The casting for the “Star Wars” spin-off film, Rogue One, has officially begun.
Diego Luna has officially joined the cast as of this week. He role has not been announced. Luna is most known for his roles in Y Tu Mamá También and Elysium.
The plot for Rogue One is said to follow a group of resistance fighters who attempt to steal the blueprints to the Death Star. Not much is known about the plot other than that but it does date the film as taking place before the original trilogy. This possibly means that the whole plot will be focused around what we already know is a failed attempt. More plot details are expected to be released over the next few months.
Luna joins already announced cast members, Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed, Sam Claflin, and Ben Mendelsohn.
The officially named Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One is set to be released on Dec. 16, 2016, which seems so far away.
