Star Wars: Rogue One - Mon Mothma to get "significantly larger" role

Rebellion leader Mon Mothma is to get a "significantly larger" role in Star Wars: Rogue One, says producer Kathleen Kennedy...

Mon Mothma may not be a familiar name to many outside Star Wars' devoted fanbase, but the ethereal Rebel leader did get one of the most memorable lines in the whole franchise: "Many Bothans died to bring us this information." Nevertheless, Mothma's role in Return Of The Jedi was distinctly brief, and the character wound up on the cutting room floor in Revenge Of The Sith.

Thanks to the first trailer for Star Wars: Rogue One, however, we already know that Mon Mothma has a role in the forthcoming spin-off, and that she'll be played by Genevieve O'Reilly - the actress who previously played Mothma in that deleted scene in Revenge Of The Sith. (Mothma was played in Return Of The Jedi by Caroline Blakiston. »

Mon Mothma Will Have A “Significantly Larger” Role In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

24 June 2016 6:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is both a prequel to A New Hope and a sequel of sorts to Revenge of the Sith. It will feature a character from The Clone Wars and reveals how the Rebels got their hands on the Death Star plans, so you can see how director Gareth Edwards is clearly walking a fine line between both building on what’s come before and what’s yet to happen.

While Darth Vader is set to make his presence felt in a big way, another familiar face returning is Mon Mothma. A senator in the prequels and the leader of the Rebel Alliance in Return of the Jedi, her screentime so far amounts to just a few minutes, but it sounds like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will further flesh out her story.

Mothma is the one who seemingly sends Jyn Erso off to retrieve those plans, »

‘Mon Mothma’ Will Be Utilized In Rogue One Much More Than She Was In Return Of The Jedi

24 June 2016 5:35 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, Mon Mothma appeared and briefed the Rebel Alliance on the plan for the Battle of Endor. Aside from that moment, she didn’t really have a pivotal role in the film. Mothma in Return of the Jedi was portrayed by Caroline Blakiston, however, in Rogue One, she will be played by Genevieve O'Reill. This isn’t O'Reill’s first time portraying the Rebel Leader. She portrayed Mothma in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. Don’t remember? Well, you wouldn’t, unless you own the DVD version. Sadly, all of her O'Reill’s scenes never made it into the final copy of the film. Never to fear though, she’s back in Rogue One and ready to lead! Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm, spoke on Mon Mothma’s role in Rogue One, and she revealed that »

More Rogue One Photos Arrive; Mon Mothma's Role Explained

24 June 2016 1:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It has been a big week for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story reveals, with plenty of character and story details arriving alongside some absolutely stunning new photos. Today, we get an even closer look at the plot, along with some sure to become iconic images from this first Star Wars spinoff. This time, the focus is on returning character Mon Mothma, who was first introduced in Return of the Jedi. We also get an awesome fiery shot of a Death Trooper.

Mon Mothma is a former senator responsible for uniting disparate planetary systems who have come under the tyrannical rule of the Galactic Empire. She is sometimes known as 'The Mother of the Rebellion', and was first introduced way back in 1983's Return of the Jedi, where she delivered the pilot debriefing before the raid on the second Death Star. She also had a small role in Revenge of the Sith, »

Star Wars: Saw Gerrera Blows Rogue One Wide Open

24 June 2016 1:38 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Whew! What a week for mostly official Rouge One: A Star Wars Story dispatches! Granted, most of these are from Entertainment Weekly and not Lucasfilm proper, but that doesn’t mean they are any less official. We’ve officially entered the time period where it was silly that we thought Kaytoo Esso was K-250, it’s a more enlightened time.

Even though all the character names and photos are super cool and worthy of individual attention, the main two purposes in the sudden dump of Rogue One info were to make the general public feel better about the widely reported reshoots and to tell everyone that Darth Vader was indeed in this film.

