    LOS ANGELES: It is unlikely to make as big a splash as The Force Awakens but the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has at least caused a ripple in the Force.

    The 100-second teaser released last week led to a frenzy of speculation over the similarity between female lead Felicity Jones, who plays the titular rogue, and Awakens heroine Rey, portrayed by Daisy Ridley.

    People have been trying to work out Rey’s place in the Star Wars family tree since December—with fans speculating that she could be Luke Skywalker’s daughter or Obi-Wan Kenobi’s granddaughter—but many took to Twitter to claim Jones’ character Jyn Erso could be her mother.

    The first standalone Star Wars story, Rogue One is set just before A New Hope—the original film in the blockbuster series—and stars Jones alongside Mads Mikkelsen, Forest Whitaker and Riz Ahmed, in a distinctly indie-flavored cast.
