Before we find out what’s next for Rey in Rian Johnson’s yet-to-be titled Star Wars: Episode VIII, we’ll get to see how a group of Rebel fighters managed to steal the plans for the Death Star in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The rebels will be going up against a mysterious villain named Director Krennic in the movie, who will be played by Bloodline star Ben Mendelsohn, but that’s all that we currently know about him.

The actor was recently a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he talked about how much he loves everything Star Wars related and how he had to keep his involvement in the project a secret for many months. He was also asked a few questions regarding his role in the highly anticipated movie, but it looks like he couldn’t reveal any details.

You can check out the full interview in the video below.

The movie is currently going through extensive reshoots, which will end a few days before Star Wars Celebration this July, where new footage is expected to be revealed. Bourne veteran Tony Gilroy and stunt coordinator Simon Crane were recently brought on board to help out with the pick-ups. What do you guys think?
