing up late this week. May the Force be with us.
