    Our Spanish friends from the site La Fosa Del Rancor uncovered an interesting tidbit during their latest podcast about a Legends Star Wars character that almost appeared in Rogue One. Read on for the details...

    In their latest podcast La Fosa Del Rancor talked with director Marcos Cabota, who remembered an interesting story. A friend of his was auditioning for a role in Rogue One. That was very early even before the movie got a title. The people that auditioned got several early script pages for the tests. In these script pages a blind force user was mentioned, who was revealed to be Rahm Kota.

    For those unfamiliar with the game The Force Unleashed and Rahm Kota, here's Wookieepedia's entry on the character:


    We all know that later this blind Jedi character would evolve into Chirrut Imwe in the final script of the movie.

    Rahm Kota was a very interesting and very well developed character who had many fans. Unfortunately the game The Force Unleashed is not canon (mainly because of the unprecedented force power that the main protagonist has) and this was a missed opportunity for him to get canonized.

    Still, it's possible that this test script was never intended to be used in the future, just for the auditioning process, so who knows...

    It would've been cooler if it'd been Kota in R1. Then they could've included a lightsaber fight scene between him and Vader.
