(Welcome to The Movies That Made Star Wars, a series where we explore the films that inspired George Lucas’ iconic universe. In this edition: Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece Psycho.)

Alfred Hitchcock was a master of suspense and one of the masterpieces of his oeuvre was the 1960 film Psycho, starring Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh. From the beginning, it tells the story of a woman named Marion Crane as played by Janet Leigh. She’s stolen a sum of money from her boss and finds herself on the run. She checks into an out of the way hotel in Arizona and meets a man named Norman Bates. This is the last man she’d ever meet. She’s murdered by Norman’s mother and then the story shifts almost completely to Norman’s perspective. Will he be able to help his mother get away with the murder?

It doesn’t sound like the sort of film that would have had a meaningful impact on Star Wars, but you’d be surprised where George Lucas and the teams making Star Wars films could draw influence and put it to good use.

rogue one reshoots

When Oscar-winning screenwriter Tony Gilroy joined the production of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story late into Rogue One reshoots, a few eyebrows were raised. Rumors were already swirling that Disney was unhappy with the first cut of the standalone Star Wars film, and that as much as 40% of the film needed to be completely redone. And reports of Gilroy’s big paycheck didn’t help alleviate fears that Rogue One was going to be a total bust.

Rogue One ended up being a big box office and critical success. But it was suggested that much of that success was because of Gilroy’s last-minute efforts to salvage the film. We weren’t sure exactly how much of a role Gilroy played in the Rogue One reshoots — until now.
