Rogue One Reshoots

Over the summer, one of the big topics of conversation for Star Wars fans were the reshoots for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. An initial report indicated that Rogue One reshoots needed to be completed after Disney was unhappy with the first cut of the film, and a follow-up said that as much as 40% of the film was going to be completely redone. The urgent nature of the reshoots was debunked shortly thereafter, but it was a story that felt more like damage control by Lucasfilm than giving us the whole picture.

Now we seem to have some further indication that the extensive and expensive reshoots that were originally reported were just as drastic as originally thought. You might remember that Michael Clayton writer and director Tony Gilroy was brought in to help on the reshoots by writing some additional material (after working on the script the previous summer) and working as second unit director. But his role on the movie was reportedly far more involved, including fixing the ending of the movie.

We’ve already begun to learn about the success of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Fandango sold hundreds of thousands of tickets in the first few minutes, and last week box office tracking services estimated the opening weekend box office could hit the high $120 million range to the near $150 million range. But no matter how successful this movie is, don’t expect a Rogue One sequel.

Rogue One IMAX Poster

Sadly, nowadays when a movie hits the IMAX screen, it’s usually also in 3D by default. Very rarely are there IMAX screens showing a movie in 2D. However, in the case of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, there will be a very small amount of theaters not only showing the movie in IMAX 2D, but with a 70mm projection as well.

Michael Giacchino had a tough job to do on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The composer behind UpLostStar Trek, and Doctor Strange only had four and a half weeks to write the score for director Gareth Edwards‘ upcoming war film. Giachinno replaced Academy Award-winning composer Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel) back in September, meaning there was no time to waste.

Below, Michael Giacchino discusses what to expect from his Rogue One music.

Rogue One Opening Crawl

UPDATE: In a recent interview, Kathleen Kennedy confirmed to Variety that Rogue One won’t have an opening crawl, saying, “We felt that’s so indicative of what those saga films are. Initially, we probably will begin the film in a way that is traditional, with just the title.”

So will we get the traditional Star Wars logo floating back into space accompanied by the iconic John Williams theme and followed by the Rogue One title? Or will the initial title say Rogue One: A Star Wars Story? This will likely be something we won’t find out until the movie debuts next month. Our original story from July 18, 2016 follows below.

There’s been plenty of buzz about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story over the past month. Plenty of new details and photos were revealed in a big Entertainment Weekly spread (including confirmation of Darth Vader’s return), such as the reveal of Forest Whitaker starring in the film as a character borrowed from the Clone Wars animated series, clarification on the reshoots that were taking place this summer, and much more. Plus, this past weekend brought a stunning new teaser poster and a revealing sizzle reel showing tons of behind the scenes footage. You can find out much more in our recap of the panel previewing the film.

Now with Star Wars Celebration over, we have one more update from the convention this past weekend, and it’s something that is likely to rile up some fans. Despite the fact that Kathleen Kennedy was previously unsure if Rogue One: A Star Wars Story would have an opening crawl like the rest of the films in the Star Wars saga, she seemed to have a slightly more definitive answer at Star Wars Celebration.

Rogue One Featurette

However, I will say that if you have seen all the footage you want from the movie, then I would avoid this featurette for the time being. Otherwise, watch the new Rogue One featurette after the jump.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story tells the untold story of the heist for the plans that eventually led to the takedown of the Death Star in Star Wars: A New Hope. And while the story seems pretty straightforward, a group of ragtag rebels who must come together under tremendous odds, director Gareth Edwards says that “the film doesn’t unfold how you think.” Hit the jump for more on the Rogue One ending, alongside a new photo from the movie.
