Felicity Jones Does Not Want Her 'Rogue One' Character To Be Objectified: 'We're Not Looking At Her Body'

Felicity Jones does not want her Rogue One: A Star Wars Story leading role character, Jyn Erso, to be seen by audiences as an object!

“It shouldn’t be like ‘Oh, now she’s being strong’ and we will have to suddenly see that as a surprise. It’s literally down to the costume,” the 33-year-old actress expressed while appearing on Entertainment Weekly Radio. “I didn’t want her to be kind of running around in a tank top, a sleeveless top. It should be just that she’s focused on what she has to be doing. She has a very particular task ahead of her and that’s where the focus is. We’re not objectifying her. We’re not looking at her body.”

“You relate to her, I hope, as a person, as a character that you care about,” Felicity added. “And that’s at the forefront of your mind when you’re watching the film. And I think for all the characters, it is an ensemble film in the sense that you connect with each one of them and have empathy for each one of them in a different way. They all have their own story.”

FYI: Felicity is wearing a Gucci dress paired with Dior Fine Jewelry.

Felicity Jones Says That 'Rogue One' Having A Female Lead 'Shouldn't Be Such A Big Deal'

Felicity Jones couldn’t be more excited to be the lead in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but she doesn’t think it’s necessary to emphasize that she’s a “female lead.”

“People keep saying how amazing it is having a female lead and I just sort of feel, well, of course!,” the 33-year-old actress told the Metro. “It shouldn’t be such a big deal. We are half the population.”

“Obviously we have a female lead but I didn’t want to view it that way because the typical thing to do is to go overly into a badass stereotype of a tough woman that no one relates to,” director Gareth Edwards added.

Is a 'Rogue One' Sequel Happening? Filmmakers Reveal Plans

The highly anticipated movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is about to hit theaters and something fans will want to know is if a sequel is in the works!

Well, the movie’s creative team is speaking out about plans for more films in the franchise.

Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm and the producer of the movie, told Empire magazine that there will NOT be a sequel to Rogue One.

Gareth Edwards, the director of Rogue One, says that a “sequel will be directed by George Lucas,” referring to the movie Star Wars: A New Hope. As you probably know, Rogue One is a prequel to the Episode IV.

The upcoming movie is a war film and fans are speculating that not many of the characters, possibly even Felicity Jones‘ Jyn Erso, will survive in the end. We will have to wait until the movie is released on December 16 to find out!
