Perhaps the most anticipated movie this December “Rogue One” will be hitting the theaters in about 10 days, and some of us are dying to know all the details regarding the plot of the first standalone Star Wars movie.
Beware, though – plot spoilers ahead…
As USA Today reports, journalists recently got a sneak peek at 28 minutes from “Rogue One” and it appears there are some pretty exciting fresh updates on the story.
Star Wars fans, buckle up!
Jyn Erso’s Backstory Is Similar To Rey’s
Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones) is one of the key members of the Rebel Alliance group. We already know they are tasked to steal the plans for the Empire’s Death Star, but what we didn’t know is that Jyn has had her life torn apart at a young age.
“Daisy Ridley’s The Force Awakens heroine was left on a desert planet by herself as a child, and Jones’ character has a similar life-altering incident: A tragedy occurs in the Krennic situation, Galen is taken and Jyn runs for her life, hiding in a cave and ultimately being found by Rebel extremist Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker), a veteran of the Clone Wars”, USA Today writes.
This Is The (New) Droid We Were Looking For
Yes, there’s a new droid in town! “Force Awakens” brought us the adorable little BB-8 who completely stole the show last year, and this December THE droid will apparently be K-2SO, a reprogrammed badass Imperial robot that is “played” by Alan Tudyk.
The Fellowship Of The Rogue
This time the heroes seem to have squad goals. Jyn gets rescued from an Imperial labor camp on Wobani by Rebels and the squad starts to take form:
- Cassian Andor (Diego Luna)
- Assassin Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen)
- Force-sensitive warrior Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen)
- And of course, we have Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), as we previously mentioned…
