One of the most thrilling moments in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is when you realize the ending of the movie is leading right up to the opening of Star Wars: A New Hope. There was something very exciting about seeing the moments that led to the chase that opened the movie which started it all, helped immensely by that added Darth Vader sequence.
The only problem with the Rogue One ending is that the credits roll, and if you felt the urge to watch A New Hope immediately, you had to wait until you got home. But now you can experience the seamless transition between the ending of Rogue One and the beginning of A New Hope thanks to an easy but inevitable mash-up of the two movies.
Watch the Rogue One ending lead into the opening of A New Hope below. Read More »

Total Recall screenwriter Gary L. Goldman has accused The Walt Disney Company of ripping off the story of Zootopia from a treatment that Goldman had pitched to Disney executives in 2000 and 2009, right down to the character designs, theme, plot and title, according to the complaint filed by Goldman’s Esplanade Productions.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story dropped back in December, but the curtain is still slowly being pulled back and revealing more details about exactly how this particular space oddity came to be.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first Star Wars film that doesn’t contain a single Jedi character – but that almost wasn’t the case. In a new interview, the filmmakers have revealed that in one of the early drafts of the script, Jyn Erso’s mother, Lyra (played by Valene Kane), was originally meant to be a Jedi knight who wielded a lightsaber in a fight against Ben Mendelsohn’s Orson Krennic in the movie’s prologue.

It’s no secret that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story went through some dramatic changes during the development process. The movie that ended up in theaters is drastically different from the one that executive producer and visual effects supervisor John Knoll originally pitched, and it even has significant changes that were made from the first draft of the script by Gary Whitta.
One of the more closely examined aspects of these changes has been the ending of the movie, mostly because we’ve seen footage from a very different climax of Rogue One. We recently took a look at the three different endings that we know of, and now we have more details on the role of a character who originally saw more action in one of these alternate endings.
Alan Tudyk did the motion capture performance and voice for the reprogrammed Imperial droid K-2SO, and since he was actually on set to fulfill his part in the film, he provided some details on K-2SO’s original Rogue One ending. Read More »
