Bail Organa set to appear in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

While the team behind Rogue One: A Star Wars Story might prefer to keep all the movie's secrets under wraps until the film's release, there is no accounting for eagle-eyed fans pausing trailers and sizzle reels to find details. Such as Jimmy Smits (Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith) reprising his role as Bail Organa – Princess Leia's adoptive father – in the film.

Jokingly confronted with a screen grab while appearing on US morning chat show The Talk, Smits looked shocked that anyone would have spotted the brief glimpse, but then demurred, before confirming through humour, talking about "cameos" and "small parts."

So while we don't yet know what Senator Organa will be doing in the film, it might not be that much. Still, it could represent some more screen time for a man who appeared in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack Of The Clones (2002), Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith (2005) and in animated form in both Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, meanwhile, is released worldwide on 16 December.
