Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters next week! Yes, the next Star Wars movie is finally here. With opening weekend looking to be another major event with sold-out theaters and ticket presale records broken once more, Lucasfilm and Disney should have another hit on their hands.
That means that collectibles will be popular, and you can get some of them directly in theaters when you go to see the film, not just in stores. In addition to their already-announced IMAX collectible tickets, Regal Cinemas has a collection of concession items to purchase starting with the early preview showings on Thursday December 15, 2016.
The Regal-exclusive Rogue One: A Star Wars Story concession merchandise runs $19.99, and includes a collectible cup, a collectible popcorn tin, and one of the toppers, chosen from K-2SO, Jyn Erso, Darth Vader, the Death Trooper, or the Scarif Shoretrooper characters from the film. There are four different tins, as well- A full cast in front of the Death Star plans shot, a full cast in front of the Rebel Alliance phoenix, a focus on the villains with Darth Vader, Death Troopers and Orson Krennic, and an Imperial tin with the AT-ACT walkers and a large Death Trooper on it.
The sets are being offered at over 120 locations of Regal Cinemas across the country, and you can find a full list here.
Finally, Regal has teamed with Disney Movie Rewards to offer a Special Edition digital Rogue One magazine.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits US theaters December 16, 2016. Directed by Gareth Edwards, it's the first of the new standalone features from Lucasfilm and Disney, which take place outside the core "Skywalker Saga" of films noted by an Episode number. Rogue Onetells the story of the small band of rebels that were tasked with stealing the plans to the first Death Star. The story spins directly off the opening crawl from the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. In that crawl, it read: "Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet."
