It's a Star Wars month in December for Malaysia with the upcoming release of Rogue One
Any release of a new Star Wars film is going to be like a world event. In September, we saw the launch of the toys and now in the month of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's release heading into the holiday season, Sunway Pyramid has been turned into this cool Star Wars-Christmas-crossover-themed shopping mall from now till 2 January 2017! #GoRogueThisChristmas #GoRogueMY
There are a number of free activities, displays and merchandises for sale at LG2 Blue Concourse, most notably the huge Christmas tree made of plenty of X-Wing Fighters and Tie Fighters topped with, I think, a Death Trooper as the star (LOL!). Simple but definitely eye-catching for the fans of the franchise and as one myself, I couldn't resist myself from taking a photo with it. If you looked closely at the boards around the tree on the floor, the illustrated snowflakes are X-Wing's, Tie's and the heads of Stormstroopers (LOL again!). Authentic Death Trooper armours are also at display the concourse — we'll be seeing a lot of these guys in the film for sure.
At the concourse, you will also get to play the “Star Wars: Commander” and “Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes” games free of charge. If you're have high shooting accuracy, you could test your skills and try winning some prizes at the Rogue One Nerf Blaster Battleground. There's also the 360° VR experience that puts you into an X-Wing’ and go on a ride on the ‘Rogue One Recon Mission’ simulator. Go into hyperspeed, only to land upon Imperial forces and come face to face with the Death Star! A lot of fun here for Star Wars fans.
That's not all! There are also adorable LEGO Star Wars figurines and intricate diorama displays at the main entrance on the ground floor (old wing). If you played the video games, you'd be very excited to see these silly fellas. The public are free to take selfies with them.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released at cinemas nationwide on 15 December 2016. Set in between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV - A New Hope, Rogue One offers the story of the group of rebellions who stole the plans of the Death Star. It's directed by Gareth Edwards who did Godzilla (2014) and Monsters (2010), and features Donnie Yen (Ip Man films, SPL: Killzone, Flash Point).
