A cast list from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has surfaced online. If it’s the real thing, we have some interesting information on some of the other characters from the original Star Wars trilogy that will be making an appearance. We already know a few of the characters from the original trilogy that will be in it like Darth Vader, but there are a few others that I think you’ll be interested in learning about.
Here is what tphilb said on his Reddit page:
“Because of my line of work, the end credits for Rogue One came across my desk the other day. While I couldn’t take a picture of the screen (phone not allowed, and I like my job), I was able to scribble enough notes that offer some information about who is (and is not) in the film.”
After going through the list of actors we already know are in the film these names pop up:
Princess Leia, who is being played by an actress named Ingvild Deila and it was followed by a note that said, “…with Special Thanks to Carrie Fisher.” I was hoping that we’d see a young version of the character in the movie!
Then there’s Governor Tarkin, who we already knew would be in the film and was even teased in a promo spot. It’s revealed that the character is being played by Guy Henry, and it came with a note that said, “…with Special Thanks to Peter Cushing.”
General Dodonna is said to be in the film and he is being played by Ian McElhinney from Game of Thrones.
Then there’s C3PO, and as you’d expect, Anthony Daniels will be reprising the role.
