Tote bags given to cast and crew hint at symbols from the standalone spinoff of Disney’s franchise reboot
Some well-meaning gifts may have tipped off logos from the first of Disney’s “Star Wars” prequels, “Rogue One.”
Though details about the highly anticipated film are scarce, cast and crew gift bags popped up on online auction site eBay Thursday, revealing symbols related to the movie set to be released late this year.
The auction shows a canvas tote bag with a version of the the Alliance “Starbird” symbol that is the main insignia of the rebel forces fighting the forces of the Dark Side.
It includes an inscription in Aurebesh, a language of the “Star Wars” cannon, that translates to “Go Rogue.”
The auction includes a black duffel bag with the already-released “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” logo stitched on it.
“Rogue One” is scheduled for release on Dec. 16 this year. Its plot will center on a band of resistance fighters who join on a mission to steal the Death Star. “The Theory of Everything” actress Felicity Jones is set to star as a rebel soldier in the film, which takes place between the events of Episode III: “Revenge of the Sith,” and the original “Star Wars” release, “A New Hope.”
“The Force Awakens,” the first in a trilogy that kicked off Disney’s revival of the sci-fi franchise, has shattered records, grossing more than $2 billion worldwide since its release in December.
