'Rogue One' and Episode VIII to be Released in IMAX

By: Dominic Jones

IMAX announced today the upcoming slate of Disney films that will be released in IMAX theaters.  This included the upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One (slated for a December 16, 2016 release date) and Star Wars Episode VIII (slated for a May 26, 2017 release date).  Also announced were all the upcoming Marvel and Pixar movies.

The question is, will these films features sequences shot in IMAX? Or will they simply be released in IMAX theaters?  Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will also be released in IMAX and features one sequence shot with IMAX cameras.
Rogue One is directed by Gareth Edwards, written by Chris Weitz, and stars Oscar nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything).  Star Wars Episode VIII is written and directed by Rian Johnson.
