Almost four decades after A New Hope blasted its way into theaters, the Star Wars franchise is as strong as ever. The series experienced a total renaissance with the release of J.J. Abrams' The Force Awakens last year, and it's now poised to continue that successful trend with the highly anticipated release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on December 16. Not only will Rogue One tell the awesome story of how the Rebels acquired the plans for the Death Star, but it will also kick off the new tradition of standalone Star Wars movies.

However, as excited as we are for Rogue One, we still have some concerns. As much as we love the Star Wars saga, it has made plenty of mistakes over the course of the last 40 years. With that in mind, we've compiled a list of Star Wars mistakes that Rogue One absolutely needs to avoid in order to succeed. These issues have hindered previous adventures in the galaxy far, far away, and it's our hope that the folks behind Rogue One have learned from these mistakes. Now let's get started with an issue that could potentially ruin the film's central heroine:

Rogue One Jyn Erso

Don't Make Jyn Erso Force Sensitive

At first, Rogue One seemed like a genuine breath of fresh air for its newfound emphasis on the scoundrels of the Star Wars universe. After years of focusing on the Jedi, it felt like a welcome change of pace to see a movie based on the non-powered characters in this galaxy. However, several of Rogue One's recent trailers have shown Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) maintaining a deep-seated faith in The Force. That's fine, but that's as far as it should go. Rogue One should set itself apart by having these characters view The Force from an outsider's perspective, and NOT take the easy way out by making Jyn a Jedi in the third act. We already have Rey for that.
