Rogue one – The star wars story

Star Wars

Roque One

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is an upcoming American epic space opera film directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Chris Weitz, Tony Gilroy, and Gary Whitta, from a story idea by visual effects supervisor John Knoll.[1] It will be the first stand-alone Star Wars Anthologyfilm. Set in the Star Wars universe some time after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sithand shortly before the events of the original Star Wars, the story will center on a group of Rebel spies on a mission to steal the plans for the Galactic Empire‘s new weapon, the Death Star. It will star Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Jiang Wenand Forest Whitaker.

The film is produced by Lucasfilm and will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Principal photography began at Elstree Studios, near London during early August 2015. After a rough cut of the film failed to impress the Disney executives, the film went back for lengthy reshoots in the summer of 2016. This saw veteran filmmaker Tony Gilroy joining the project.

Rogue One will be released on December 15, 2016 in the UK before preview screenings in the US start that night before going nationwide on December 16, 2016.

Premise

After the formation of the Galactic Empire, the Rebel Alliance recruits Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) to work with Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and a team to steal the Death Star plans.[2]

Cast

  • Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso:[3] Putting behind a checkered past by lending her skills to a greater cause, Jyn is impetuous, defiant, and eager to bring the battle to the Empire. Used to operating alone, she finds higher purpose by taking on a desperate mission for the Rebel Alliance.[4] In preparation for her role, Jones made a scrapbook of “pictures that I see that remind me of the person I’m playing, little bits of writing” which she often does for her different roles in films, although she couldn’t find any true inspiration—in pictures or writing—for Jyn. She spent hours watching music videos, particularly those of Florence + the Machine and compares the lead singer Florence Welch to Jyn as “an ethereal figure who floats and contorts on the stage” much like Jyn.[5]
  • Diego Luna as Cassian Andor: An accomplished Rebel Alliance Intelligence Officer,[6][7] with combat field experience, Captain Andor commands respect from his Rebel troops with his ability to keep a cool head under fire and complete his missions with minimal resources.[8]
  • Ben Mendelsohn as Orson Krennic: The Director of Advanced Weapons Research for the Imperial Military,[6][9][10] who is obsessed with the completion of the long-delayed Death Starproject. A cruel but brilliant man, Krennic has staked his reputation on the delivery of the functional battle station to the Emperor.[11]
  • Donnie Yen as Chirrut Îmwe: A deeply spiritual warrior,[6][10] Chirrut believes all living things are connected through the Force. His sightless eyes do not prevent him from being a highly skilled fighter. Though he lacks Force abilities, Îmwe has rigorously honed his body through intense physical and mental discipline.[12]
  • Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso: Jyn’s distant father,[10][13][14] who sent the Rebels a transmission about the testing of the Death Star.[15]
  • Alan Tudyk as K-2SO, a Rebel-owned Imperial enforcer droid whose memory is wiped by Andor.[6][16][17][18]
  • Jiang Wen as Baze Malbus: A freelance assassin[6][10] who, with the harsh reality of his Imperial-occupied home world, has hardened into a pragmatic soldier and a crack shot with his heavy repeater cannon. Baze has a bravado that provides a marked contrast to the spiritual centeredness of his best friend and moral compass, Chirrut.[19]
  • Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera: A veteran of the Clone Wars.[10]The character previously appeared in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars[6][20] and was mentioned in the Star Wars Rebels episode “The Honorable Ones” and the novel Star Wars: Bloodline.

Additionally, Riz Ahmed plays Bodhi Rook, a former Imperial pilot with strong piloting and technical skills now working with Rebel squad,[21][22] and Jonathan Aris plays Senator Jebel.[23] Genevieve O’Reilly and Jimmy Smits will reprise their roles from previous films as Mon Mothma and Bail Organa, respectively.[24][25] James Earl Joneswill also reprise his role as the voice of Darth Vader,[26] while Vader is reportedly physically played by a “variety of large framed performers”,[27] including Spencer Wilding.[28] Valene Kane will play the role of Jyn Erso’s mother, Lyra Erso.[29] Nick Kellington appears as Bistan, an alien creature and member of the Rebel Alliance, nicknamed “Space Monkey”.[30] Alistair Petrie as General Draven.[7]Eunice Olumide,[31] and Warwick Davis have been cast in unspecified roles.[32] Several Scandinavian newspapers are reporting that Swedish actor Fares Fares has been cast in an unnamed role.[33][34] Rian Johnson and Ram Bergman, director and producer of Star Wars: Episode VIII, respectively, cameo as two Death Star technicians.[35]

Production

Development

In February 2013, The Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger confirmed the development of two stand-alone films, each individually written by Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg.[36] On February 6, Entertainment Weekly reported that Lucasfilm is working on two films featuring Han Solo and Boba Fett.[37] Disney CFO Jay Rasulo has described the stand-alone films as origin stories.[38] Kathleen Kennedyexplained that the stand-alone films will not crossover with the films of the sequel trilogy, stating:

