UPDATE 3! Our First Look At a Set From Rogue One?

rogue-one-title-treatment-1024x357

New photos have surfaced that appear to show a very familiar old Rebel Base being constructed at historic Shed 2 in Cardington, Bedfordshire in England. Could this be a set for the upcoming Rogue One shoot? Read on…

 

 

July 21, 2015

 

Shed 2 in Cardington, once the home berth of the experimental British airship R-100, also has a long and proud tradition as a soundstage for film and television productions. Christopher Nolan shot scenes in Shed 2 for Inception as well as for all three of his Batman movies, and the final Harry Potter film also used the hangar’s vast interior for some key scenes. And, on a slightly more relevant note for us, George Lucas shot a scene for Star Wars: A New Hope there back in 1976.

 

 

 

 

POTENTIAL SPOILERS

 

 

 

 


Now, from English airship historian and fellow Star Wars fan Trevor Monk comes some pretty convincing evidence that the Massassi temple that housed the hidden Rebel base in ANH is being reconstructed in the Cardington hangar for the upcoming shoot for Star Wars: Rogue One. Executive Producer Kathleen Kennedy announced at SDCC that principal photography for Rogue One would begin about ten days from now. Shed 2 at Cardington is rumored to be one of the soundstages the production intends to use.

 

Well, take a look at what’s being built in Shed 2:

“I dunno… there’s something familiar about this place.”

Judge for yourselves, but it sure looks like the old Massassi pyramid to us! And, of course, given the fact that Rogue One takes place just prior to the events of ANH, it would make sense that the Yavin base would make an appearance.

 

And just to add one more interesting little wrinkle to all of this, the ANH scene that was shot at Shed 2 in 1976? Well…

What do you all think? Are we indeed heading back to Yavin IV for Rogue One?

 

 

 

Thanks to Chris Ford for the heads up.

 

 

 

UPDATE!

 

August 17, 2015

 

 

Our friend Trevor Monk added several new photos from Cardington. You can clearly see that they have added vines to the stone. Now the Yavin look is complete. I wonder what’s beneath the white and blue tarps:

Yesterday Trevor Monk sent us more images from the set. Check them out:

UPDATE 3!

 

August 21, 2015

 

Thanks to our friend Trevor Monk again, we now know what’s under the tarps! Have a look:

 

Lander 02

 

Yes, that’s right. This is the lander that was recently revealed from another batch of photos from the Rogue One set (HERE).

 

Also beneath the white tarps it appears that they had several wooden X-Wing cut-outs:

 

Xwing

 

If you remember they used similar flats during the filming of The Force Awakens at Greenham Common:

 

Flats

 

These cut-outs are used in shots where it is not necessary to build a full ship models, since either the shot is static or the ships are located in the background and are barely visible.

    I am excited to see the story of how the Rebels got a hold of the Death Star plans. It will be awesome just to see a Star Wars movie that is set apart from the main story line.

      I see your point, but I think this movie won’t be so far away from the main storyline.
      It is a kind of prequel in my op.

      Plus, we’ll see familiar ships, bounty hunters from Ep.V with TCW extras like Cad Bane, probably Darth Vader, and so on.

        Yeah, it is a prequel technically. But I believe it’ll very much be a spin-off in the sense that it will take a dramatic departure from the normal filming and storytelling style of the main saga films. If Rogue One takes on a Saving Private Ryan-esque grittiness like it’s rumored to be doing, then it’ll most definitely feel different enough to classify it as “spinned-off”. I’m excited for it!

    Yavin setting will bring about casting problem like Dodonna, Young Leia.

    • July 21, 2015 at 7:09 pm
      Permalink

      Since this takes place shortly before ANH, Leia wouldn’t necessarily be there. She was working on behalf of the Rebels in the Senate, and using her pacifist home world of Alderaan as cover for her Rebel activities. She very likely didn’t spend a lot of time at the Yavin base.

      Dodonna, well… since he didn’t have that huge a role in ANH, they’ll probably “pull a Darrin” on him and substitute another actor if the character needs to be in Rogue One.

        Permalink

        You made a point. In that sense, you ve got to have Tarkin, all the more factoring in the novel Tarkin is canon. Still ,Ben Mendelsohn is too young for him.
        No Death Star plan without Tarkin.

