Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is rapidly approaching, with fans anticipating it with a bit of curiosity, as it is the first Star Wars film to break away from the usual trilogy format. Riz Ahmed, who is playing a rebel pilot in the movie, recently partook in an interview with The Wrap and shed some light on the project:
“The film is about complex characters and loyalties and murky pasts. The film is a little edgier, with people making these huge compromises. History isn’t always clear.”
He then proceeded to state the following:
“I don’t think it will disappoint.”
The movie deals with a very heavy plot; a team of rebels who go on a mission to retrieve the Death Star plans? Not exactly safety-ensuring, and it makes it even worse if the team isn’t able to trust/get along with each other. Fans also know that one of their favorite Sith lords will be returning, as the film takes place before A New Hope. Rogue One is only months away, but stay tuned for updates that drop in the time being!
