Disney will be releasing the first of many upcoming Star Wars spin-off films on December 16 of this year, but so far very few plot details have been revealed. All that is known is the basic premise, which is that Rogue One will follow a group of Rebel fighters as they attempt to steal the Death Star plans away from the Empire. Directed by Gareth Edwards, this is to be the first film since Disney’s acquisition of the Star Wars license that will not be a main episode in the overall saga.
With very few plot details to go on, one appears to have surfaced: the name of the character played by Felicity Jones. Information reportedly found on a casting site indicates that Jones’ role is doubled by an actor named Gabriele Fritz.
The name of the photo double’s character? Lyra Erso.
So far, no one seems to know the significance of this name. If any Star Wars buffs can think of a connection within the expanded continuity, we’d sure love to hear about it.
