Warning: This post contains spoilers for Rogue One.
Thanks to the most recent Rogue One trailer, we already know that the upcoming Star Wars spinoff features a flashback to the day Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen) — the father of Rebel fighter Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) — was captured by Imperial Forces, including the Empire’s Director of Advanced Weapons Research, Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn). But a new clip released Wednesday gives fans a glimpse into the complicated backstory between the pair.
As Krennic arrives to collect the scientist and bring him back to the Death Star to continue work on the super weapon, Erso attempts to reason with his former friend. However, his plea falls on deaf ears. “You’re confusing peace with terror,” Erso says, to which Krennic responds, “Well, you have to start somewhere.”