Turns out all the Darth Vader clues the internet had been hunting ended up paying off, and the rumors of a ruthless and frightening Vader’s return to screen ended up being true. Like we summed up for you earlier this week, »

Mon Mothma A Big Part Of "Rogue One"

24 June 2016 11:08 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the big surprises of the teaser trailer for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" was the appearance of a familiar face from "Return of the Jedi" - the Rebel Leader Mon Mothma.

Genevieve O'Reilly, who first played the role ten years earlier in a deleted scene from "Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith," reprises it in the new film in what was suspected to be just a cameo. Turns out she has a significantly larger role than that. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy tells EW:

"We actually see quite a bit of her. The Rebel alliance is in disarray. Pretty panicked. Up against it. And she is trying the best she can to provide the leadership, in amongst a wide variety of Rebel soldiers that have very differing opinions as to what to do."

That's not all though, several more photos from the project have been »

This 'Ghostbusters'-'Return of the Jedi' mashup is the perfect viral video

21 June 2016 1:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Every once in awhile the perfect viral video rears its glorious head, and today we've got the newest addition to that esteemed canon: this deliriously perfect Ghostbusters-Return of the Jedi mashup by YouTuber Mike Phirman. What would happen if Luke Skywalker encountered the wisecracking supernatural exterminators? It's a straightforward premise that works extraordinarily well, and it's bound to make more than a few viewers ask themselves the oft-echoed question: why didn't I think of that? But the truth is, making a seemingly-easy connection between two distinct entities like this takes a special kind of brain, and Mike Phirman is clearly a genius in the art of the mashup. Enjoy.

Luke and Darth Vader Had the Ultimate Father's Day on Twitter

19 June 2016 11:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Today just so happens to be Father's Day. It is a day that is meant to honor all dads, even the potentially very flawed ones, like Darth Vader, for example. Being that it is Father's Day and Vader, for what it is worth, is one of the most famous movie dads of all time, Dave Prowse, who played Vader in the costume in Star Wars, decided to send out a Tweet about the holiday. The resulting exchange was priceless.

Prowse took to Twitter this morning bright and early to wish his followers a Happy Father's Day. He also slipped in the hash tag #IAmYourFather, being that it is one of the most famous, and misquoted movie lines of all time and it definitely fits the theme of the day. This could have just been a simple, sweet gesture from a member of the Star Wars universe, but this is Twitter »

Han Solo: what we know about his origins, and his movie

Star Wars’ scruffy-lookin’ nerf herder, Mr Han Solo, is getting his own movie. Here’s what we know...

Possible spoilers (we're guessing, though) lie ahead for Rogue One, and for the Han Solo movie.

So, Han Solo is getting a spin-off movie. As part of Disney’s cinematic expansion of the Star Wars saga, a prequel film is now in development to explore the backstory of Harrison Ford’s iconic war hero/smuggler. The only cast member currently confirmed is Alden Ehrenreich, who has been handed some very big shoes/cool black waistcoats to fill as the new Han Solo. 

And before you dismiss this movie as a bad idea, it’s worth remembering that Phil Lord and Chris Miller are the guys directing it. They’ve already brought us Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, the 21 Jump Street revival and The Lego Movie. If there’s »

‘Star Wars’ Producer Robert Watts Unveils New Films

British producer Robert Watts, who worked on the “Star Wars” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” trilogies, is developing a pair of movies, Variety has learned exclusively.

Watts is teaming with Italian songwriter Mauro Repetto and French writer Typhanie Soulat on the live-action/animated romantic comedy “Miranda” and psychological thriller “5, 6, 7, 8.” Real Big Hits is the exclusive worldwide sales and distribution agent.

“Miranda” centers on an unborn baby who — with the help of angels — battles witches to ensure that her future parents find each other, fall in love and bring her to life. The film blends traditional animation, computer animation and live action. Repetto, founder of the pop group 883, is writing the script with Soulat. The duo is also writing the soundtrack.

“5, 6, 7, 8” centers on a sociable marketing executive who’s leading a double life as a kidnapper of young women to create a human keyboard that will perform the titular song with a dance routine. »
