4.3 & 4.4 In The Name Of The Rebellion
In an episode ostensibly tied to Rogue One, I found myself getting distracted by everything else. The two-part In The Name Of The Rebellion finds Ezra and Sabine effectively kidnapped by Saw Gerrera, who wants to use their expertise in sneaking into Imperial bases for his own violent ends. The episode attempted to grapple with some of the ideas presented by Saw’s character in Rogue One — how far is too far down the dark path for a character with ostensibly good motivations? — but it doesn’t fully embrace that discussion.
Earlier this year, writer Jody Hauser revealed that some bits and pieces of footage that director Gareth Edwards didn't include in his film, will be used for this Rogue One comic, along with moments from the Rogue One novelization that will be included in this comic.
In a new clip from the episode titled 'Secret Cargo', Senator Mon Mothma meets captain Hera Syndulla and the Ghost crew for the first time. It turns out she's on a secret mission to what will be the first meeting attempting to form a Rebel Alliance and needs the Ghost to help her get there.
What Star Wars live-action fans will immediately recognize is the location of the meeting, shared by Mon Mothma as the clip concludes, is none other than the planet of Dantooine. This is the same planet that Princess Leia tells Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin is the location
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story came packing some exciting connective tissue to all things Star Wars past and present, but perhaps none more thrilling than the appearance of iconic Star Wars Rebels Ship, the Ghost, which is first spotted on Yavin 4 before being seen heading into the thrilling climax at the Battle of Scarif. During the film,

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is in cinemas now. By most accounts I've seen, director Gareth Edwards and writers John Knoll, Gary Whitta, Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy have served up a Star Wars movie that critics and audiences have really taken to.
You might have questions about Rogue One. We might have thought of these very same questions. We may or may not have answered them adequately. Scroll past our spoiler squirrel to find out....
Why was there no opening crawl?
“We felt that’s so indicative of what those saga films are”, Lucasfilm head honcho Kathleen Kennedy told Variety a few weeks ago. “Initially, we probably will
Disney hasn't tried to act as though the prequels never happend ever since they purchased all of Lucasfilm back in 2012 for more than $4 billion, but they very clearly understand that it is a delicate thing.

Along with the posters and portrait, which Gary Whitta unveiled on Twitter, Making Star Wars also revealed new behind-the-scenes photos from Rogue One, which features director Gareth Edwards and stars such as Donnie Yen, Wen Jiang and Warwick Davis. The Warwick Davis image also gives us a first look at the creature he is playing, with an unidentified crew member holding his mask.
Actor Alistair Petrie was featured in the very first Rogue One teaser as a stern Rebel leader. He is seen reading off a list of offenses as committed by new hero Jyn Erso, played by Felicity Jones. Many fans wondered: Who is this guy? And soon, those same fans began to concoct their own ideas about who this Rebel leader is, and where he comes from.
Alistair Petrie is seen in a scene with the iconic Rebel ruler Mon Mothma, who appears in her white caftan that
A Rogue One Japanese trailer made its way onto YouTube Monday, which is a very welcomed surprise given how recently the North American cut of the full-length trailer debuted. In this latest sneak peek, there are a few surprises to take in, including additional dialogue that reveals a pretty big Star Wars secret. How did the Rebels get their hands on the info about the upcoming Death Star weapons test? Mon
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 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,
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
Yes, that is Mon Mothma you see standing in front of that familiar neon green command center. First introduced in Return of the Jedi, Mothma served in the Galactic Senate and Imperial Senate as the representative of Chandrila, the leader of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and the first chancellor of the New Republic. At the end of the Clone War,
The first trailer for Star Wars: Rogue One is officially here. We take a closer look at what it all means...
If The Force Awakens had one herculean trial to undertake - relaunch the Star Wars franchise for a new generation of moviegoers - then Rogue One has a mighty task of its own. This is, after all, both a spin-off from the numbered Star Wars entries and also a prequel to 1977's A New Hope.
As history has already taught us, Star Wars sequels aren't necessarily easy to get right.
What Rogue One does offer, however, is the possibility of opening up the Star Wars universe in ways that were previously confined to books, videogames and other media. Director Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla) has pitched his movie as a mash-up of Dirty Dozen and space opera; its basic plot involves the Rebels' attempt to steal
"Good Morning America" debuted the teaser trailer for the first standalone story in the "Star Wars" universe, which stars Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Wen Jiang, Mads Mikkelsen, and Alan Tudyk,and hits theaters in December.
Felicity Jones's Jyn takes center stage, like Daisy Ridley's Rey in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." We hear a younger Mon Mothma describe Jyn as on her own from age 15, reckless, aggressive, undisciplined. "This is a rebellion, isn't it?" Jyn quips. "I rebel."
Damn right, she does, and she accepts her mission: A major weapons test is imminent, and they need to know what it is and destroy it. This story is set just before the events of Episode IV, "A New Hope,

Full of Sith claim that Dame Judi Dench is being considered to play the elderly version of Mon Mothma, the senator who co-ordinated and gave the Rebel Alliance briefing in "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi".
Caroline Blakiston played the role in the original, a 30-second scene, while Genevieve O'Reilly played a young version of the character in a small role in "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith". The character has since been expanded greatly in non-canon books, cartoons and comics.
In terms of far more confirmed news, Abrams himself said at the TCAs that filming on the movie officially begins in May in the United Kingdom.
