A future movie might feature Felicity Jones’ character Jyn Erso, she argues, as no one’s fate is ever inevitable in the Star Wars universe. HeyUGuys asked the actress if she’d ever considered revisiting her role as Jyn Erso, to which she joyfully replied: “Never shut the door on Jyn Erso!”
In Rogue One, Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor undertake a mission to steal the designs for the Death Star from the Galactic Empire before the events of A New Hope. Darth Vader boards a Rebel command ship to obtain the plans, and he kills many troops in the process. When Grand Moff Tarkin orders the Death Star to fire a low-power – but still lethal – shot, Jyn and Cassian console each other.
Jones joked, “There’s a little bit of a nuclear fallout at the end of the film.” “And they said, ‘No, it didn’t feel like that.’ So I thought, “Well, there you have it.” Perhaps there is hope for a comeback. Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, Mads Mikkelsen, Forest Whitaker, and Ben Mendelsohn complete the Rogue One cast.
Both Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K) and the whole Skywalker Saga are available now.
