Tickets for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" went on sale at midnight on Monday.
This quickly proved problematic -- top ticket site Fandango glitched on fans trying to snag tickets early, FanSided reported. Would-be ticket buyers were placed in a long queue that had a good chance of ending in an error message.
The film opens Dec. 16, with some theaters showing it early on Dec. 15.
Fandango called the traffic "overwhelming."
It wasn't a pretty sight.
Some suspected foul play.
And it was made worse by the anticipation many fans felt.
But by about 6:30 a.m. Eastern time, the site's issued appeared to have resolved themselves.
Meanwhile, hundreds of fans lined up at theaters to get tickets offline. KABC in Los Angeles reported fans got there hours early, and lines ran around the block for hours.
The hype machine is in full swing -- another trailer for the movie dropped last week.
Even self-styled non-fans got in on the hype.
