Three meanings behind Rogue One title: Edwards

As Rogue One: A Star Wars Story edges ever closer to release more information is being drip fed to us from various media outlets.

The latest one is via Empire Magazine who interviewed director Gareth Edwards for their latest edition where he discussed the meaning behind the main title…. of which there are three.

‘Rogue One’ is a military call sign to some extent…this is the first film that’s gone off-piste and is not part of the saga – or the Anakin story — so it’s the ‘rogue’ one, you know?” he said.

“It’s kind of describing [Felicity Jones’ character] as well in a similar way…It has [all] these split, multiple meanings that made it feel like the right choice.”

The third meaning….. well it’s probably the most obvious: a call sign between pilots in the special Rogue squadron of the Rebellion!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens on December 16

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
