“Rogue One” Jimmy Kimmel Video: Watch “Star Wars Story” Cast Interview!
The cast of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story appeared on Friday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Also, two exclusive clips from the highly anticipated film were shown. Watch the videos below!
One day before the world premiere of the stand-alone film, Jimmy Kimmel hosted all the key players on a special week-ending episode of his show. Stars participating included Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Mads Mikkelsen and Alan Tudyk. That’s in addition to fellow cast members Riz Ahmed, Donnie Yen, Ben Mendelsohn and director Gareth Edwards. They first talked about having already seen the movie, although Mikkelsen admitted he actually hasn’t watched it yet.
After that, some of them discussed their roles. Tudyk, who plays K-2SO, said he wore a leotard to play his 7-foot character, prompting Luna to note he had to stare at his co-star’s “balls” the whole time. Ahmed told Kimmel about the special feeling one gets when on the set of a Star Wars movie, while Yen revealed it was “so cool” to have been given the line, “May the Force be with you.” And Edwards explained that he’s been a maniacal fan of Star Wars since he was a kid, having seen the film more than 300 times.
Luna said that while everyone was told not to take pictures on the set, he actually spoiled part of the film. The actor, who plays Cassian Andor, related how he was Facetiming with his son in Mexico and there were Stormtroopers in the background. Next thing he knew, his kid took a screenshot and then hung up. Luna told Kimmel he was nervous he would get in trouble for that.
Mikkelsen, who’s been in the Bond and Marvel comics films, was asked who he’s “experienced more mania from.” He said Star Wars fans by far because the “base is so curious, so enormous.” And when Kimmel asked the cast if any of them took mementos from the set, Jones confessed, “We all stole something.”
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in theaters on December 16. The world premiere will take place on Saturday in Los Angeles, and we’ll have a live stream. Gossip Cop has video of the two clips from the movie and the cast’s interview with Kimmel.
