Rumor: Rogue One Tickets Will Go on Sale at the End of November
A couple of weeks ago, there was a report making the rounds that Rogue One tickets would go on sale on November 7. That date has come and gone, so clearly Lucasfilm has another date in mind, and the internet has scrounged up another contender: November 28.

According to Furious Fanboys, the original November 7 date was simply the date that tickets were available for a few select private screenings. Now, Star Wars News Net might have the real date, as they caught wind of a report that claims the tickets will go on sale by the end of the month:


The link is broken for US viewers, so Domi Kenobi took a screenshot:



This is just a rumor for now, but there is some reason to believe that it's true. ABC is having a Disney Christmas special on Thanksgiving night, and it's definitely possible that they're using the Black Friday frenzy to promote Rogue One. 

That being said, if this is true, it would be pretty late. November 24 is three weeks ahead of the release, which is already pushing it, and November 28 is significantly later than the window Lucasfilm allowed for The Force Awakens (thirty days). Considering how much attention the number of pre-sales gets, there's a good chance we could be seeing tickets go on sale even sooner than that, on November 15-17 (probably the 16th, after they announce it on the Star Wars Show).

Plus, a SWNN reader received an email from a UK cinema saying that their tickets will go on sale on the 15th:

Closing quote


That could just be the date for that individual theater, but you never know. Either way, we should be able to buy our tickets by the end of November.
