Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”; Lucasfilm/Disney(NEW YORK) — A brand new, extended TV spot for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story seems to show the budding relationship between Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso and Diego Luna’s Captain Cassian.
The pair take part in a daring mission to steal the plans to the Empire’s dreaded Death Star, and as sometimes happens with intense circumstances, it seems the pair become more than battle buddies.
Specifically, the spot, subtitled “Jyn and Cassian” only teases glimpses of footage we haven’t seen before, but those are key to the pair: specifically Jyn clenching the rebel pilot’s hand, and the pair entering an Imperial facility disguised as baddies. “Hope begins with them,” a title card reads.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, and Forest Whitaker, opens December 16 from Disney, the parent company of ABC News.
