Jyn Erso and her rebel crew in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

‘Rogue One’ Re-Release Date, Locations, Tickets, Format, and More

The world is looking out for me specifically in that it has been announced that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is re-releasing back to theaters in IMAX, and good, it’s what she deserves. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was originally released in December 2016 and brought us into the holiday season with fresh tears for Star Wars’ Rebellion and a whole new set of characters to fall in love with. One of those characters was none other than Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor, who is getting his own series on Disney+ in Star Wars: Andor.

In preparation for the release of the character’s prequel series, Star Wars: Andor, the film that brought us all the emotions over Cassian and his life is coming back to theaters across the country, and this is one event you’re not going to want to miss because who doesn’t love rewatching Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and just crying about it? But on top of that, the release also includes a look at the upcoming Star Wars: Andor series!

Where can you see the ‘Rogue One’ re-release?

The film is being released in select IMAX theaters across the country—so yes, you can expect it to be the IMAX format version of the movie—and the theaters will also provide audiences with a sneak peek at Star Wars: Andor, but it also means that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has joined a long history of Star Wars re-releases. That’s good, because frankly, the movie didn’t get the praise it deserved and continues to get now, after the fact. It wasn’t hated, but it has seen something of a resurgence online as fans revisit the movie and praise the story of the rebels fighting to take down the Death Star and what they’re willing to do to get there.

Currently, there are no specific theaters listed for the event, so check your local listings to see if any theaters near you are participating, and we’ll keep you updated here when information on specific theaters is available. (Personally, I set an alarm on my AMC Stubs account for when tickets are going on sale so I can get them and see which theaters near me are taking part in the re-release).

When is the ‘Rogue One’ re-release date and Where To Buy Tickets?

The re-release is happening on Friday, August 26, according to Fandango, which is a little less than a month out from when Andor will be hitting Disney+ on September 21, 2022. It is going to be interesting to see the film in a theater in the summer because I know I, at least, have a very distinct memory of it with the Christmas season, so it will be interesting to see how I feel coming out of a theater crying while wearing shorts. Tickets are expected to retail online through AMC and Fandango.

Why is the ‘Rogue One’ re-release date?

Outside of releasing a sneak peek of the series, it is also just nice to have a re-release of something like Rogue One, which is the only bit of screen time we’ve had for Luna’s Cassian Andor prior to the Disney+ series, to remind us why a character like Cassian has inspired so many fans of Star Wars.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters on August 26th as part of its re-release for Andor and I can’t wait to sit in a theater and sob yet again over Cassian, Jyn, Chirrut, Baze, and Bodhi once more.