George [Lucas] was so clear as to how that works. The canon that he created was the Star Wars saga. Right now, Episode VII falls within that canon. The spin-off movies, or we may come up with some other way to call those films, they exist within that vast universe that he created. There is no attempt being made to carry characters (from the stand-alone films) in and out of the saga episodes. Consequently, from the creative standpoint, it’s a roadmap that George made pretty clear.[39]

John Knoll, visual effects supervisor for the prequel trilogy, pitched the idea for the film 10 years before the film’s development; after the Disney acquisition he felt as if he had to pitch it again or forever wonder “what might’ve happened if I had.”[40] In May 2014, it was announced that Gareth Edwards would direct the first stand-alone feature, to be released on December 16, 2016, with Gary Whittawriting the film.[41] In October 2014, cinematographer Greig Fraserrevealed that he would be working on the film and the film had a working title.[42] In January 2015, it was revealed that Whitta had completed his work on the film and would no longer be with the project.[43] Kinberg was considered as a replacement.[44] Later in the month, it was announced that Chris Weitz had signed to write the script for the film.[45] In March 2015, the title of the film was revealed to be Rogue One.[46] Also in the month, Alexandre Desplat stated that he would compose the music for the film.[47]

In April 2015, at Star Wars Celebration, it was revealed that the stand-alone films would be released under the umbrella of Star Wars Anthology. It was also confirmed that Rogue One takes place between Episodes III and IV, being closer to IV in the timeline.[2] At Disney’s biannual D23 Expo in August 2015, it was announced that the film’s title was amended to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.[48] In July 2016, discussing if the film would feature an opening crawl, Kennedy said, “we’re in the midst of talking about it, but I don’t think these [Anthology] films will have an opening crawl.” Edwards added, “The idea is this film is supposed to be different than the saga films… [however,] this film is born out of a crawl. The thing that inspired this movie was a crawl and what was written in that. There’s this feeling that if we did a crawl, then it’ll create another movie. And so the honest answer is you’ll have to wait and see.”[49] That same month, at the 2016 Star WarsCelebration, when asked about the title’s meaning, director Gareth Edwards gave three different meanings: “a military sign”, referring to the Red Squadron from A New Hope; “the ‘rogue’ one” of the franchise, given that it’s the first film to not be part of the main saga; and a description of Jyn Erso’s personality.[50]

Edwards stated that the style of the film will be similar to that of a war film, stating, “It’s the reality of war. Good guys are bad. Bad guys are good. It’s complicated, layered; a very rich scenario in which to set a movie.”[51][52]

Casting

 

The cast of Rogue One

In January 2015, The Hollywood Reporter stated that numerous actresses, including Tatiana Maslany, Rooney Mara and Felicity Jones, were being tested for the film’s lead.[53] Mara’s sister Kate also screentested for the role.[54] In February 2015, it was announced that Jones was in final talks to star in the film, while Aaron Paul and Édgar Ramírez were also being eyed for the male lead role.[55] In March 2015, Jones was announced as a part of the cast.[46] In March 2015, Deadline.comreported a rumor that Ben Mendelsohn was being considered for the lead role.[56] The next month, TheWrap reported that Sam Claflin was being eyed for a role, while Riz Ahmed was in negotiations to join the film.[57] In May, Mendelsohn, Ahmed, and Diego Luna were added to the cast of the film to play the lead roles.[58] Forest Whitaker was added to the cast of the film in June 2015.[59] In July 2015, Jonathan Aris was cast to play Senator Jebel in the film.[60] In February 2016, model Eunice Olumide revealed she had a part in the film.[31]Genevieve O’Reilly was cast as Mon Mothma, reprising her role from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.[24] James Earl Jones was confirmed to return as the voice of Darth Vader in June 2016.[61]

Filming

Principal photography on the film began at Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire on August 8, 2015.[62][63][64] The film was shot using Ultra Panavision 70 lenses with Arri Alexa 65 cameras.[65]

A number of filming locations were used around the world, including Laamu Atoll in the Maldives,[66] as well as Iceland and Jordan.[67]Following the release of the first trailer, Star Wars fans using Twittercommented that the London Underground station Canary Wharfhad apparently been used for one scene.[68][69] It was later confirmed that Gareth Edwards had selected Canary Wharf tube station as a location for a chase scene in an Imperial base; the location shoot took place between midnight and 4am, when the station was closed to the public.[70]

Post-production

On February 11, 2016, Disney executives stated that the film was “virtually completed”.[71]Several weeks of pre-scheduled reshoots began in mid-June 2016.[72] In August 2016, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Tony Gilroy had spearheaded the reshoots, in lieu of Edwards, and that Gilroy would have just as much say in the final cut of the film as Edwards. Gilroy was initially brought on in order to retool the ending of the film, which was not coming together as hoped, under Edwards’ direction. During the development of Edwards’ 2014 Godzilla reboot, Gilroy was commissioned to do extensive re-writes on the script. He was also present on set during filming of crucial scenes.[73]

