Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: We know that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will revolve around a group of rebels as they attempt to steal the plans for the evil Death Star, but what does the title itself actually mean? Director Gareth Edwards says it's "a military call sign to some extent" and also that the movie "is not part of the saga -- or the Anakin story -- so it’s the 'rogue' one, you know?" Edwards also says the title refers to the roguish personality of Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones). [Empire]
