Star Wars sure likes characters that had Daddy issues…
**Warning spoilers for the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story follow**
It seems like only the other day nerds around the world actually watching the Rio Olympics to catch the BRAND NEW Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer. While the cool kids just waited for the trailer to hit social media.

Anyway, on the heels of that trailer release came the international trailer which included ONE HUGE PLOT POINT missing from the trailer released during the Olympics!
During a scene we have now seen several times, Jyn Erso is being told about the mission from Mon Mothma while under arrest – though in the international trailer we stay in this moment a little longer, long enough to find out that Jyn father, Galen Erso (who is being played by Mads Mikkelsen and has yet to be seen) was the one to sent the transmission about the Death Star’s creation!
I mean, not too surprising but still!
Sure, we now know a little more about the film’s plot but there is still a lot that is left to a geek’s imagination. We still need the full backstory to why Jyn’s father sent the transmission…so there is that to look forward too!
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters December 16th!
