Star Wars Rogue One Teaser Trailer is up!

186 posts in this topic

I'm not really concerned. Reshoots aren't uncommon, so...

If they kick it out of Christmas, then that'll be a sign.

^
Kind of what I was thinking, and "Disney is unhappy" is a little vague.  It could mean they were only unhappy with certain minor details of the (as-yet-unfinished) movie, hence the reshoots.   And any reshoots on a Star Wars film would probably be characterized as 'expensive.'   Me thinks the article sounds like click-bait hype.

Yeah.

 

As simple as, "I'm confused. How did this character suddenly get to point B? Fix it."

Not at all worried.

A completely different spin on the same story:

Also, if you want to really believe the rumors, here's one from everyone's fave UK gutter rag:

Eat. Or eat not. There is no try.

Food is the path to the dark side...

Haha, Hamill said that concoction smelt so gross, his upturned nose in that scene was real!

Sorry folks - you know Vie and Bland can't resist a pun or two. My apologies to everyone who was hoping to read this and find discussion of a depressing rumor.

May the ten course meal be with you.

Apparently the reason for the Rogue One reshoots was to inject a bit more humor:
 

More details revealed about the Rogue One reshoots/io9.gizmodo.com

 

Not sure how this makes me feel... On the one hand, I was looking forward to seeing the "Wars" in Star Wars - I was expecting a darker tone, at least something akin to Edwards' own Godzilla (which wasn't so dark kids couldn't watch it). 

On the other hand, SW does have a lot of humor in it - and this is supposed to lead into ANH. But I suppose the House of Mouse was never going to put out a film illustrating the travails of war, even in a SW context. 

Another rumor of interest:

http://epicstream.com/news/Darth-Vaders-Scenes-in-Rogue-One-A-Star-Wars-Story-Described-As-Brutal

I imagine Disney might want to calm aspects like that down, although I like the idea of seeing Vader as avenging dark angel on the battlefield.

The problem with GE's own Godzilla (and Monsters too, to a certain extent) was that the characters were a bit grim and serious. The cardboard cutout son in Godzilla could've used a few moments of levity to endear him to the audience a bit more, so if these reshoots add those to make the R1 cast of characters that bit more appealing, then good.

The cardboard cutout son in Godzilla could've used a few moments of levity to endear him to the audience a bit more, so if these reshoots add those to make the R1 cast of characters that bit more appealing, then good. 

I loved Edwards' Godzilla for the spectacle and for Bryan Cranston (the only real human being in the show), but the son and wife felt criminally underdeveloped.   I'm convinced that they were hired because they nailed the 'staring agape' thing (both actors were better as brother/sister in "Age of Ultron").  When Cranston left the movie, the human heartbeat of the movie stopped.

That said?  I enjoyed 2014 Godzilla because the G-porn was never better.   The scale and the spectacle were amazing (even if it was a bit too grim for kids; in that way, it felt closer to the original, uncensored 1954 Japanese movie).  I hate to sound so shallow, but as a lifelong Godzilla fan the human scenes were often secondary to the monster stuff anyway (with few exceptions); that's just the nature of these movies, I'm afraid.

But Star Wars is different; the characters are every bit as important as the spectacle.   Star Wars without that solid core of characters is just an FX demo reel.  It's no surprise that Sir Alec Guinness was nominated for a supporting Oscar.  

Maybe Edwards' preview for Disney revealed that lack (?).   If that's the case, then I agree that the reshoots might actually be a good thing.

ROGUE ONE Update: No Test Screenings; Apparently The Re-Shoots Involve A "Very Important Character" Cameo
 
It seems the earlier Rogue One: A Star Wars Story re-shoots rumor been at least partially confirmed - but there were no test screenings that sent Disney into a panic.

Sure, don't get me wrong - there was a lot to like about Edwards' Godzilla, but human characters wasn't really one of them. (And that's not really why you go see a big G movie.) For atmosphere and mood though, the guy knows what he's doing.

I've read a lot of differing reports and opinions about this on the Internet today, but they all essentially boils down to the same thing - LF and Disney are making refinements, tweaks, this is not a substantial structural rejig. Until it's unequivocally stated otherwise, I'll take that as a good thing.

Is Disney Reshooting As Much As 50% Of ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY?
 
Despite an EW report attempting to do some damage control over the weekend, it really does sound as if Rogue One is in serious trouble. In fact, those reshoots may even have a new director!.

Now you'll have fans all clamoring for the 'rejected' version that Disney didn't want; like Paul Schrader's version of "Exorcist 4", which was arguably superior (though slower paced) than the Renny Harlin version.   I'm genuinely curious to see how this plays out.   Though I wonder if Edwards will be trusted with a big budget franchise movie again (?)

If it's true.

But yeah, I heard they were introducing many elements to "lighten the tone."

The trailer looked very promising, even if it is a look backward instead of forward.  But since this is a 'sideways' prequel (of an untold story), it's not as annoying.
