UPDATE 2! European Theater Says They Will Start Selling Rogue One Tickets at the End of November


Ten days ago we told you about a local cinema in San Diego which announced that they will start selling tickets for a special advanced screening of Rogue One on November 7 (their link is no longer working). This made us suggest that the rest of the theaters will probably also start selling the tickets on the same day. It’s already November 7 and there is still no official word on this, just a few more theaters selling tickets, but again for an advanced screenings. Now, a new listing on a European theater chain revealed when they will start selling tickets for Rogue One. Could this be the worldwide date? Read on for the full details…



November 7, 2016


Twitter member @kenobi_domi noticed an interesting message posted by the Twitter account of the Swiss cinema verkehrshaus.ch. Here’s what he sent us:




For some reason the Facebook link didn’t work for us (it’s probably region locked), so Kenobi_domi clarified:




So according to this big European theater chain, the tickets for Rogue One will start selling at the end of November. Again this date could be strictly specific to this theater so until any official word is released, treat this as just one possibility.


You probably remember that a few days ago ABC announced that they will have an exclusive look at Rogue One on Thanksgiving Day, November 24. This seems like a good opportunity to announce the ticket sales as well. This date also matches with the announcement from the Swiss theater. November 24 is exactly 3 weeks before Rogue One hits theaters in Europe. Some (including myself) might think that this is a bit late, especially in comparison to The Force Awakens, but everything is possible.


Again, treat this only as a rumor.






November 10, 2016


One of our readers contacted a local cinema in the UK regarding the Rogue One tickets. Here’s the reply he got:


I am pleased to inform that Cineworld will be screening Rogue One : A Star Wars Story. Tickets will be available on our website roughly about 15 November 2016. I can recommend our website feature called Wishlist which will allow you stay up to date and do not miss any details.



Again this could be strictly individual for that theater. As you can see the dates are all over the place and we won’t even try to predict when exactly the tickets will begin sellin. If we have some more concrete information we will keep you updated.



Thanks to Joff Rogers for sending the quote.

Our friend @kenobi_domi found yet another clue about the Rogue One tickets:




Kudos to @kenobi_domi who first made the interesting discovery and deserves all the credit. Now we wait again. 🙂

    I guess they wanted to let Dr. Strange have a weekend or two of sales before putting Rogue Episode One tickets up for sale.

  • November 7, 2016 at 9:59 pm

    They really aren’t expecting this to make 2 billion. Kinda sad really.

    • November 8, 2016 at 4:59 am

      No one was expecting TFA to make 2 billion. To think it would repeat itself with this movie would be truly…ignorant.

      • November 8, 2016 at 1:50 pm

        Never said I believed it would. Just that they’ve put less effort forward to try or make it appear that it might.

        • November 8, 2016 at 5:27 pm

          They don’t need to put in more effort. At this point, Star Wars sells itself. But to expect Rogue One to duplicate TFA is unrealistic.

          • November 9, 2016 at 1:24 am

            I didn’t. But still, it seems like when a movie does really well, studios make the assumption the next one will too. I applaud Disney for being realistic (I know what’s his face even said he didn’t expect Rogue One to do near as well earlier in the year) but it’s still kind of sad to see them temper expectations and not quite go all out like they did for TFA.

            The premiere was really cool last year. I so wished I was there. Sad face.

          • November 9, 2016 at 6:30 am

            It’s not sad, it’s realistic. They are trying to temper expectations so the dumb ass media doesn’t call it a huge disappointment

      • November 8, 2016 at 5:15 pm

        Nobody is an exaggeration. Many industry analysts were predicting 2 billion or above. The 3rd trailer alone had around 80 million views before the release…

        • November 8, 2016 at 5:26 pm

          They predicted that amount once ticket sales were out. TFA was a once in generation, maybe lifetime, event. It was hinged on nostalgia, excitement, curiosity and anticipation that had built for decades.

          That literally can’t happen again a year later.

          • November 8, 2016 at 11:09 pm

            There were 2billion+ predictions around the first teaser aswell (1 year before release). What was rather unexpected is the 936m in the US. That is a monster revenue.

            But yea, nobody in their right mind should predict R1 to do even remotely close to TFA. No movie in the close future will duplicate its feat, especially in the domestic bo.

            1 billion+ will be considered a great success for R1 imo.

          • November 9, 2016 at 12:58 am

            I agree. Yeah, people were predicting tons of things for TFA, but what it actually did and how fast it did was a shock.

