After the tragic passing of Carrie Fisher, Lucasfilm was left in an awkward position in regard to the new Star Wars saga that is currently underway. Now it looks like we can thankfully go ahead and take one icky option off the table.
The version of Rogue One we saw on the big screen was not the movie first conceived by Lucasfilm, and it turns out that it almost featured a few Jedi — including one that would’ve had a close connection to Jyn.
The Star Wars animated series Rebels is set just a couple of years before the events of Rogue One, and director Gareth Edwards made sure to slip in a few nods for keen-eyed fans. But this should help in case you missed them on the big screen.
