Rogue One Stormtrooper On A Camel!

StarWarsNewsNet found an interesting comment from Felicity Jones with regards Rogue One, in a Telegraph newspaper article publicising her upcoming film, Inferno.

In a recent interview with, Jones talked about how she flew to Jordan to begin filming ‘Rogue One’ in the desert of Wadi Rum, after wrapping her new film ‘Inferno’ last July. The actress, who plays Jyn Erso, a rebel spy on a secret mission to steal the plans to the Death Star spoke a little about the first shot she was involved in:

‘One of the first shots featured a Stormtrooper sitting on a camel, and I thought to myself: “Wow, I’m in Star Wars!”’

We can only assume that the camel will be replaced in post production, but it is fun to feel the emotion of an actor as they first embrace the Star Wars franchise.
