Twitter has once again proved that it is the platform where “things happen,” by organising the world’s first Live #StarWars Q&A with the cast from Rogue One. It will take place on December 2 at 1pm EST.
Twitter has always been the place where events that affected the world of sports, or culture became breaking news. And now, Twitter is trying to be even more than that – it wants to be the platform where things happen. That means a lot more live content, that is closer to its audience’s likes and interests.
On the other hand, the upcoming release of the new Star Wars movie is the cultural event of the end of the year. So it makes complete sense for Twitter to get involved. This Friday, December 2, Twitter is scheduling a live streaming Q&A with the cast of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The event is hosted by People magazine and you can expect to discover content from the film, prior to its official release on December 16.
The Q&A will be broadcast from a “surprise location,” according to Twitter, and will be available on Twitter’s apps, at RogueOne.twitter.com, as well as through the StarWars and People official Twitter accounts. Participants in the discussion will include Director Gareth Edwards, Lucasfilm President and Producer Kathleen Kennedy, along with cast members including Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and Riz Ahmed.
The live event will kickstart at 1PM EST on Friday, December 2.
