"The Nissan Rogue and the first Star Wars standalone movie share more than just a name. The Star Wars film franchise has pushed the boundaries of technology since the debut of the original episode nearly 40 years ago," said Jeremy Tucker, vice president, Marketing Communications & Media, Nissan North America, Inc. "Nissan is doing the same with its industry-leading cars, trucks and SUVs like the new Rogue – our most advanced Rogue to date – so it's natural that the two join forces."
Nissan has also created an immersive "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story"-inspired experience for consumers visiting the Nissan display during the Los Angeles Auto Show, which takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Nov. 18 through 27. Activities include a full-scale Tie Fighter replica, a Star Warscharacter-themed digital mirror experience, an Augmented Reality generator and weekend appearances by stormtroopers. In addition, a special gallery features a display of costumes and model props used during the production of the upcoming "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" movie, including Y-Wing, AT-ACT and X-Wing fighters.
