Gareth Edwards Reveals Original Ending for 'Rogue One'

Ever since hitting theaters, Rogue One has been a roaring success. If you haven't seen Rogue One yet turn back now. Spoilers are ahead. — The ending that we all saw in theaters was basically a suicide mission. Explaining why none of these unique characters ever appear in other films. It was a gutsy move to see all the characters die. Rogue One is a prequel to A New Hope. So the ending makes sense. Although this ending wasn't always planned.

Rogue One

It only took about 40 years but “wars” in the Star Wars title has finally been justified. Rogue One, the latest entry in the Star Wars franchise, directed by Godzilla’s Gareth Edwards, slots into the period leading up to Episode IV, A New Hope. A lot of people died to get us these plans, is the line I remember in reference to the Empire’s dreaded Death Star schematics and Edwards breathes life into what is almost a throwaway screw in the early Star Wars lore with this riveting adventure romp.

review

Rogue One: Star Wars Strikes Back!

Back in 1978 I saw a film which was sweeping the earth called Star Wars. It is the first film I can remember seeing in the cinema and my overwhelming memory is the length of the queue. It spilled out of the door, into the street and around the corner. Of course, years later it is obvious that the building is not actually that big and I doubt the wait was that long. The point is the impact this film had on me. It was very much a formative film for me and in many respects it was the birth of my lifelong love of movies.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) Review

We've seen this before, but that isn't what stood out while watching Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Here we have a competent tale of a rebellion taking on an Empire, only on this occasion the events on screen don't really inspire the hope that it wants to. When Rogue One came to an end, I couldn't help but feel a little hollow, as my hopes for a more unique direction were shattered by a sub-par, by-the-books product.

After an Impressive 'Rogue One' What's Next for 'Star Wars Stories'?

After an Impressive 'Rogue One' What's Next for 'Star Wars Stories'?

*This article may contain Spoilers to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story* — Yesterday Rogue One: A Star Wars Story premiered. The highly-anticipated film lived up to the hype in my opinion. From the earth-shattering CGI to the brilliant characters, Rogue One was a unique experiment. Taking the sacred Star Wars franchise and flipping it on its head. Although Rogue One distanced itself from the majority of Star Wars films, it still had nods to the original story and filmmaking. The backstory was deep and intelligent. The film also introduced a flurry of characters. I'm sure months from now will be reading books and comics about the adventures of Captain Cassian Andor and K-2SO, the survival of Jynn Erso, the heartbreak of Galen Erso, and the teachings and times of the force sensitive, Chirrut Îmwe. As much as Rogue One was daring it left some question marks.
