The Empire strikes back in the new movie "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and Nissan is going along for the ride. The automaker launches a new Star Wars-themed promotional campaign on Monday for its 2017 Rogue compact SUV. The TV ad features a driver speeding by various Star Wars characters.

Rogue sales set records last month, and Tucker says the company expects Rogue will be Nissan's number one selling model this month.
