Are you excited for the upcoming release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story? With every Star Wars release, there is always a ton of merchandise to go along with it. In a series of super fan-made animated shorts, a new toy line will be unveiled.
As part of a competition a team of fans was assembled to write, direct, and produce original, fan-made stop-motion shorts starring key toys from the new line. The shorts will be aired on the Star Wars YouTube channel.
“These fan-created shorts are a tribute to the incredible content that the Star Wars community posts online every day,” said Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “The Go Rogue campaign was designed with Star Wars fans in mind – we want them to be front and center in the run up to ‘Rogue One’ by imagining and creating their own Rogue Stories.”
The stories follow the adventures of “Rogue One” toys from Hasbro, LEGO, FUNKO, JAKKS Pacific, Mattel and Disney Store. Follow the adventure as the toys try to track down the building instructions to the LEGO Star Wars Death Star set which have been misplaced by the Empire.
To keep the Star Wars excitement and momentum going, a new global contest will kick off September 30. Fans are invited to share their own stories set in the Star Wars universe. Winning entries from around the globe will be chosen by a panel of judges (including Rogue One director Gareth Edwards).
Teens and adults can enter the Go Rogue contest on StarWars.com/GoRogue. In addition to the global contest on starwars.com, in the U.S. and parts of Canada, kids 8-12 can participate on Disney.com/MyRogueStory. Winners will be invited to Lucasfilm in San Francisco to attend a screening of “Rogue One,” and see their short story on the big screen.
