Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will debut in movie theaters nationwide this week. Will you be able to watch the film in 3D come opening day? We have all the information you need.

Star Wars movies tend to be some of the best in terms of special effects. The original trilogy of movies, beginning with Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, set the bar in terms of special and visual effects.

Later on, the prequel trilogy featured some solid effects of its own.

Continuing with last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, audiences have generally seen some excellent special and visual effects when taking in the galaxy from far, far away.

One thing is for certain, films that tend to do well in special and visual effects are well worth the price of admission.

So can you watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in 3D?

Yes you can. In addition to seeing the movie in 3D, moviegoers can also take in the Gareth Edwards-directed film in IMAX 3D.

Rogue One mainly centers on a group of characters new to the Star Wars universe. Taking place before the events of A New Hope, this film will see Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso leading a group of rebels to steal the plans to the first Death Star.

She’ll be joined by Alan Tudyk’s K-2SO, Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor, Riz Ahmed’s Bodhi Rook, Donnie Yen’s Chirrut Imwe, Mads Mikkelsen’s Galen Erso, Wen Jaing’s Baze Malbus, and Forrest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera. The group will be opposed by the film’s antagonist, Orson Krennic. Krennic will be played by Ben Mendelsohn.

Additionally, audiences will also see a number of familiar faces, with Bail Organa, Mon Mothma and Darth Vader set to appear.
