Star Wars Rumor: Who 'Felicity Jones’ May Be in Playing ‘Rogue One’?
Can it be true?
"The morning on Meet the Movie Press , Mark Reilly was joined by frequent guest and friend of the Schmoes, the scoopmaster himself El Mayimbe from Heroic Hollywood. He dropped some tasty scoops and rumors during his visit. One of which was on the Star Wars front. More specifically it’s in regards to the first anthology film Rogue One. This is all purely speculation for now but word is that Felicity Jones might just be playing the daughter of everyone’s favorite bounty hunter, Boba Fett.
Let’s look at just the character herself, if Felicity Jones is playing the infamous
bounty hunter’s daughter. Why make the character related to Boba Fett at all? Why couldn’t she be a completely new character with no ties to a previous character? The Star Wars universe is massive and her character could be practically anyone with any back-story. Possibly it is to create more conflict within the character as she struggles with the decisions made by her father or actually going up against him. Her character could easily have been another bounty hunter that has either worked with Boba before or learning from him or someone completely different. Like I said before, it is definitely an interesting character choice if it turns out to be true. For now, it will at least provide for some very interesting discussion and theories about Rogue One?
Because of the agreement between Disney and Paramount to hold off on promoting Rogue One until Mission: Impossible is released, we haven’t heard much about the new film. Now that Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation is now out in theaters, I don’t see it being too long before we start hearing more about Rogue One."
Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One is scheduled for release on December 16, 2016.
