Because we’re huge dorks, we’ve covered Rogue One: A Star Wars Story pretty extensively here on the site. The latest movie in the franchise had a tie-in with an automaker. Nissan worked with the folks at Disney to build a vehicle that pays homage to Star Wars. They created the 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition that debuted in Los Angeles. Now, you can see that, and more, in Chicago.
We talked to Jeremy Meadows, one of the people behind the Nissan Rogue special edition, on a previous episode of the podcast. You can also catch that interview below.
Along with the special edition Rogue that’ll be on display, Nissan is going all-out with the Chicago Auto Show display. Here’s just a sampling of what to expect;
- Special display of scale-replica conceptual models of the Y-Wing Starfighter, TIE Striker, AT-ACT and X-Wing Starfighter from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
- Other highlights include massive Death Star inflatable hovering over the vehicles, Star Wars character-themed digital mirror experience and weekend appearances by stormtroopers
- The 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition model – the first production vehicle ever to include Star Wars-branded elements – and X-wing-inspired custom vehicle also on display
While we do plan on covering the rest of the auto show, don’t be surprised if you see us hanging out in the Nissan booth during the media days. We’re nerds that way.
