However, one can expect the toys this year to differ from last year because the plot of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is far different from the original Skywalker series.

While last year’s Star Wars movie “The Force Awakens” followed the traditional plot, this year’s movie will trace the history of the Rebel Alliance and they obtained the Death Star.
