  1. Screen Rant had an interesting exchange of speculative comments (here it is, verbatim):

    Hot-D:

    Am i the only one who think Felicity Jones is playing Leia???

    Max:

    Didn’t even cross my mind but now that I see the picture after reading your comment I do see it. Don’t get me wrong I don’t think it is her but I do get what you’re saying, or seeing.

    Hot-D:

    Maybe she goes undercover and join the rebel, and at the climax of the movie she is revealed to be Leia.

    I hope this is true, this is the best way to introduce Leia before the events of OT, and this is also awesome because this makes Leia to be one of the rebels who stole the Death Star plan.

    g:

    see fellow readers – now here is someone who is thinking outside the box and quite creatively I might say – and if you end up being right – cudos to you !
