Felicity Jones in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The Star Wars universe will be venturing into a new galaxy this year as they will be releasing their first spinoff film. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will center on a group of Rebel fighters attempting to steal the plans to the Death Star. A true prequel that takes place before A New Hope. But the exciting part of the film is that it will focus on those who don’t have Jedi powers and have a ground war feel to it. But troubles behind-the-scenes have put the film in a very awkward position. Partially because Star Wars: The Force Awakens was such a massive hit, there are expectations that Disney should be able to follow up that same success for every new film released. And with the summer-long reshoots that took place and the addition of new creative forces, it seems like Rogue One could fall short of the expectations that The Force Awakens established last year.

And that’s what Disney CEO Bob Iger is not afraid to admit, but he is also remains optimistic that it could do very well based on the reactions to the marketing campaign. Check out what he had to say below.

Darth Vader, Star Wars Rebels

The rumor that Darth Vader would be appearing in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story seemed to have gone under the radar with the reports of 40% of the film being reshot circling it. At the time it was a rumor that made plenty of sense considering how the standalone film centers on a group of rebels who go on a dangerous mission to steal the plans to the Death Star. So far we’ve only seen one teaser trailer that just set the tone, but no Darth Vader in sight. While we can expect to see more footage during Star Wars Celebration, it’s not clear if the Sith Lord will appear in it. But for those who are just anxiously waiting for an answer, you can take a huge sigh of relief.

It’s been confirmed that Darth Vader will be in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and there may be more to his character than what has been rumored. Hit the jump for the full story.

There was a growing concern that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was going to be in major trouble, when news broke that the film was entering reshoots and that 40% of the film would be reshot. The rumor was that Disney execs weren’t too pleased with the first cut of the film. According to those reports, there were issues with its tone and some said it looked more like a war movie than a Star Wars one – despite the film repeatedly being pitched as a ground-war film by director Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.

Now there is some truth to those rumors. Word is that the film is bringing in screenwriter Tony Gilroy to help polish the script and they are also hiring a new stunt coordinator.

More on the story below.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Reshoots are just a common part of the big budget filmmaking process so when word got around that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story would be going in for some reshoots, there was no reason to be worried. But as we started to learn more about the kind of troubles that plagued the film, it started to look like there needed to be some concern. According to those reports, Disney was unhappy with the first cut of the film and felt that it tonally off with what a “classic” Star Wars movie should feel like. A source said that it was the closest thing to a prequel that we will ever get, but that it was too much like a war movie.

Now it appears that these reshoots are becoming a serious issue as they are now bringing in Christopher McQuarrie to get involved in the production of the film. McQuarrie had previously done a couple of rewrites to fix some of the issues. More on the story below.

Yesterday it was reported that Disney executives were unhappy with a test screening of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and had ordered expensive reshoots. No first cut is perfect, and even then sometimes reshoots are necessary. In fact, they happen often in the industry.

But now we are getting a better picture of why Disney ordered reshoots. But their reasoning may surprise you. According to a new report, the studio doesn’t see this as a disaster. But will use the reshoots as an opportunity to fix the tone. More on the story below.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Now that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War have been released and made their respective impacts, the next highly-anticipated big screen blockbuster event of 2016 is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The first in a series of and prequels and spin-offs featuring characters and events integral to the evolution of the Star Wars universe, Rogue One tells the tale of the group of brave Rebellion soldiers who stole the plans to the Death Star that set in motion the narrative of Episode IV: A New Hope.

The first trailer premiered almost two months ago to an enthusiastic worldwide response. Executives at Disney are counting on Rogue One to bring in global box office grosses equal to or greater than those of last December’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but according to a recent article by Page One’s Emily Smith, those same execs are less than thrilled with director Gareth Edwards after viewing his first cut of the film.

Mads Mikkelsen will star in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Well based on the headline, we should consider the following tidbit about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story a possible spoiler for a couple of reasons. Maybe Mads Mikkelsen doesn’t understand the concept of spoiler or maybe he is just messing with everyone with a joke. Whatever the case, it is exciting to have the Hannibal actor on board for the film. But we still don’t know much about his role besides the rumors that have been floating around the internet.

While it has yet to be confirmed, the actor has revealed that his character has a family connection to one of the members of the Rebel team that will steal the plans to the Death Star. More on the story below.
