With ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘ dropping later this year we’re getting hit lots of rumors and if these cameo ones prove to be true, they could greatly influence the direction of the film. Obviously while these are rumors they could also be huge spoilers so until a trailer drops if you want to go into this fully surprised you might just want to head to the next story.
Last chance to turn back! If you’re dying to know, though, scroll down past the spoiler warning!
So what cameo rumors have dropped so far? For one, there is word that Han Solo would pop up briefly to guide the rebels towards someone to hire for their needs. No word if this would be a CGI’d Ford or the soon to be re-cast Solo for the stand alone film. Related to this, it was rumored that Jabba the Hutt was brokering information to the Rebel Alliance which could have come directly after Solo sent them his way. With the stand alone Solo film taking place about eight years prior to ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,’ it could still need him cast before filming the scene mentioned above.
Who else could pop up? Well the bounty hunters from ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ including Bossk, Dengar, 4-LOM, Zuckuss, IG-88, as well as some of the bounty hunters from ‘The Clone Wars’ could be making an appearance. If this happened you could color me surprised if we didn’t see Boba Fett show up as well.
One random rumor also places Yoda showing up on Dagobah who doesn’t actually help the Rebels but sends them on their way. This doesn’t feel like it fits with what we know about the film so far but I suppose that anything is possible.
The original plot for the story which was leaked did say that “The story follows a group of bounty hunters who were hired for the job” of stealing plans for the Death Star so it would seem that if this still proves true the cameo of bounty hunters could take place while they are trying to recruit those who would be willing to risk taking business that would directly have them working against The Empire.
There was also a previous rumor that Darth Vader might have a major part to play in the film though no word on that as of late.
I mean, it would make sense for at least a few of these rogues being willing to work against Vader though I’m not sure if we would actually see all of them taking the call.
Which cameo rumors do you think would fit? Who will be showing up on the big screen later this year? Share your thoughts below!
