Details about “Star Wars: Rogue One” have so far remained under wraps while production continues. However, a recent report may have just revealed some possible descriptions about Felicity Jones and Diego Luna’s characters in the “Star Wars” spinoff film.
Making Star Wars has released a spoiler-rich report involving the casts of “Star Wars: Rogue One.” According to the site, production has given Jones the code name Green Seal Leader. Her costume supposedly looks like that of an Imperial Gunner. Cinema Blend previously claimed that Jones’ character in “Star Wars: Rogue One” is named as Lyra Erso.
Luna, on the other hand, portrays the character of a commanding officer. He reportedly dresses as an Imperial Commander.
According to Making Star Wars, they are dressed as such as a cover-up. A scene in “Star Wars: Rogue One” will reportedly show Luna and Jones dressed in their respective disguise. This scene supposedly harks back to a sequence in “Star Wars: A New Hope,” where Han Solo and Luke Skywalker disguise themselves as Stormtroopers to save Princess Leia.
Meanwhile, Alan Tudyk’s character in “Star Wars: Rogue One” is believed to be a commando droid. Production reportedly gave him the code name Seal Droid. Jiang Wen, on the other hand, is said to be Seal Communicator Blue.
According to Making Star Wars, the code names given to the casts of “Star Wars: Rogue One” are related to eels, sharks and seals. The villains reportedly have names related to sharks.
Making Star Wars also previously revealed details about Forest Whitaker’s character in “Star Wars: Rogue One.” He is said to portray the character of a bounty hunter. He walks with a cane since he reportedly lost one leg in a battle. As for his alias, “Star Wars: Rogue One” production gave him the code name Eel Commander, according to Making Star Wars.
Now that legions of fans around the world have seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens multiple times, they are turning their attention to the first Star Wars spinoff, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is set for release on December 16. Earlier this week, a Fandango poll listed Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as the most anticipated movie to come out in 2016, setting the stage for another massive blockbuster. Today we have a new rumor from Star Wars Time, which claims that Disney is planning to attach the first trailer for Rogue One to theatrical prints of Captain America: Civil War.
While the news has not been confirmed yet by Disney, it certainly would follow a pattern of Disney using other projects to help promote its burgeoning Star Wars universe. Disney released the second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens during Star Wars Celebration in April, before attaching it to theatrical prints of another Disney-owned project, Avengers: Age of Ultron. Disney also debuted the third trailer during ESPN’s Monday Night Football, another Disney-owned entity.
Rogue One is set between Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, centering on a group of Rebels who hatch a mission to steal the original Death Star plans. The cast includes Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn (who is reportedly playing the villain), Alan Tudyk, Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker, Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, Jonathan Aris and Wen Jiang, although little is known about their characters. Earlier today, a rumor surfaced that Felicity Jones is playing a Rebel pilot named Lyra Erso, but that has not been confirmed.
What we do know for sure is that Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) is directing from a script by Chris Weitz (Cinderella) and Gary Whitta (After Earth). After Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters in December, Star Wars: Episode VIII will hit theaters on May 26, 2017, followed by Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo on May 25, 2018, Star Wars: Episode IX in 2019 and Star Wars Anthology: Boba Fett in 2020. Disney and LucasFilm haven’t confirmed any plans beyond those movies, but a report from November claimed that the studios plan on churning out one new Star Wars movie a year, indefinitely.
What do you think about this rumor that the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer will debut alongside Captain America: Civil War? Even if it is true, it’s certainly possible that the footage will debut online earlier than that, but we don’t know for sure quite yet. Be sure to stay tuned for any official word about the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story comes to theaters December 16th, 2016.

The 32-year-old actress reportedly stars as a character named Lyra Erso in the upcoming ‘Star Wars’ anthology movie.
It’s obvious that Felicity Jones is starring in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, but her character’s real name is still kept secret. A recent report from a Twitter account named Daisy Ridley Fan revealed a possible name for the lead character played by Jones.
The outlet claimed that the English actress would play Lyra Erso. The source made the conclusion after they learned that stuntwoman Gabriele Fritz was listed on various casting sites as being the double for Erso. Since Fritz possesses a close physical resemblance to Jones, it’s possible that Erso is Jones’ character’s name.
If the rumor is true, fans will get a brand new heroine without a familial connection to the Skywalker or Solo clans. However, there is still a possibility that Erso is just a codename.
Previously, Jones was rumored to play a Rebel Alliance soldier, who embarks on a suicide mission to steal the plans to the first mega-weapon Death Star from the Empire. A seperate report hinted that Bern Collaco would play a stormtrooper, Angus Cook would portray a mechanic and Nabilah Karim would star as a samurai.
“Rogue One” takes place shortly before “Star Wars – Episode IV: A New Hope” and shortly after the events of the animated series “Star Wars Rebels”. Directed by Gareth Edwards, the “Star Wars” anthology movie is slated for a release on December 16 in the United States.
