"I rebel".

It looks that Jyn Erso is an anarchist, unmotivated by the noble goals of the Alliance. And as the story progresses, her character struggles with maintaining her rebellious nature against a new inner call to focus towards an end goal. Similar to Han Solo's cynicism.

While this idea may seem obvious, based on the trailer, it also runs different from other familiar tropes of the outsider with a personal grudge against the machine. Then a benefactor comes to energize that grudge into something greater. Instead, to me it looks like Erso has a grudge against all powers that be. It could be some interesting character development later, in a followup film (if later comes).

How about Mon Mothma? I only watched once ...but is that the same person from the originals??? If she looks pretty great for her age. Gotta be a different actor, right?

My first reaction was the same. It's a different actor, but similar to the original. This actor, Genevieve O'Reilly, was in deleted scenes from Revenge of the Sith. Cool that she gets to come back. And the realtime aging kinda works out. Thirteen years realtime since Ep3, 19-20 story years since then.
