It's confirmed! The Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) will close its 13th edition at Madinat Jumeirah with one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This will also mark the Middle East premiere of the film which will hit UAE theatres on December 15. The new sci-fi film in the Star Wars franchise, starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen and Forest Whitaker, is set long before last year's epic Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which incidentally not only was partly shot in Abu Dhabi but also made its regional debut in the capital.
