MakingStarWars.net ran an article that contained some rumoured details about Forest Whitaker's character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Stor. What follows could be spoilery...
* Forest Whitaker’s character uses a cane.
* It appears he has one leg and uses a cane as a crutch to walk.
* He appears to be a veteran of some battles, but it isn’t clear if he lost his leg fighting in the Clone Wars or against the Empire.
* Based on a differentiated code name from the rest of the rebels in the movie, it appears he is likely good but maybe a bounty hunter affiliated type
* He seems to be a “good guy” in Rogue One.
* He has a cape and his costume is a hodgepodge of different things (think of someone you might see at Maz’s castle).
I like Forest Whitaker, and he is in good company in Rogue One: A Star Wars Stor when you consider his co-stars. In fact this might prove to be the most talented Star Wars cast in history. I'm really excited about the design of this character, a battle damaged war hero, sounds pretty cool to me. What do you think? Do you like the sound of this character design? Are you a Forest Whitaker fan? Do you expect him to be a hero as reported here? Leave you thoughts in the comments below...
