One of my initial reactions in Rogue One was the we hear in the end credits the very music that was in the end credits of Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope, and Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi.

I honestly thought the cameos were the worst part of the movie. 3PO and R2 felt shoehorned in just to say they've been in every movie. And Evazan/Ponda reeks of some corporate doofus watching Star Wars for the first time and ordering them in.

The only cameo I did not like were the ones for Walrus Man and Dr Evizan.  Evizan just didn't look right at all.  The flip side is that I loved seeing the Ghost and chopper as well as the General Syndulla page.

Check out this Hollywood Reporter article about how Tony Gilroy stepped in during the reshoots for ROGUE ONE - A Star Wars Story.  It paints a picture of a production that was in serious trouble, and how Gilroy's intervention radically reshaped the movie.  A lot of Gilroy's comments came from an interview he did on a podcast called The Moment with Brian Koppelman.  And his comments on ROGUE ONE are at the 46:00 minute mark.

An interesting side note?  Back in 2016, actor Ben Mendelsohn stated that there's a radically different version of ROGUE ONE that exists, and that it was Gareth Edwards original director's cut.

Release the Edwards cut!  ;)

Very frank from Gilroy... if his contributions were primarily to the characters/arcs, he absolutely missed the boat on Jyn. The first hour of that movie is the most clumsy in all of SW. The story keeps underlining the same beat, over and over, until the last 45 minutes... which might be the best in SW. Very curious to know more.

If you haven't seen it before, this is a pretty good summary of a lot of stuff that was filmed/changed/cut:  Everything Cut from Rogue One

Lot of stuff in there about the possible alternate endings, some of which were filmed and screened for LFL folks.

Thanks!

I've seen most of that before, but good refresher. I'm really interested to know what the initial cut/script looked like, considering Gilroy's severe assessment of it.
