Star Wars Rogue One: The end of the movie had to be very different

Cinema 21 December, 2016

Star Wars Snape had a very different end to the base. And then finally Disney and Lucasfilm changed everything.

The subject had been slightly touched when we wondered if a result was possible for Star Wars Rogue One , but it seems clear that the end of the film was changed. The conclusion of Rogue One seemed very dark, especially for a movie of Disney Studios, which are generally very attached to films not too bloody and more “family-friendly” conclusions. So when you get out of Rogue One, you’re bound to wonder what happened. Especially since the first trailer for Rogue One has so many scenes that are not in the final version of the film that the scenario has necessarily experienced quite drastic changes.

A much less dark end
“We assumed they would not let us. […] So I try to find a fun where it did not happen. And then everyone read and there was that feeling of “They must die no?” And everyone was saying “Yeah, can we?”. We thought we would not have the right but Kathy and the people at Disney said, “Yeah, it makes sense since they’re not in New Hope.” I kept waiting until Someone tells me “You know what? Can not we do an extra scene where we see Jyn and Cassian, they’re okay and on another planet? “And it never happened.” Explained Gareth Edwards on the subject. Inevitably, one suspects that there is a little more to this story than what the director wants to say but it should remain a secret of production. In any case, Snape One was a very different Star Wars other.
