Presale tickets for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story went on sale in the United States just after midnight on Monday, with "hundreds of thousands of tickets" sold in mere minutes according to Fandango, causing their site to crash multiple times.

“Last night, Fandango saw extraordinary demand for tickets to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," read a company statement. "Within minutes of going on sale, we sold hundreds of thousands of tickets. Similar to ticketing for a highly popular concert event, a ‘waiting room’ in the checkout process was established to accommodate customers as quickly as possible. We were able to continuously serve a record number of customers throughout the night, despite some intermittent slowdowns - and in order to meet the incredible consumer demand, our exhibition partners continue to add new showtimes for opening weekend.”

Along with the presale, Rogue One's runtime has been revealed as 2 hours, 13 minutes, only two minutes shy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2 hours, 15 minutes.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is due out in theaters December 16.
