For a few months now, rumors have been swirling around that Valene Kane would play Lyra Erso, Jyn’s mother in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Recently during an interview with BelfastLive, Valene confirmed that she did work on Rogue One:
“I grew up watching Stars Wars and I didn’t believe it was happening until I was filming in Iceland. It has a really edgy independent vibe.”
We know that there will be flashbacks in the film regarding the Erso family, so it all makes sense that Jyn’s mother would be present. We even see a Younger Krennic (presumably) with his squad of Death Troopers walking towards the Erso family home in the behind-the-scenes reel.
While browsing YouTube, I can across a Korean “Go Rogue” advertisement featuring a new image of Saw Gererra:
We haven’t gotten a ton of images of Saw, so any new ones are welcomed. We are now only three days away from the official Rogue One product line launch and 79 days away from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. We are nearly there!
Thanks to Star Wars News Net for the heads-up!
