    with production slated to begin in January

    Was this article posted a month late or something? These sites should really proof read their stuff before posting.

    would be interesting to get a major female droid character for once.

    maybe they'll explain that the reason why Han dislikes 3PO is because he reminds him of this female droid. Maybe Han and the droid broke up.[face_laugh]

    or she might be an alien...i have the feeling she's an alien, coz we didnt see much alien main characters in star wars lately (maz was only in a couple of scene, whereas PWB seems to be part of an ensemble lke K2SO)

    Yeah, we are definitely due for a new main character alien. I'm cool with that idea.

    She's a great actress, though, in my opinion (loved her in Crashing especially) so I feel like it is a good choice.

    I am betting that she will be an alien partner for Woody Harrelson's Character. Like Chewie is to Han.

    They also seemed to have overlooked EV-9D9 and FLO (WA-7). But, as they say, they are talking about a prominent role.

    I hope it isn't another droid. Every film since has had some robot buddy in it. But what the films lack is a female alien main character. So if she is going to play a non human, an alien would be a better choice. And if she does play a "female" droid, I hope they don't make it very feminine looking (no metal breasts please). Sure a feminine voice makes sense, but just as R2 and co don't need certain male things to be called "he", a new "female" droid can lack certain womanly things.

    Actually there have been many female droids in Star Wars. Unfortunately though, many people don't count the Prequels. :rolleyes:

    If she is a droid I wouldn't be surprised if she is the K-2SO of this movie. And given Waller-Bridge's background as a comedic actress that could be the case. Most of the humour could come from her back and forth banter with Alden and Harrelson depending on who she shares scenes with or both if she shares scenes with both of them. Alan Tudyk while not a comedic actor persay does have a nack for natural comedy and they used that to their advantage in Rogue One and I thought it worked out well. As for the first female droid yeah obviously we've had minor ones but I guess what they were trying to say was this is the first possible one in a big role they just worded it wrong. But we'll see where it goes.

    She will voice the dianoga. We will be getting the much-demanded backstory and gratuitous cameo of the dianoga so that we find out how she wound up in that trash compactor.
