Disney has unveiled the new toy line from the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with a mini-series of its own.

Last year, they simply unboxed toys across several time zones, but this time they're revealing the toys in Go Rogue, a four-part, fan-made series of stop-motion animated shorts.

The shorts are rolling out throughout September on Star Wars' YouTube channel leading up to September 30 when the toys will release - though pre-orders will be available later this week.

Numerous toy makers are in on the series, including Funko's popular Pop Vinyl range.

According to Deadline, the series was directed and written by a team of Star Wars fans and features more than 40 new toys, 20,000 Lego bricks and a line of merchandise from Hasbro, Funko, Jakks Pacific, Mattel and the Disney Store.

It is a means of paying tribute to Star Wars fans who, according to ZEFR online, post videos online whenever Star Wars news breaks - posting 838,000 Star Wars-related clips in the last year alone.
