Rumor: First Details on Forest Whitaker’s Role in ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Revealed

While not much is known about any of the characters in Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the biggest one that is the biggest mystery is who Forest Whitaker is playing. Other members of the cast have teased and spoken to the media but not a peep has been heard from Whitaker. Now, according to MakingStarWars, we may have a hint about who he could be portraying.

  • Forest Whitaker’s character uses a cane.

  • It appears he has one leg and uses a cane as a crutch to walk.

  • He appears to be a veteran of some battles, but it isn’t clear if he lost his leg fighting in the Clone Wars or against the Empire.

  • Based on a differentiated code name from the rest of the rebels in the movie, it appears he is likely good but maybe a bounty hunter affiliated type (more on this later).

  • He seems to be a “good guy” in Rogue One. 

  • He has a cape and his costume is a hodgepodge of different things (think of someone you might see at Maz’s castle).

This character sounds like a badass so hopefully he will get more screen time than Boba Fett. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December
