We’re less than eight months away from the big screen release of Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and, par for the course when it comes to news from a galaxy far, far away, a lot of specific details about the film are still shrouded in mystery. That shroud does get slightly pulled back today, however. Star Mads Mikkelsen was a guest on Sky News Thursday morning and he revealed his character’s connection to Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso.

“Felicity plays a young, strong woman,” says Mads Mikkelsen, “And I play her father.”

Rogue One tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. Felicity Jones and Mads Mikklesen are joined in the cast by Diego Luna (Milk, Killing Them Softly), Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline, Mississippi Grind), Donnie Yen (Ip Man, Blade II), Jiang Wen (Let the Bullets Fly, Devils on the Doorstep), Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), Alan Tudyk (Firefly) who plays a performance-capture character in the film, and Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler, Four Lions).

John Knoll, the Academy Award-winning visual effects supervisor who currently serves as chief creative officer at Industrial Light & Magic, is executive producing the film along with Simon Emanuel (The Dark Knight Rises, Fast & Furious 6) and Jason McGatlin (Tintin, War of the Worlds). Kathleen Kennedy and Tony To (“Band of Brothers,” “The Pacific”) are on board to produce with John Swartz (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) attached to co-produce. It was also recently confirmed that Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The King’s Speech) will be providing the score.

Directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set for release on December 16, 2016.
