The following contains spoilers for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. If you haven't seen it, don't read this.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story adds a great deal to the lore of the Star Wars universe, but it turns out, there's even more out there that we don't know. Gary Whitta, one of the screenwriters of Rogue One, recently took to Twitter to answer many fan questions about how the new movie relates to the rest of Star Wars canon, and his answers are fascinating.

Audiobook seller Audible ran an online discussion yesterday about Star Wars canon in conjunction with the Rogue One related novel Star Wars: Catalyst and writer Gary Whitta joined in to answer some fan questions. Some of his answers are amazing.

Jyn Was Never Meant To Be A Fighter

A great deal of the Star Wars saga up to this point deals with ideas like destiny. Anakin Skywalker is the chosen one, or is at least believed to be. Luke is pretty much predetermined to follow in the footsteps of his father. The same is not true for Jyn Erso. According to Gary Whitta, Jyn's fate in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is pretty much entirely due to nurture rather than nature. If she hadn't been forced to grow up fighting, she surely would have been somebody very different. She could have been a scientist like her father if things had gone differently.
