Reason for ROGUE ONE Reshoots

With Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hitting cinemas in December, the film is currently undergoing some reshoots.

Whilst reshoots can often be an indication of some serious problems for a film, it’s believed that the main reason for the Rogue One reshoots is because of the cameo of a certain familiar/new face. Yes, we’re talking about Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo.

Sources from both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety are saying that the reshoots are mainly done to incorporate Ehrenreich’s Solo, whilst it’s also believed that the new stuff is going to be adding a bit more fun to the largely serious tone of the film. Additionally, new information is claiming that the film will end literally “10 minutes” before the events of the 1977 original Star Wars.

Set between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars (or A New Hope for you younger sorts), the plot of Rogue One focusses on a group of Rebels on a mission to snatch the plans for the Death Star. Sounds a little familiar, right?

As well as a cameo from Ehrenreich’s Han Solo, the film will star Felicity Jones, Ben Mendelsohn, Diego Luna, Mads Mikkelsen, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker and Riz Ahmed. Also, it’s believed that the film will see an appearance from none other than Darth Vader.

At present, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set for a December 16th UK release.
