Ben Mendelsohn in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

As many of you recall, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story went through a series of reshoots last summer. During the course of that time, many were concerned about the timing of these reshoots and script rewrites. Naturally, big budget blockbusters like Rogue One will go through reshoots just to work out any issues the film may have. In the long run, these reshoots helped the film, as it quickly became the third highest grossing film of 2016 in just a matter of a few short weeks.

Now the subject of these reshoots has popped up again, as many are wondering what scenes were reshot and what scenes were rewritten. Of course, now is the perfect time to ask about it considering that the film is practically behind us. Find out more about what Rogue One editors John Gilroy and Colin Goudie had to say about those scenes in the full story below.

Watch This Fan-Made Opening Crawl For ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’
Empress Eve   |  

Rogue One A Star Wars Story Poster Header Image

The recently released Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first of a series of live-action standalone features, not part of the Star Wars “Episodes.” Therefore, the filmmakers decided to leave out the usual opening crawl, an iconic part of all seven previous films, beginning with the original 1977 Star Wars (Episode IV: A New Hope).

Many fans feel an opening crawl is a necessity for a Star Wars film, and in the case of Rogue One, which tells the story of the team of Rebels who stole the plans for the Death Star that led to the events of A New Hope, it would have been helpful to show where this tale fits into the timeline. (Basically, it’s “Episode 3.5.)

Now, a fan has created an opening crawl for Rogue One using an online Star Wars “Intro Creator” tool. Watch the video for it here below.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story death troopers

To help promote the recently released Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a little prank was set up involving some Death Troopers and some customers at a Disney Store.

Nothing complicated about this one, folks. It’s simply some Death Trooper statues set up in a Disney store and the people who discover they are not really statues. Classic. Or a brand new twist on the Mannequin Challenge if you’re super young and don’t remember classic stuff! Either way, the best part is seeing the reactions and interactions involving some of the kids.

‘Rogue One’s Saw Gerrera To Appear In ‘Star Wars Rebels’

Forest Whitaker in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Eagle-eyed Star Wars Rebels fans were able to point out some of the cameos that were made in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. From The Ghost, the show’s flagship transporter, to Chopper, the crew’s droid with an attitude, it was fun to see that even the animated show characters get a little nod. Now it looks like one of them will be paying a visit to the animated show. Rumors started to swirl that Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) could appear in a sequel or another Star Wars film. It’s unlikely that Jyn would make an appearance unless the writers have something else up their sleeve, but one character that is confirmed to appear is one we’ve already seen in the Clone Wars animated series.

According to a trailer, Saw Gerrera will be back for an upcoming episode of Star Wars Rebels, and he will be voiced by none other than Forest Whitaker. Check out more on the story below.

‘Firefly’ Star Alan Tudyk Talks Playing K-2SO In ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’
The Movie God   |  

K-2SO In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The latest Star Wars movie, and the first spinoff from the numbered series, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story may not have had the same kind of opening weekend The Force Awakens had. As Disney expected. But The Force Awakens had the best domestic opening of all time and went on to become the new all-time domestic box office king, so that’s no great shock to anyone at all. But that’s not to say the movie had a bad opening. Quite the contrary. It scored a $155 million domestic opening—the second best for a Star Wars movie and the 12th best all-time—and nearly $135 million foreign for a $290 million worldwide total. Now we can only wait to see how high it will rise in the all-time rankings.

While we wait for that, here’s a short video well worth giving a watch. In it, Firefly star Alan Tudyk talks about playing the droid K-2SO in Rogue One. This includes figuring out the right voice to use, walking around on stilts, and more. You can check it out below.

Star Wars Rogue One X-Wings

Apparently plenty of you rebelled over the weekend as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was the number one film, grossing over $290 million worldwide. Many critics were overjoyed by Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars spinoff praising it for being new by mixing in the old — the new being focusing on the untold story of how the plans to the Death Star were stolen, the old being seeing digitized classic characters from the original trilogy. But the old also included some unused footage – that many of us didn’t even notice at the time – from the original 1977 film Star Wars: A New Hope. Check out the full story below. Minor spoilers follow. There’s your only warning.
