Wear Rogue One Glasses for the Next Star Wars

Designed by pioneering Australian 3D glasses manufacturer Look3D, who have been creating specialist 3D cinema glasses for nearly a decade, these Rogue One glasses are a big step forward in detail and screen accuracy from the ones released for the North American release of The Force Awakens in 2015. 

 Modelled on the visor portion of an Imperial Stormtrooper and the new Death Trooper helmets, they are distinctly different in design. While the classic Stormtrooper helmet design retains the white, smooth and rounded appearance that most movie goers will regonise, the Deathtrooper's plastic has a dark, ominous gleam and a slightly angular - almost insectile - appearance.

 Other Look3D Specials

Look3D has a long and impressive history with some of the biggest movie studios in the the industry - DreamWorks Animations, LucasFilm, Warner Brothers, Disney, Paramount, Fox and Sony Pictures. In addition to the last Star Wars movie Look3D has produced character glasses for Finding Dory, Trolls, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Angry Birds, Hotel Transylvania 2 and the last Spongebob Squarepants movie.

 Passive Polarized Cinemas Only

Though they are being produced by MasterImage 3D the glasses will work with in competing RealD certified cinemas as well. However they won't work with active-based 3D systems, such as Dolby, IMAX or Xpand, as these companies use shutter glasses with active electronics. On the plus side they will work with 3D TVs that use passive 3D technology, which is most of them. Both pairs will be available at North American and European cinemas, and possibly Australia and New Zealand, where the appropriate projection system is available. 

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is coming in theaters on December 14,2016.
