Rogue One: A Star Wars Story new toy line-up has been officially revealed via a series of fan-made stop-motion shorts.
The short has a light-hearted tone reminiscent of the Lego Star Wars series. The first episode titled, Go Rogue: Chapter 1, stars Jyn Erso, Captain Cassian Andor and his imperial droid K-2SO, as they hunt for the Death Star plans.
Tongal, a video production company, were assembled to write, direct, and produce original, fan-made stop-motion shorts using the new toys from the Rogue One movie. The short will start a global UGC contest that asks fans to share their own “Rogue Stories.”
The contest begins on September 30th and invites fans to create their own video content set in the Star Wars universe. Winning entries will be chosen by a panel including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story director Gareth Edwards. Winners will be invited to Lucasfilm in San Francisco to attend an exclusive screening of Rogue One, and see their winning entry on the big screen.
