Who was the mentioned jedi in the Rogue One movie?

  • I only saw the Rogue one movie in the theaters yesterday, so I don't remember the exact wording, but in the movie,

    during the attack on Sarif, the Alliance commanders discuss the possibility of calling a jedi friend. If i'm not mistaken, they refer to that person as "she".

    Who did they mean? Leia? Or someone from the Rebels series?

    I can't say for absolute certainty, but I'm pretty sure they didn't say 'her'. And considering it was Bail Organa, and what what we know happens at the beginning of ANH I think it's pretty safe to say it was Obi wan.

    @BigTallJosh I cannot say that for certainty, I will have to watch the movie again, but I was actually baffled by that female pronoun. But user cmv14 in the comment below said: < I saw the movie, and I remember the question "can we trust her" being asked soon after mentioning the jedi comment. I thought this was Leia, but that "her" and the "jedi" were different characters > So I'm not the only one who remembers that reference, but it may well refer to another character, so that's what I'm asking.

    Ahh I see what you mean now! Confusing two parts. Now I'm going to paraphrase here because I can't remember exact quotes. But I'm fairly certain it's asked "What about your Jedi friend, can we get a message to them?" Something else is said and Bail implies he's sending someone (His daughter, Leia) and Mon Mothma replies "Can we trust her?" THEN that is when Bail says he says "With my life".

    Ah, okay, that sounds very plausible. I have to watch the movie again, but i think you are right. Thanks!

    No worries, I've added an answer now :)

    I think two parts of dialogue are being confused here.

    I'm going to paraphrase here because I can't remember exact quotes. But I'm fairly certain the conversation goes as follows:

    "What about your Jedi friend, can we get a message to them?" Something is said about the Jedi friend has been in hiding since the Purge and Bail implies he's sending someone (We know from ANH this is his daughter, Leia). Mon Mothma replies "Can we trust her?" Bail replies "With my life"

    From this and what we know from how A New Hope starts I think it's safe to say the Jedi in question is:

    Obi-Wan Kenobi

    and the 'she' is:

    Leia Organa, Bail Organa's adopted daughter.

    The 'something else' which was said is that the Jedi friend has been in hiding since the Purge.

    Thanks, @MarkEdward I'll edit to make the answer better.

    In the last spoiler tag who is the `his` supposed to be?

    @Brad Bail Organa, I'll edit for clarity.
