3+ years on it’s hard to imagine Rogue One with anyone but the magnificent Admiral Raddus in charge of the Profundity, leading the charge against the Empire over Scarif, bt a tweet this week from Rogue One writer Gary Whitta has revealed that originally the Mon Cal in charge was a different character altogether (and a total legend).

It would certainly have been interesting to see a younger Ackbar, 4 years before Return of the Jedi, but who’d want to miss out on meeting the awesome Raddus? Fate took the right turn when J.J. took Ackbar for The Force Awakens.
