The much anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars story is set to release on 16th December and its team kick started celebrations at the Ritz-Carlton Tokyo yesterday to promote the film. Felicity Jones wore a quirky satin striped dress for the event
“I feel like I’m standing on sacred ground,” Director Gareth Edwards told the crowd of journalists recently.
One the major theme of the film that has been highlighted is that it contains a strong female lead. “People keep saying how amazing it is having a female lead and i just sort of feel, well, of course!” said Felicity Jones, “It shouldn’t be such a big deal. We are half the population.”
Gareth Edwards agrees agreed saying, “Obviously we have a female lead but I didn’t want to view it that way because the typical thing to do is to go overly into a badass stereotype of a tough woman that no one relates to.”
“Rogue One” tells the story of a group of unlikely heroes, who in a time of conflict band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