  • November 8, 2016 at 3:54 pm

    Well in comparison to last year. I already had my tickets and days requested off from work. This year… As excited as I am to see this movie, there’s a part of me that just wants to give up. I really hate the cash grabbing hubris of Disney.

    • November 8, 2016 at 5:24 pm

      This makes no sense.

      • November 9, 2016 at 5:04 pm

        Except for the fact asking time off of work takes time to get approved, not asking for time off until I have tickets in hand. Last year I already had my tickets and time requested off. This year I may as well just catch it a week later and save my efforts to see it so quickly.

        Not sure what doesn’t make sense.

        • November 9, 2016 at 8:24 pm

          “As excited as I am to see this movie, there’s a part of me that just wants to give up. I really hate the cash grabbing hubris of Disney.”

          What cash grabbing hubris?

  • November 8, 2016 at 4:13 pm

    Hoping some theaters will do a Rogue One & A New Hope back to back feature. Haven’t seen anything yet though.

    • November 9, 2016 at 12:04 am

      Great idea. I’m going to see if we can do this as a work event (that way we can screen the despecialized edition in the office)

    • November 15, 2016 at 9:29 pm

      This is totally my plan – see RO in cinema then straight home for ANH.

  • November 8, 2016 at 5:55 pm

    Minor ding to SWNN for making me get up at 7AM yesterday and then checking Fandango all day for R1 tickets.
    It DOES make more sense that tickets would go on sale at some high-profile time, like on Black Friday, and after a public announcement campaign that will get out to everyone (e.g. R1 commercials running all day Thanksgiving). That’s the way to generate demand.

  • November 8, 2016 at 6:33 pm

    Getting the tickets is the easy part. Standing in line after u get the tickets is what really sucks

    • November 8, 2016 at 7:59 pm

      I learned that from Ep7 last year, although it was fun to be in line for 5 hours with other hardcore fans.
      This year, I’m going to the reserved-seating theater!

      • November 11, 2016 at 4:28 am

        Me too. It was fun to be in that moment with everyone

    • November 8, 2016 at 10:00 pm

      I went to the first morning show on Friday, got there an hour early and we were the first ones. Easy peasy.

    • November 16, 2016 at 9:48 pm

      I look forward sitting next to the greasy fan or the mother with the howling kids on opening weekend. The experience is priceless.

      • November 17, 2016 at 1:36 am

        that’s why I sit away from people lol

  • November 8, 2016 at 7:09 pm

    I was invited yesterday to the Croatian premiere, December 15. I am watching it at December 16 2 more times,can’t wait

  • November 8, 2016 at 7:13 pm

    I will watch R1 December 14! 😀

  • November 8, 2016 at 7:25 pm

    Has there been a pre-ticket sale for the US?

    • November 8, 2016 at 9:23 pm

      not yet, but it usually happens for most movies about a month or so out.

  • November 8, 2016 at 7:51 pm

    Damn you Cineworld!! Only last week they told me “We’ve got no idea”!

  • November 8, 2016 at 9:12 pm

    Cineworld’s date is probably just based on a rough estimation of ‘around a month before the movie comes out’.

  • November 8, 2016 at 9:22 pm

    When you’ve got a mate that’s management at cineworld, but you pestered them so much about ep7 that I’m not brave enough to do the same this time haha

  • November 9, 2016 at 1:38 am

    When the election fiasco is over, I’m sure something will present itself.

  • November 10, 2016 at 7:48 am

    ive already got 4 seats at a corporate screening on dec 16

  • November 15, 2016 at 2:05 am

    Didn’t we have title for VII this time two years ago?

    • November 15, 2016 at 5:06 am

      I don’t think we can gauge things by VII anymore. It was a unique experience that won’t be felt again. i mean… VIII hype will ramp up and be CRAZY….. but after all the waiting… and the OT cast… and the new direction and look and feel….. it was its own thing.

      I am thinking we will get the title and trailer at Star Wars Celebration in April.

      • November 15, 2016 at 5:36 pm

        That would be like Disney: make loyal fans wait for the title until only 8 months before its release..

  • November 15, 2016 at 3:55 pm

    Starting to sound like I’ll wait for Netflix. Not playing ticket games. I’ll just wait till I can watch it at home.

    • November 17, 2016 at 3:46 am


  • November 15, 2016 at 5:34 pm

    ….and the US?

  • November 16, 2016 at 9:47 pm

    Reserve a seat next to RWNJ at the Dolby Theater for your neighborhood in the reclining seats.
