Like many Star Wars fans, I am eagerly counting down the days until Episode 8 hits theaters. Thanks in no small part to J.J. Abrams, we are once more hungry to return to a galaxy far far away.
In the meantime, come December, we will have a small consolation in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Starring Felicity Jones (Catherine Moreland in the 2007 Northanger Abbey) as Jyn Erso, this film looks to be the morsel the fans will need to cling to until next December. Jyn is a badass, a woman who is not afraid to break the rules. I like her already.
And for me, personally, this film bring together two of my favorite fandoms.
Whether it is true to the Star Wars universe and the narrative, is to be seen. I can only hope that it will be.
Enjoy your weekend.
