'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' Latest News & Updates: Why Was There A Massive Reshoot?
The next major film in the Star Wars world is "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story". It is set to be in theaters this coming December 16 and fans are clearly excited about it. "Rogue One" is the first film in the new Anthology Series that Lucasfilm are starting. The story takes place before "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
In the first few updates, we saw Darth Vader reappearance being the evil Sith Lord that he is. The main hurdle of the rebels in the "Rogue One" is the destruction of the Death Star. This is already a clear indication that our favorite Sith Lord will have a big role in the movie.
According to sources though, Disney actually ordered major reshoots for the film. This came about after the poor reviews of their studio executives. Fans should not be worried though because reshoots like this are already included in the planning.
The"Rogue One" cast Felicity Jones says that this is a normal occurrence for films and they all welcome it. Sometimes during screenings, the team and even the cast end up thinking that they could probably do a better job, she added. It would only be the first draft. Co-star Mads Mikklesen also added that this was no big deal for them.
The "Rogue One" will also have new additions like C2-B5, the new robot in the supporting cast who is working for the empire. The storm troopers will also be sporting a new look since they will be introducing us to the Death troopers and the Shore Troopers.
Rumors have also mentioned that the "Rogue One" will see the return of Grand Moff Tarkin. Aside from a very brief glimpse in the trailer, fans also deduced that since the Death Star was created during his time on "A New Hope", it would only make sense for him to be in "Rogue One" during the construction of the evil killing machine.
Until the movie airs though, we will all have to assume that all the news are mere speculations. "Rogue One" will run for about two hours and 13 minutes much to the delight of some fans, so they will definitely have time to check all the theories that were mentioned.
