Star Wars fans in the UK will get to experience the franchise’s first stand alone film earlier than fans in the US.

Star Wars UK Twitter account have today announced that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will open in cinemas on December 15 in the UK, just a day earlier than Rogue One’s release date of December 16 in the US.

It’s not unusual for films to open earlier in the UK than they do in the US and opening just a day earlier is close when you think that the United Kingdom gets Marvel Studios films a week earlier.
