With Rogue One ending where A New Hope begins, there have been strong rumors we’ll see Princess Leia obtaining the plans to the Death Star at the end of the movie. Now an interview with Gareth Edwards from France has put more smoke on the fire of the rumors.
StarWarsNewsNet spotted the interview and with the help of some French Star Wars fans had it translated. Edwards would only give simple answers to the questions, but the Leia and Artoo ones are interesting:
“Q: Will there be Jedi?
A: Technically yes.
Q: Will there be lightsabers?
A: Darth Vader has one.
Q: Luke Skywalker?
Q: Will we see Princess Leia?
A: I cannot answer.
A: I cannot answer.”
According to friends on Twitter, the exact words Edwards used were “I don’t want to ruin it for people”, not “I cannot answer”. That’s even bigger.
Edwards also confirms in the interview that there won’t be an opening crawl in the movie, which we knew last week when the twenty minutes of the movie was screened in Mexico.
