The release date for the Digital download still is 24th March and April 4th to buy the Blu-ray edition in stores, but as happened to The Force Awakens last year, a Blu-ray copy of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story leaked a few days before the official release dates. Since yesterday, many copies of Rogue One are already available online for download on Internet.
Leaked Blu-ray copies of major movies before the official release dates are nothing new. It could not be different with Rogue One, the first standalone film based on the Star Wars saga that was the highest grossing of last year. The available copies are in several formats as AVI, MKV and MP4, and sizes as 720p, 1080p and 1920p, it seems to have been ripped directly from the movie’s Blu-ray and have excellent quality.
The rarbg.to site (that is responsible for launching dozens of movies and episodes of TV shows daily, plus everything else you can imagine), since yesterday has already made available several versions of Rogue One to download by Torrent, the most popular P2P sharing from Internet. If you can’t wait until next week to buy your official Rogue One copy, check out now the rarbg page for more download details.
And the people of Tumblr, the most popular Internet fandom site, with thousands of blogs dedicated entirely to Star Wars, of course they have already begun work on turning into gif sets their favorite Rogue One characters and scenes:
May the Force be with you.
