‘Rogue One’ International Trailer Hints At Jyn Erso’s Connection To The Force
The latest “Rogue One” trailer reveals Jyn’s motive and possible connection to the force.
The second international trailer dropped for “Rogue One” and it raises some questions. While some have had their theories and suspicions about Felicity Jones’ character, this trailer may encourage those theories. There are some scenes we’ve seen before but we get some supplemental context explaining Jyn Erso’s motives and a potential connection to the force. Take a look at the trailer below.
Jyn’s father’s connection to the mission allowed us to theorize Jyn’s involvement. But now it sounds like Jyn becomes involved when her father sends a message to the rebellion referencing his daughter. This explains her motive and why the rebellion specifically sought her out.
What interests me even more is the flashback of her mother. She gives Jyn a clear crystal as she says “trust the force.” I’m curious as to whether or not this crystal is a lightsaber crystal. Usually lightsaber crystals have a color but there is a case in the Expanded Universe (non-canon) of a powerful crystal with these properties. It was known as the Kaiburr crystal (not Kyber, that’s different) and it had a strong connection to the force.
Since the Expanded Universe is no longer canon, this theory is very loosely based. But if we look at what’s happened in “Star Wars Rebels” and our interview with Timothy Zahn, it proves it is plausible. If not, I’m still excited for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
