With little over a week until the unveiling of Gareth Edwards’ ludicrously-anticipated Rogue
Starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Mads Mikkelsen, Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen, Alan Tudyk, and Forest Whitaker, Edwards’ anthology is the very first Star Wars feature to exist outside of the traditional Saga framework, and with that comes equal expectations and opportunities.
To celebrate the release of the film (in UK cinemas from Thursday, 15th December, and a day later in the United States), we have composed a list of burning questions which we need Rogue One to shed some light on.
So without further ado, let’s prepare for our forthcoming voyage to A Galaxy Far, Far Away…
10. Who is Jyn Erso?
Now of course we know who Jyn Erso is; she is the lead protagonist of the film who is recruited by Mon Mothma and Captain Cassian Andor to assist in a Rebel mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. But who is she?
Why does she arrive at headquarters bound in shackles, and is her involvement in the mission more deep-seeded than merely father Galen Erso’s implementation to the construction of the “super weapon”?
We have little doubt that her backstory will be explored throughout the film, and if you’ve read “Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel”, you’ll know a bit more about her upbringing already.
