Star Wars “Rogue One” Trailer Brings Diego Luna Into Space


There are a lot of things in this Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer that makes me happy. First of all, it looks seriously amazing. Felicity Jones looks like a real badass. But what makes me the happiest is seeing Diego Luna helping the Rebel Alliance. Why? Because it means one more Latino in outer space. The truth is there was a serious lack of Latinos in sci-fi for the longest time. Starting with Edward James Olmos in Battlestar Gallactica there seemed to be a slow upturn in Latinos in space. Last year we saw Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron in The Force Awakens and now we have Diego Luna stealing the plans for the original Death Star.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, representation is important. I would have loved to have seen a Latino in Star Wars when I was a kid. At least this generation will have Diego and Oscar.
