Who/what is the ‘Rogue One’ in ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’?

In an exclusive interview with Empire Magazine, Director Gareth Edwards muses on who/what the “Rogue One” in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story could possibly mean. He says that it is “‘a military call sign to some extent.” He also says that because this it is “‘the first film that’s gone off-piste and is not part of the saga – or the Anakin story – so it’s the ‘rogue’ one, you know?'” Personally, and I have no information, but potential speculative spoilers ahead……..I think this is the code name for Jyn Erso’s (Felicity Jones) father, Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen).

Greg was born and raised with a love for wanting to understand how life, the universe and everything worked, so you can say his mind would always want to be in a galaxy far, far away. He also has a love for most things nerdy, including Ghostbusters, Lord of the Rings, Marvel, DC Comics and Harry Potter. He is very excited to have found a “home” to express his various views on Star Wars and everything else that can be found on Jakku. Hope it earns him more than one quarter portion.
