With the theatrical release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just under a month away, Lucasfilm has done about all they can do in terms of promoting their latest tentpole. Multiple trailers have excited many, TV spots have teased a hard-hitting war drama, and even new novels are getting fans ready for the first standalone anthology film in the beloved franchise. Anticipation levels are already through the roof, and the only real question that remains unanswered is whether or not the movie is of high quality.

Viewers still have to wait a little bit before the professional reviews start rolling in, but they'll be able to get an idea of how Rogue One plays to a crowd very soon. Lucasfilm has now set up the world premiere for the movie, and just like last year's The Force Awakens, it comes a few days before the general public will have a chance to see it.

Twitter user @RandolphCarter1 (hat tip Star Wars News Net) shared an image of the invitation he received from Lucasfilm on social media. Obviously, the key information of the screening's location is blurred out, but it does say that the premiere will take place the evening of Saturday, December 10. While the host city is unknown, it's likely the event will be held in Los Angeles, just like the Episode VII premiere:
