    Great movie, glad she is a part of it, Mara Jade is not going to appear in TFA unless Ben is cast as well.

    Okay guys let's start this right. I'll get the obvious ideas out on the table now...

    Wedge Antillies' daughter.
    Hera from Rebels.
    A brand new character.
    Mara Jade?!

    Let me know who you think.

    I think it´s a brand new set of characters.

    Her character arc will be different from any other Star Wars film... It has to start and end in the movie... So my guess is that it will be a very personnal movie.

    A Rogue Pilot :) not related to anyone.

    Well Rogue One was Wedges call sign. So there's probably gonna be a tie in somehow.

    Was it his sign? If so it's gotta be about his daughter or an unrelated female pilot who takes over his role, right?

    I need to know when the movie takes place before I can even make a guess. Is it about the Rogue One of the OT era, the Rogue One of the ST era, or maybe the very first Rogue Squadron pilot?

    Also, they're careful not to say she is the main star of the movie (just the first actress cast), so Rogue One might not even refer to her.

    They're most likely going to keep the movies close on the timeline so they do the "Marvel thing", good chance some of the characters in this movie could already be in 7 as very small roles. Also, most likely in 8 and 9.

    It is interesting that Rogue squadron was only referenced on screen once - during the battle of Hoth in ESB.

    Wedge was referred to as being in Red Squadron in both ANH and ROTJ.

    Most of the Rogue Squadron stuff was made famous in the EU and video games. So this movie could go in a lot of directions.

    The whole idea behind the Rogue Squadron EU novels was that after Endor, the old Rogue Group designation was reactivated as the name of an elite New Republic squadron, as much for its public relations value as for its tactical value.

    Obviously, these novels are not part of official SW canon, but it would make perfect sense for them to use a basic concept like this for the Rogue One film. I expect it will probably take place between ROTJ and TFA.

    As for who Jones may be playing, all we know is that she's the first cast member to be announced. That doesn't necessarily mean that she's playing the lead role, although she certainly could be.

    Personally, I like the idea that I've seen floated in one or another of these discussions that Jones could be playing Ysanne Isard. Would they grab a main character straight out of an old EU novel? Who knows? She'd certainly make for a cool screen villain, that's for sure.

    But I tend to think it more likely that Jones is a completely new character.

    She's playing Wedge's daughter, of course. Wedgie.

    I'm a hopeless EU fanboy, so I hope she's Mirax, love interest to Corran Horn.

    It would make since to tie that Romeo & Juliette in space to a spin-off. What if the Imperial grows up to be Kylo Ren?
