Even though we’ve already seen an impressive first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we still know very little about the characters in the movie so far. As of now, the only new character name we know is Jyn Erso, played by Felicity Jones, the young woman recruited by the Rebel Alliance to lead a mission to obtain the plans to the Death Star. But that changes today as a key detail about the Mads Mikkelsen Rogue One character has just been revealed by the Casino Royale star himself.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened up a whole new chapter of everyone’s favorite sci-fi saga last year, but the next new Star Wars movie actually takes us back a few decades.

Below, watch the Men & Chicken trailer.

The Hannibal finale is incredibly satisfying. NBC’s surreal, dark show never scored huge in the ratings, but it’s a miracle a story this ambitious lasted three seasons, and thankfully it ended on a high note, with Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) finally getting some much needed alone time.
After the jump, the cast and crew explain the Hannibal finale.
