Making Star Wars has a few bits for Rogue One: A name or codename for Felicity Jones’ character. (Remember, most sources for The Force Awakens were calling Daisy Ridley’s character ‘Kira’ – we didn’t hear the name ‘Rey’ until it was officially revealed just after the first teaser trailer, which could also be the case here.)
They also have a bit on Jiang Wen’s character, and a pair of posts on new trooper types we may see.
→ At Toy Fair, Jedi News heard from several licensees that Force Friday will return to launch Rogue One merchandise on September 30, 2016.
→ Scottish model Eunice Olumide has a part in the film, and she described a scene to the Edinburgh News. (via)
→ On Today last week, Forest Whitaker described the film as a “little edgier” for Star Wars.
