 With production underway at Pinewood Studios, Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One will become one of the first spinoff movies within Disney’s franchise. The plot will involve a group of Rebel soldiers who go on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. However, the characters within the film are currently unknown at the moment. But rumors from Umberto Gonzales of Heroic Hollywood claimed in Meet the Movie Press that star Felicity Jones’ character will be the daughter of one of Star Wars most (in)famous bounty hunters: Boba Fett. Personally, I think that if this is true, then there can be some interesting character dynamic between the two, where Jones is fighting for the Rebels while Fett is out for himself. It can also help flesh out Fett in the movie universe instead of being just there to fight the protagonists like in Episodes V and VI. Boba Fett is one of my favorite characters within Star Wars, and reintroducing him can increase his popularity. The film will also star Ben Mendelsohn, Sam Clafin, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, and Forest Whitaker. Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One is set to release December 15, 2016.