Music

In March 2015, it was reported that Alexandre Desplat would compose the score for Rogue One.[74] Despite rumors that a contract had not been initially set in place by Lucasfilm, Desplat confirmed in an April 2016 interview that he would serve as composer for the film.[75]Concerning the film, Desplat commented that “[Edwards and I] had a great partnership on Godzilla, and I can’t wait to be starting with him. It will be in a few weeks from now, and it is very exciting and frightening at the same time because it’s such a legendary project. To be called to come after John Williams… it’s a great challenge for me.”[75] However, in September 2016, it was announced that Michael Giacchino would be replacing Desplat as composer, after the film’s reshoots altered the post-production schedule leaving Desplat no longer available.[76]

Marketing

Promotion of Rogue One was initially delayed due to the release of the film Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation in July 2015. Paramount Pictures registered and cleared the title with the Motion Picture Association of America in January 2015, well before Disney announced the title of its forthcoming Star Wars spinoff. Due to the similarities between the titles of Rogue One and Rogue Nation, Disney and Lucasfilm had to reach an agreement with Paramount over promotion in order to avoid any confusion in the public mind. Disney agreed to an embargo promotion on Rogue One until after mid-2015, with the exception of a very short teaser which was screened at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim that year.[77]

A teaser trailer for Rogue One released by Lucasfilm on April 7, 2016, was praised by reviewers for its portrayal of strong female characters. The Daily Telegraph described Jyn Erso’s character as “a roguish, Han Solo-style heroine”, calling the film “progressive” while noting its painstaking faithfulness to the production design style of the original Star Wars trilogy.[78] The Hollywood Reporter also noted the visual nods to the original trilogy and examined the film’s possible narrative direction, considering that the outcome is to some extent already revealed in the opening crawl of A New Hope.[79] The Atlantic writer David Sims stated that the trailer brought “back some memorable pieces of architecture, from the lumbering AT-AT walkers to the Death Star itself, not to mention the glorious 70s costuming of Star Wars.” He added that the trailer has “the look”, blending the old with the new.[80]The trailer was viewed close to 30 million times in its first 29 hours at a rate of 800,000 views per hour from Facebook and YouTube, which is 200,000 views shy of what the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was receiving in November 2014.[81]

In June 2016, Rogue One was promoted at the Star Wars Celebration Europe III event in London. During the event, a new official poster was unveiled, which depicts a battle taking place on the tropical planet Scarif and the Death Star looming large in a blue sky, above which is printed the tagline “A Rebellion Built on Hope”. A second teaser trailer was also unveiled, screened exclusively for the Celebration audience and not streamed online. This new trailer was reviewed favorably by critics; The Daily Telegraph noted that the trailer revealed new locations such as the planets Jedha and Scarif, and that its most significant revelation came in the final seconds of the teaser with the appearance of Darth Vader, reflected in a computer screen and accompanied by the classic breathing sound effect.[70] Variety also hailed the Vader reveal, and noted that the emphasis of the production was much more on the kinetic depiction of large battle sequences and full-on warfare, comparing it to Francis Ford Coppola‘s 1979 Vietnam War epic Apocalypse Now. A showreel was also shown during the event, which featured footage from the film cut with behind-the-scenes shots and interviews with the director and cast members.[82] The second trailer was shown publicly during a broadcast of the 2016 Summer Olympics and received favourable media reviews; Wiredstated that the trailer was “littered with nostalgic throwbacks to the original trilogy”, while Rolling Stone described the CGI landscape shots seen in the footage as “eye-poppingly gorgeous”.[83][84]

A further trailer released in October 2016 prompted the Hollywood Reporter to comment that the newly-revealed footage looked like “a trailer to a different movie than the one advertised earlier”, remarking that Jyn Erso appeared to be portrayed as a more vulnerable character, and highlighting the appearance of Galen Erso as a protective father figure.[85] Vanity Fair also commented on the emphasis given to Jyn’s relationship with her father; in a humorous reference to psychology, it remarked that Rogue One, like many of the previous films, was apparently drawing on “the Star Wars franchise’s greatest natural resource: daddy issues“.[86]

Tie-in novel

A tie-in novel to the film, Catalyst: A Rogue One Story, is set for release in November 2016.[87] Written by veteran Star Wars novelist James Luceno, the story is set some years before the events of Rogue One and provides a backstory to the 2016 film.[88]

Reception

Box office prediction

Early industry estimates at Box Office Pro have pegged the film to open up to $150M in its opening weekend and end its domestic run with a total gross of $500M.
