Familiar Rebels Spotted in 'Rogue One' Charity Video for ASSERT?

By: Dominic Jones

The charity ASSERT, which benefits children living with Angelman Syndrome, released a new video today featuring Rogue One: A Star Wars Story director Gareth Edwards talking about his niece, who has Angelman Syndrome.  It's very touching to hear Edwards talk about his niece and it was great to see her so excited to be on a Star Wars set.  You can check out the video below, and if you watch carefully you might spot a couple of familiar rebels from the original trilogy in the video,

If you look carefully at 1:08 in the video, you'll see two X-Wing pilots on the right that appear to be Biggs Darklighter and Jek Porkins (or at least two guys that look a lot like them and wear the same helmets).  Shout out to our friends at Making Star Wars for spotting them!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16th.  You can learn more about Angelman Syndrome and ASSERT here.
