Battle Test: A Nissan Rogue 360 VR Experience Feels Genuinely Star Wars

Disney confirmed in their press release Jyn Erso & Cassian Andor will return in the Rogue One sequel, which attendees at the Star Wars Celebration 2017 might get a sneak preview of. But until we got that piece it wasn't really a character yet.

One of the things that really intrigued me about Rogue One was the opportunity to introduce new characters who brought no preconceptions with them.

When a featurette begins with the actual schematic that the Rebels used to pinpoint the weakness in the Death Star they would later so famously exploit, you know you're in for a treat.

Fresh from Lucasfilm/Disney emerged an announcement on Friday that surprised absolutely no one - yes there will be a sequel to Star Wars: Rogue One.

Even if you have already seen the film in theaters, the Blu-ray features on Rogue One are enough material to make the film feel completely fresh.

And yet the new film had to resist improving too much on the old; as co-production designer Neil Lamont notes, you should be able to watch Rogue One and its "sequel", the original Star Wars, back to back without a jolt.

"When it came to our film, it went so late with that shot, trying to get it right, that Kathy (Kennedy, producer) took it down personally, on a laptop, and showed her", he recalled. Star Wars' first official stand-alone movie was a smashing success at the box office, and amongst the fans and critics as well.

US crude oil exports went to more destinations in 2016
In the United States in particular, shale oil drillers have seized the opportunity to ramp up output and exports. May West Texas Intermediate crude rose 84 cents, or 1.7%, to settle at $50.35 a barrel.

A New Hope was made for about $11 million - a fair bit of change in 1977, but dwarfed by the $20 million spent that year on Close Encounters of the Third Kind or even the $14 million on The Spy Who Loved Me. For numerous actors who got to interact with the character, it must have been one hell of a moment.

Perhaps inevitably, BB-8 was a little less excited by Rogue One than by the movie in which he stars.

A lot of Star Wars fans love Alan Tudyk's K-2SO.

Disclosure: FanSided.com was provided with a complimentary copy of Rogue One on Blu-ray for the purposes of this review.

In Rogue One, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. Instead, the film's unpredictability sets it apart and above its most recent predecessors.

Good luck, and may the force be with you! "As you probably know, shooting things in 360 is very challenging.... there's a lot of reasons not many people do this because shooting a live-action plate and then putting film-quality visual FX in 360 is an incredibly hard process".
