Meeting a new protagonist in the Star Wars universe is always an exciting prospect. Who can forget the first time they were introduced to conflicted farm boy Luke Skywalker? Or Padawan Obi Wan Kenobi? And most recently, Daisy Ridley's enigmatic Rey?

A new protagonist means it's time for a brand new story, so it'll be great to finally catch up with Felicity Jones' Jyn Erso, learning who she is, what motivates her and where she ultimately winds up.

Based on the trailers, Jyn is a determined yet humorous young woman who is deeply loyal to the Rebellion's cause. Just what role does she play in the eventual destruction of the Death Star?
