most anticipated movies of 2016 rogue one

Alan Tudyk Speaks!

Speaking with Comic Book Resources, the wonderful Alan Tudyk did not confirm whether or not his motion capture character is a droid with shifting allegiances, but he did give the requisite “being on a Star Wars set is amazing!’ speech that every actor is obligated to give. However, the always self-deprecating actor gave his version a little twist:

“It’s amazing. Going to work — even though it’s difficult, you always hear that, film acting, there are moments where’s it’s very cold and you have to where something that isn’t necessarily warm, and 12 hours days or more. But when you’re doing “Star Wars” you’re looking around at all the magic that’s around you. And it sparks the kid in you, it immediately goes away. Or at least within an hour or two. At least around lunch it’ll go away.”

This man is a national treasure. Nay! A galactic treasure.

Donnie Yen Also Speaks! A Little!

The great Donnie Yen, best known for his genuinely badass work in various Chinese action movies, is playinganother one of Rogue One‘s unknown characters. We know from carefully examining the lone cast photo that his character appears to be blind, which is very interesting indeed. Anyway, he recently participated in a Reddit AMA and had this to say about the film:

“I think it’s really flattering to be the first Chinese actor in the Star Wars universe and I have full confidence Rogue One will do extremely well, because the force is with me.”

Is it possible, and this is just conjecture, that Yen’s character is a blind warrior who excels in battle because he has some connection to the Force? Perhaps not enough to be a Jedi, but enough to give him an edge. Chew on that until we hear more.
