Chalk this up as a rumor for now, so make sure to take it with a grain of salt! But we have some news on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as far as Forest Whitaker and the character he will be taking on for the upcoming Lucasfilm/Disney movie:
“It appears he has one leg and uses a cane as a crutch to walk. Earlier reports made it seem like he might have one leg but the clarification on the topic is a “robot leg.”
He appears to be a veteran of some battles, but it isn’t clear if he lost his leg fighting in The Clone Wars or against the Empire.
Based on a differentiated code name from the rest of the rebels in the movie, it appears he is likely good but maybe a bounty hunter affiliated type.
He has a cape and his costume is a hodgepodge of different things (think of someone you might see at Maz’s Castle)”.
Plus, we have some pictures of some of the “costumes” some of the characters will be wearing in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story…
