That’s right, Mikkelsen will be playing the father of protagonist Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones)!
Plus, if the rumors are true about her father being an Oppenheimer type character and helping in the creation of the Death Star, it’s probably a deeply rich role.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is directed by Gareth Edwards and set to arrive in theaters on December 16, 2016.
