Rogue One editors talk reshoots

January 5th, 2017 by Marc Comments



Rogue One editors John Gilroy and Colin Goudie have been describing some of the processes used to put together the recent Star Wars standalone film.

Along with a third editor, Jabez Olssen, the two men revealed that the well discussed reshoots involved helping introduce our main characters better.

The scene with Cassian’s introduction with the spy, Bodhi traipsing through Jedha on his way to see Saw, these are things that were added,” said Gilroy.

Also Jyn, how we set her up and her escape from the transporter, that was all done to set up the story better.”

With regard the final third of the film which is action heavy, Gilroy said: We moved some of the things that our heroes did, they were different in the original then they were as it was conceived… It was really like a very tight puzzle and we had to keep honing that and honing that, and I’m very proud of what we did there.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
