It looks like the guys at Making Star Wars have caught a fascinating little detail in the new behind the scenes making video from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The video, from ABC News, has Lucasfilm’s Landis Fields talking about how K2SO came to be on the big screen – there;s interesting bits in there about how parts of the droid were based on the Star Tours ride in Disneyland and Lucasfilm wanted to ensure it didn’t just look like a man in a suit.


However, more interestingly, it shows Firefly actor Alan Tudyk on set in his motion capture suit and at 00:44 into the video he can  be seen filming a scene that appears to show him dying and beside him it looks like Diego Luna’s Cassian character.

Now, we know there were extensive reboots for the movie but is this how they both died originally? It’s certainly interesting footage.

Have a look and let us know your thoughts but even if you’re not convinced, it’s well worth a look.

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….
