    Yeah from my perspective the only thing this movie is building up to is giving reasons as to why ANH happens .

    Well said. Rogue One is really only meant to set up for Ep4.

    Agreed the TNH title was a good choice for a title given what will happen days, hours, before.

    And what about Han and/or Chewie cameoing in Rogue One?

    Pablo's tweet highlights exactly why I've been doubtful of the possibility of a Han cameo. Darth Vader, Mon Mothma, and (possibly) a digital version of Wilhuff Tarkin provide enough connections to the GFFA, and given that the story revolves around the Rebel Alliance mission to steal the Death Star plans, appearances from all of those characters serve the story. Adding Han Solo into the mix would do nothing to benefit the story.

    Exactly, plus there's the added issue of this movie taking place immediately prior to ANH. Last I heard, the new actor was playing a "young" Han Solo. It would be odd to have an appearance by a different actor who isn't the spitting image of Harrison Ford appear in the film when they are trying to make it feel connected to ANH.

    "Jyn and Cassian
    In the era of fandom 'shipping, it's only a matter of time before people start drawing hearts around Jyn and Cassian. The filmmakers say he's the reliable, stable one who counters her loose-cannon tendencies, sort of Murtaugh to her Riggs. (There's probably a fandom out there who 'ship the two Lethal Weapon characters, too.) No doubt Jyn and Cassian form a trust and a friendship, but does that always have to mean romance? Is there perhaps value in showing a man and woman whose partnership is strictly platonic, an example of two soldiers who share a deep affection for each other, but not necessarily in that way? Or are we just going to 'ship, 'ship, 'ship until the Banthas come home?"


    "Audrey‏@natallianovna
    @Breznican when you say Jyn/Cassian shouldn't be romantic is that based on insider info that they're only friends :( ... or just an opinion?

    Anthony Breznican ‏@Breznican 2 h Anthony Breznican retweeted Audrey
    Just my own thought. I'm not sure how their relationship will play out."

    It sounds like it's going to be like a buddy movie/opposites attract just like "Toy Story ."

    I believe Jyn will not encounter Han, Luke, Chewie... It's a biiiiig universe. And we don't know if Jyn will survive.

    I doubt they would kill her off in the first movie, she has so much trouble to cause the empire, this is just the first steps of a character's redemption.

    The ONLY movie. :) IF she does survive they can continue her story in a novel or comic.

    I wonder if after Rogue One, Felicity will headline more action films.

    Any interaction between Jyn Erso and Han Solo would be an offhand reference to "some cocky smuggler who claimed he could do it"

    I do think she'll be in more high-profile movies for sure. She already got a pretty big boost from The Theory Of Everything.

    I really hope we see more of her acting range in the next trailer. The delivery on some of her lines came across as flat compared to what she did in the previous movie that I mentioned.

    Off course, this appearance will give her a role boast.

    Seeing as she's presented as an undisciplined, aggressive and generally someone serving her own interests, I took that the "Joan of Arc" comment was her character development, becoming a leader of a group of men, an inspiration to fight and serving a higher idea/goal, not her death.

    And her suppsed death, honestly, they wouldn't reveal it in such a way. The appeal of and motivation to go and see Rogue One is not whether they get the plans; they do, we know this. It's whether anyone from the team survives that will constitute the "spoilers" of this movie.
