    Hello all fellow star wars fans!

    Following theories are not my own yet some ideas are my own. I give credit to youtuber's!

    A good theory floating around youtube is that Diego Luna is playing a version of Kyle Katarn due to the fact that Disney has pulled some more EU to give us fans another movie we want.



    Diego-Katarn01.jpg

    Below is video game Kyle...
    KyleKatarn01.jpg

    Let's compare....

    1.Both have many of the same browns, Deigo doesn't have any rebel colors.
    2.Kyle Katarn if those of you played Dark Forces/JediKnight that Kyle did not start as a Jedi.
    3.Facial hair is similar.
    4.Heck even the hair is similar.
    5.His pose is similar.
    6.Facial expressions are also similar.

    Thoughts?

    I wouldn't be surprised if they pull in some characterisation from Kyle (his surly snarkiness for example), and I think that that may be most of the reasons that the pose and facial expressions seem to line up are just a matter of those characterisation similarities.

    I'm guessing that Diego Luna is the overall leader. He's the more stable military man trying to keep this younger, devil may care kind of sort of criminal (Jyn) in check/on mission.

    I got the impression there might be some sort of relationship between him and Jyn, maybe they'd had a relationship in the past (or they build one here). They did have the shot in the trailer (when her past "accomplishments" are being listed off) of her and Luna shooting each other a "look" like they might know/recognize each other. And it seems like they have at least a few scenes where it's just the two of them together.

    IDK if Edwards will do much romance here, given what kind of movie he and others have described it as being (a "gritty war film" and all that), or if they'll even be time for that. But it's possible.

    It's a good chance Diego is playing a new, commander of sorts, but if my signature has anything to say about this, I still really hope he's Biggs. That means he survives, and makes his death in the trench run very poignant and powerful, and reestablishes the bigger role he was intended to have in the movie.

    In the old radio show and the ANH novel, Biggs did plan on defecting, but it was hinted that he already did. And, it is set just before, so maybe when he defected, Biggs did something amazing, like destroy an entire TIE fighter facility by himself in one ship or something. It is quickly becoming clear that this universe is extremely well thought out, with a great deal of inter-connectivity that amplifies and fixes the effect of movies and other media into the know story. And how is he a defect? He doesn't have a faulty motivator, he simply defected from the Imperial Academy.

    Yeah that's what I meant when I said "defect" as in he's a defector of The Empire.

    Are we all on the same page that he's considered the male lead?

    That was my initial thinking, and it still seems like that's the most likely case, but I will say that Chirrut (Donnie Yen's character) seems to be fairly important as well.

    He seems to be the one in charge of the mission even though Jyn is the "guide."

    Um...yeah. Looks like you nailed it. Your description was almost exactly the character profile EW gave. Good job.
