Mon Mothma will have a pivotal role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Will Bothans have to sacrifice again for Mon Mothma’s plans again?

Mon Mothma is a former senator of the Republic before Palpatine and his Galactic Empire took over the senate. Her biggest part in the movies is the briefing about the 2nd Death Star in Episode VI, where she says the famous line “Many Bothans died to bring us this information”.

According to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy (who, as Entertainment weekly jokingly points out, is the Mon Mothma of Lucasfilm now) the character will have a much more pivotal and vital role in the new movie.

We actually see quite a bit of her. The Rebel alliance is in disarray. Pretty panicked. Up against it. And she is trying the best she can to provide the leadership, in amongst a wide variety of Rebel soldiers that have very differing opinions as to what to do.

Mon Mothma is played in Rogue One by actress Genevieve O’Reilly. Her appearance (well, thanks to the make-up  as well) is so similar to the original from over 30 years ago. Back then in Episode VI Return of the Jedi the role was played by Caroline Blakiston.

O’Reilly played Mon Mothma for the first time 11 years ago for the Revenge of the Sith (Episode III), but her scene was deleted and later included in the DVD as bonus material.

How many Bothans will die in Rogue one: A Star Wars Story so Mon Mothma can bring more important information to the Rebellion?
