Felicity Jones Cast in New Star Wars Spinoff 

Bob Iger announced today on the Disney shareholders call that Oscar nominated actress Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) will be starring in the first Star Wars spinoff film. The title of that film is Rogue One. I’m guessing Felicity is an X-Wing pilot, or possibly the daughter of one… Rogue One will be directed by Gareth Edwards, written by Chris Weitz, and scored by Alexandre Desplat.

Iger also announced Star Wars Episode VIII will arrive in theaters May 26th, 2017. Rian Johnson is writing & directing Episode VIII.

    I hope it’s that she’s a pilot! Would be great to have a Star Wars film with a female as the main protagonist.
