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).
