Along with telling us that Emily Blunt may be in line to play Captain Marvel, the latest episode of Meet The Movie press has revealed another interesting rumor. According to co-host El Mayimbe, Felicity Jones will be playing Boba Fett’s daughter in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One.
While unconfirmed, this does open up several interesting questions, chief amongst them being whether her character will be a villain or hero in the film. We know that the plot revolves around the Rebels trying to steal the plans for the Death Star, but which side will Jones’ character take?

The other major question here is that of timing. Rogue One is set before A New Hope, which takes place twenty or so years after Episode III. If you recall, Fett was in his early teens in Episode III. Meaning, that if Jones is playing Fett’s daughter, who’s presumably going to be in her 20s given the actress’ age, she would have had to have been born some time around when Episode II takes place, when Fett was only a young boy.
Truthfully, nothing about this rumor particularly adds up, and for now, I wouldn’t take it too seriously. We’ll let you know if anything further develops with this one, but for now, tell us, do you think Felicity Jones could be playing Boba Fett’s daughter in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One?
