Disney is reportedly unhappy with the movie and have ordered a series of re-shoots scheduled for July.
An article by Esquire, has stated that the new Star Wars spin-off movie, Rogue One, has displeased the executives of Disney. As a result, expensive re-shoots have been scheduled for July. How Disney could be unhappy with an original spin-off story and happy with a scene for scene remake of Episode V: A New Hope, beats me.
In case you missed the continuation of the Star Wars franchise, don't bother making a fuss. Disney and JJ Abrams have hid behind a large mass of dick suckers and childrens opinions of the new film The Force Awakens. Seriously, I have been on record multiple times saying the new Star Wars movie blows. No amount of time or drugs will change my opinion on that shit bag of a movie. I am not here to spread hope across the Star Wars fanbase, but remorse and fear.
As stated earlier, multiple sources are reporting the troubles with Rogue One. At this point, no one knows why Disney executives were upset with what was supposed to be the end result of the movie. Honestly, I can't even guess why, maybe because they cast Forrest Whittaker. The problems don't stop at expensive and odd re-shoots. A lot of rumors have been circling about the ancillary details of Rogue One. Which are all very troubling because of the nature of the story surrounding the movie. It is different story, one I haven't seen on TV or in video games. It is actually something I was very excited about. Watch the trailer first.
As many people do, the trailer has been dissected and analyzed a million times over already. One thing that caught a lot of peoples eyes was the large tubular tank containing a blindingly white liquid. That is a bacta tank, a cross between a cryogenic tank and healing pod. People have been clamoring over who is inside the tank. A lot of people have come to believe that is Commander Snoke. The very disfigured mentor and leader of the first order in The Force Awakens.
That dude. But that theory was shot down recently by a tweet from someone who is apparently important to the Star Wars universe.
Another source has claimed that it Darth Vader who is inside the bacta tank. This is a problem for me because it seems like they are using a fresh story line from this franchise to clear up and explain some minor holes that reside within the franchise. Like the clear drop off of Vaders fighting skill between the prequel trilogy and the original.
I am not interested in a tie-in movie that just tries to explain away discrepancies in the story line. The first title in the original trilogy was released in 1977, the prequels first movie was released in 2000 (1999 for the sticklers). Obviously there are going to be discrepancies between the two trilogies, they were shot and made almost 25 years apart. In that time, film making, animation, fighting choreography and CGI have greatly improved in the movie industry. If there are people out there, loudly complaining about those type of differences between the movies, why listen to them? Those are the type of people who can't enjoy a movie or anything of the sort, unless it is totally based in reality. Fuck those people, these are movies, they are meant to take you outside of reality for a few hours.
If George Lucas, and the writing staff for Star Wars had it in planning that there would be a wave like trend when it came to Vaders fighting, then fine. That would be pretty cool honestly, but I think it's safe to assume that it is not true. They are just going back with hindsight and filling in the gaps. I didn't even really notice the difference and there are a multitude of reasons people could make up on the spot as to why lightsaber battling had fallen off so far. I don't want to get into them because I already have 5 lined up in my head.
All in all, Disney sucks and they are potentially ruining one of greatest cross platform stories ever.
