“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” Products Now Available Worldwide

GLENDALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Creators from across the Maker
Studios network
joined forces today to celebrate the launch of the
new “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” product line and officially
kick off a global fan content contest. Beginning today, creators across
gaming, lifestyle, comedy and family channels will post #GoRogue videos
calling for Star Wars fans to get creative and share their own
‘Rogue Stories’ as part of the fan contest celebrating the much
anticipated new movie.


“Fans play a special part in Star Wars storytelling, posting
thousands of videos online every day. This contest is a tribute to all
the creativity and passion that fuels Star Wars fandom across
generations,” said Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, Disney Consumer Products and
Interactive Media.

Starting today, eligible fans can enter the contest by uploading their
short video stories or skits set in a galaxy far, far away. A panel of
judges, including “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” director Gareth
Edwards, will choose the winning video. Winners will be invited to an
advance screening of “Rogue One” at Lucasfilm in San Francisco to see
their story on the big screen.

Teen and adult fans can find out more and enter the Go Rogue contest at StarWars.com/GoRogue.
In the U.S. and parts of Canada, kids ages 8-12 can participate at Disney.com/MyRogueStory,
where they also will find a video tutorial and tips to create their own
stories.

More than a dozen Maker Studios creators, with a collective reach of
35M+ followers and 360M+ monthly YouTube views, will upload #GoRogue
videos including: an adventure through Action Movie Kid’s bedroom
where toys come to life, an imaginative unboxing with Chris Pirillo
and other Star Wars super fans, and a ‘rogue’ family tale with MyFroggyStuff—all
available now.

“As a Star Wars super fan, it’s a huge honor to be part of an initiative
that celebrates fandom in a truly creative and unique way,”
said Chris Pirillo, a creator from the Maker Studios network. “I’m
thrilled to participate in this amazing program, to ‘go rogue’ and make
my own place in the galaxy with other super fans.”

The Star Wars fan universe is full of content creators, and there
