Felicity Jones Wants a Star Wars Reincarnation for Jyn Erso – /Film

Star Wars Reincarnation

At a time when Disney clung to recognizable icons in star wars mythos to retain a sense of familiarity for the audience, one of the company’s biggest creative risks Rogue One: A Star Wars Storya film that – spoiler alert – kills off all the main protagonists by the time the end credits roll.

But in a new interview, Felicity Joneswho played rebel leader Jyn Erso in the 2016 film, says she wants Jyn to be reincarnated because her character has “unfinished business.”

Jones spoke with The Hollywood Reporter for an interview, and I don’t know if the reporter got up to grab a snack or go to the bathroom at a key point in RogueOnethe highlight, but here’s how part of the interview went:

THR: The fate of your character Jyn Erso is unclear at the end of RogueOne. Have there been talks of a sequel?

Jones: I keep saying reincarnation is totally possible in the Star Wars universe [laughs]. So I think there is unfinished business for Jyn for sure.

THR: I heard that Disney has an opportunity to do a second movie which they keep expanding. Would you like to see Jyn return – a sequel, spin-off or something else?

Jones: I think it would be fascinating to watch her grow older and wiser and battle the dark forces in the universe that there are so many with.

Before I go any further, I need to make sure we’re all on the same page on something. Jyn Erso is super dead, right? I mean, I know there’s a scene in the movie depicting a massive ray of explosion that goes past Jyn and Cassian Andor, who tragically kiss as the music swells. But there aren’t any conspiracy theories suggesting these characters are somehow actually alive, are there? Because… I mean, come on, people. Just because you didn’t see their skin melt off their faces like Sarah Connor’s nightmare in Terminator 2 does not mean that they inexplicably survived.

Jones’ use of the word reincarnation seems to indicate that at least she knows her character is dead, but the second answer – about Jyn aging – calls that into question. Does she hope a reincarnated version of Jyn is the aging one? And if she’s serious, does she think she’d play this reincarnated version of the character? Granted, I’m no expert on reincarnation, but I don’t think it involves a soul coming back in an exact copy of the same body it inhabited during its previous life cycle. It should be noted that there is precedent for the idea of ​​reincarnation in the star wars universe, though it’s almost entirely relegated to “legend” stories that no longer fall within accepted Disney canon.

It’s just an incredibly odd exchange, from the interviewer’s questionable interpretation of the film’s climactic scene to Jones’ bizarre response. It should be clear that if Jones is indeed contractually obligated to appear as Jyn again, she will appear in a story that falls on the timeline at some point before her character’s death. But then again, I didn’t think it was possible for the damn emperor to have survived long enough to appear in The Rise of Skywalkerso sure – bring the zombie Jyn!
