Rogue One: A Star Wars Story also stars Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker and Diego Luna. It has been confirmed that the film will end 10 minutes before the original 1977 movie Star Wars: A New Hope begins.
However, it has also been revealed that Rogue One will be the first Star Wars film not to feature the franchise’s iconic “opening crawl”.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first in Disney’s planned “Anthology Series” of spin-off films. The series will continue with the currently untitled Han Solo prequel movie due in 2018.
It was announced in July that rising star Alden Ehrenreich has been cast as a younger version of the character made famous by Harrison Ford. A third Anthology Series film will follow in 2020, Disney has since confirmed.
In May, it was reported that Disney had ordered weeks of costly reshoots on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “the goal of the reshoots will be to lighten the mood” as right now Rogue One has the “feel of a war movie”.
