SPOILER: Mads Mikkelsen Reveals Who He's Playing In 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'

By Matt O.

With about Six months to go until the highly anticipated release of the first Star Wars spin-off film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters, there is still a great deal of mystery around the film concerning the characters in the film. We have all seen the teaser trailer, but we still have no clue to who any of these people are or what stories are. That is until today, when Hannibal actor Mads Mikkelsen during an interview with Sky News let it slip that he is going to be playing the father of Felicity Jones' character Jyn Erso.

Here is the excerpt below:

"A little scared. I wasn’t really sure if I was wearing a Stormtrooper outfit or anything like that at that point. I wasn’t sure I could fit into that. I read the script. It was very beautiful. And Felicity [Jones] is playing this lovely, strong woman, and I play her father. And that was too much. I’m sorry."

That actor quickly realized that he had said to much, and now the internet is on fire with Star Wars fan theories running rampant!  One of the main theories, which actually surfaced as a rumor months ago is that Jyn Erso's dad aka Mads Mikkelsen is directly involved in the creation of the Death Star, which is one of the main reasons the rebellion recruits Jyn, so they can find the plans to destroy the Death Star.

In case you want to watch the interview for yourself, we have it posted for you below, also go ahead and let us know what you think about this big reveal in the comments down below.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to hit theaters on December 16th, 2016.
