Felicity Jones is the new Star Wars leading character, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the newest installment coming out in a few short months, but Yahoo reveals the inspiration for Jones’ character on-screen. So, who do you have to thank for Felcitity Jones’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on-screen character?

“Well, it’s interesting because I didn’t know  that I would be playing Jyn, who is very much inspired by Sigourney’s character [in Aliens. So it’s interesting that we had worked together. But I’ve been so inspired by her work and she was a role model growing up.”

Felicity Jones also revealed her preparation for the new Star Wars film, and some of  what she felt the character brought to Aliens, according to Cinemablend.

“No, no, just in terms of, obviously, you have different references that you look at. And I love the qualities that she brought to that part. And early on in my research it was one of the films that I watched that informed my process.”

Felicity Jones certainly sets the bar high when you consider the mega success of the Alien franchise. Though, Jones and company are an extension of the arguably more popular Sci-fi franchise Star Wars.

 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story also has a lot to prove with the mega success of its family of films, as this marks the first time that the franchise is stepping out side its directly episodic format. Star Wars: The Force Awakens certainly met with a lot of success, but then again, it was also the first film in several decades.

Felicity Jones carries a lot on her shoulders, as she has a lot of great, iconic characters to surpass or match up with, but any critiques should certainly be saved for after December, 2016.
