Diego Luna set to star in 'Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One'

The amazing world of Star Wars continues to grow......

After snagging director Gareth Edwards, The Theory of Everything star Felicity Jones, Sam Clafin, Riz Ahmed and acclaimed character actor Ben Mendelsohn, Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One has now added another major star to the mix. Diego Luna, best known for Elysium and Milk, will star alongside those other acclaimed actors in Rogue One, the Star Wars Anthology film set to focus on the Rebel heist of the Death Star plans. According to Variety, Luna will play a Rebel fighter in a large ensemble cast akin to The Dirty Dozen and Saving Private Ryan. Mendelsohn is set to play the lead villain in the film, and it's likely that we will hear many more casting announcements for Rogue One in the near future.

The future of Star Wars is so promising. So very promising. Luna is another great actor to add into the mix for Rogue One, a film that is already stacked with impressive actors. Jones, Clafin, Ahmed, Luna and Mendelsohn would make a solid cast on their own, and the fact that we're about to have more big name actors joining is particularly exciting. Star Wars: Episode VII- The Force Awakens has a plethora of talented actors and it looks like Rogue One could be even more amazing. Although it is slightly disappointing that Rogue One will focus on a story that we already know the end to, I couldn't be more excited to see how this film will shape up with this cast and Edwards behind the camera. Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One is set to hit theaters on December 18, 2016.
