Gareth Edwards has finally explained the reasons behind the title to the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Edwards told Empire that while “Rogue One is a military call sign to some extent,” it’s also the first film in the Star Wars universe “that’s gone off-piste and is not part of the saga – or the Anakin story – so it’s the ‘rogue’ one.”

The director also explained that the title refers to the roguish personality of the film’s leading lady, Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) so the title is “kind of describing her as well in a similar way.”

Edwards went onto say that the “split, multiple meanings” behind Rogue One ultimately “made it feel like the right choice.”
