Ever since we found out that the awesome Mad Mikkelsen was cast in A Star Wars Story: Rogue One, we’re sorry but we assumed he was a villain. Hey, the guys rocks as Hannibal, we just see him as a Grand Moff, ok?

Anyway, the actor has been chatting about the role he plays in the movie and, well, could we all be wrong? “It is a very important role, as much I can say [but] no, my character is actually not a bad guy, and then I can not say more. I can also say that the movie will be shot in Iceland and England. And the filming will last for three months.”

We’re not sure if we’re excited or disappointed by the news, to be honest, but all we know is that, good or bad, we cannot wait to see what his role in the movie is.

Rogue One goes into new  territory, exploring the galactic struggle from a ground-war perspective while maintaining that essential Star Wars feel that fans have come to know. Gareth is such an innovative director and I’m so excited to be working with him and the extraordinary ensemble cast he’s selected for ‘Rogue One.’

Rogue One is set for release on December 16, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
