A lot of fan theories have been circulating the web ever since the announcement and release of Star Wars Episode VII : The Force Awakens (TFA). Some of those theories caught my attention and seemed either really convincing or somewhat plausible. Since the recent release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (RO), one of latter kind of theories seems to be debunked; the one where Rogue one could possibly be the Knights of Ren (KoR).
The Rogues of Ren
Let me start off by Explaining this theory in a nutshell. A few weeks ago me and my wife stumbled upon a video by the film theorists about theory where they found some minor evidence to back up this theory. It showed us a picture of some concept art for TFA where there were some concept character designs of the KoR. In this concept design, the Knights were given a simple descriptive name which very coincidentally lined up perfectly with the way the main characters of RO were portrayed: The Heavy (Baze Malbus), The Armory (Bodhi Rook), The Sniper (Cassian Andor), The Monk (Chirrut Îmwe) and The Rogue (Jyn Erso).
Unfortunately, as some of you might already know *SPOILER ALERT* they all die at the end of the movie… which automatically means this theory is debunked, right? Let me get back at that in a moment.
