Rumor: Minor 'Rogue One' Plot Details

By: Dominic Jones

The focus of Star Wars fandom and the folks behind the scenes at Lucasfilm is Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, but we need not forget that there is another Star Wars film in production right now.  That film is Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, directed by Gareth Edwards and starring Felicity Jones.  Today, JoBlo posted some interesting, but minor plot details about that film.  The details are pretty minor, but if you are trying to avoid all Rogue One spoilers, then stop reading now.  This is your SPOILER ALERT!

  • Definitely set during the “Dark Time” of the Empire (between Episodes III and IV)
  • Being coined as “darker and grittier” than any other Star Wars film to date
  • The film seems to be aiming to be much like an old school war film; Think Hamburger Hill meets Star Wars
  • All the Jedi are said to be in hiding; expect this story to leave them in the background
  • Stormtroopers have same armor as they do in the original films (i.e. episodes IV – VI)
  • Lots of alien life forms, Mon Calamari among them
  • New droids and aliens will be introduced. Kind of a no-brainer, but just so you know it’s not just a bunch of rebels
  • At-Ats, X-Wings, Y-wings, At-Sts are said to be present.
  • Implied that some of the film will take place on Yavin-4; a lot of armies in the jungle and various battlefield locations
  • Looks like a new droid will be part of the band of rebels attempting to steal the Death Star plans
  • Felicity Jones is seen dressed as a rebel soldier ready for battle; expect her to get her hands dirty in this one

  • There is some pretty interesting stuff in there, though nothing to major.  

    As always, this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.

    Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One opens in theaters in December 16th, 2016.
