Star Wars ventured into new territory in 2016 with the arrival of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film detailed how a group of rebels captured the plans to the Death Star, and couriered them to Princess Leia (played by Carrie Fisher), in turn kickstarting the events of the first ever film in the franchise – Star Wars: A New Hope.
Although all of the rebels involved were successful, they didn’t make it out alive.
After battling as best they could on the planet of Scarif, they succeeded in sending the plans to the princess just as the Death Star fired at the imperial base they were in.
This meant that Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), and Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) were killed off as the planet exploded.
However, it sounds like Jyn Erso could be on her way back to screens in future projects.
Could the influential character be gearing up to tell her story from before the events of Rogue One?
Felicity isn’t the only actor speaking about making a return to the franchise.
Beaumont Kin star Dominic Monaghan recently gave a hint about reprising his role as the codebreaker.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Monaghan first confessed: “I’ve not heard anything at all.”
The Lord of the Rings star continued: “Obviously I would always be into the idea of going back, because it’s such a phenomenal project to try and be involved in.
“I’m lucky – I’m friends with Taika Waititi, who I think is doing certainly one of the next Star Wars films.
“So I’ve been giving him a nice casual amount of general hassle to find out if he’s interested in including my character in some way.”
The Star Wars franchise is available to watch on Disney Plus now.
