We know Jyn’s team face peril at every turn when attempting to get their hands on the battle station’s blueprints, so could Vader meet Jyn in battle? Or could their characters come face to face if she steals aboard an Imperial ship to nab the plans from the mysterious Krennic?

We’ll have to wait until December to find out.
Felicity Jones is currently starring in Inferno, in UK cinemas from 14th October
