Felicity Jones Lightsaber Color Choice is Pink

pink lightsaber hard returnOn the latest episode of Fangirls Going Rogue, we were totally jazzed about the first standalone Star Wars movie, Rogue One. Now, how about this? When star Felicity Jones was asked about her lightsaber color of choice, she gave the best possible answer: “Pink.”

Although, side-eyes are in order to MTV for hedging the first question with “What is it like being the female lead in new ‘Star Wars’?” When Hollywood announces a lead, which typically is a man, no one asks him what it’s like to be the male lead. Of course, some folks out there seem to still be expecting the “Han Solo, Boba Fett, and bounty hunters all steal the Death Star plans” movie… We’ll see.

Why Aren’t There Any Pink Lightsabers? is one of FANgirl’s highest-performing posts. Fangirls everywhere rejoice in Jones’ style.