        • July 22, 2015 at 5:27 pm
          Permalink

          I’ve been thinking about that too, and I don’t really know that Tarkin needs to be in the movie. Referred to, yes, as was the Emperor in ANH. But shown onscreen? Maybe not necessary.

          Think about it. Tarkin, at the time of Rogue One/ANH, was governor of a large section of the Outer Rim territories. Yes, the Death Star project was under his control, but he wouldn’t necessarily have been physically present to micromanage the project. He “had people for that.” ;^)

          It would certainly be difficult to include him in Rogue One, because of course the events of that movie take place very shortly before those of ANH, so we wouldn’t be looking at a younger version of him. We’d be looking at Tarkin pretty much as he appeared in ANH. And how do you recast Peter Cushing? Y’know?

            I wonder how difficult it would be to “age” Wayne Pygram? He’s in his mid 50’s and already played Tarkin in Ep III.

          • August 17, 2015 at 4:50 pm
            Permalink

            But he looks nothing like Tarkin. Ben Mendelson should get that role, and I think he will.

    • July 21, 2015 at 9:31 pm
      Permalink

      Yes, recasting masked characters is easy, but Tarkin or Dodonna during the ANH time period will be more problematic.

      My hunch is that they won’t bother with Dodonna, they will write Leia out of the story somehow, and maybe Tarkin will appear in holograms or something? *shrugs*

      • July 22, 2015 at 11:47 am
        Permalink

        Holograms are a great workaround I reckon. All you need is a good voice actor and you can CGI the hologram no problem, maybe using a body double.

        spoilers don’t ruin movies for me, but I want TFA to be as fresh as I possibly can.

        What STAR WARS spoilers do for me is help understand this universe more. Relationships, struggles, progress, everything that happens with an evolving story. But spoilers don’t often ruin a movie for me, because I can push that into a selective memory department.

        TFA spoiler “free” is a struggle. I gave up heroin easier than this. I gave up fat women easier than this. I gave up bacon easier than this….I won’t give up weed, but you know what I mean right

      If you are trying to avoid spoilers, you should not be visiting sites like this one at all, MSW, nor SWU. That’s the only way to guarantee you from seeing spoilers (since that’s what these sites are mostly about). Want to avoid from possibly bumping into one, stick to facebook fan sites and SW forum-only fan site and avoid sites like SW7N, MSW, and SWU like the Plague).

      Sorry buddy, no offense, but I’m tired of hearing from the “I’m trying to avoid spoilers” crowd yet continue to peruse sites that are dedicated to providing spoilers most of the time. It’s hypocrite and it gets a little annoying after a while.

        You missed the point. I don’t judge people for reading spoilers and then read them myself, because then I’d be a hypocrite. I try and avoid MOST spoilers, which with something people call “HEADLINES” I’m able to pick and choose the ones I want to read.

        Regarding Rogue One, I just said I am reading ALL THE SPOILERS I possibly can…so why would I avoid this?

          I was referring to sites like this one in general (and MSW and SWU). Though you have the option to click on the story of your choice, the temptation to click and stumble onto a spoiler is there no matter how much you’re trying to avoid it just by virtue of visiting these sites’ home pages.

        Yes, I want to keep TFA as fresh as possible while still being part of the online SW community. And so far, I’ve managed to do just fine with that, even while writing for this site and helping to moderate the forums.

        Why are you so concerned about whether or not other people are trying to avoid major spoilers? You have your fun, and we’ll have ours. Is that okay? ;^)

    I wish people would quit saying this is Yavin…..considering the teaser photo was of the Death Star orbiting it…it is pretty plain to se that it is not Yavin. Considering the Empire had no clue Yavin was even a base or populated by rebels until they tracked the Falcon there after the Death Star escape..Yavin is no doubt the Base the Alliance escapes to as I am sure the Death Star Destroys the planet their base is on in this movie and makes the Alliance crap their pants when they realize what the Empire has built

    • July 21, 2015 at 7:59 pm
      Permalink

      Who said that the planet in the teaser was Yavin? I think it’s pretty obvious that it was not, given the TIE fighter roaring by overhead and the fact that the Death Star was in VERY close orbit around it.

      But story-wise, the Yavin base would almost certainly factor into the events of this movie. It’s right there in the ANH opening crawl: “Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire.” And the “hidden base” is referenced over and over in that film, and turns out to be on Yavin IV.

      Now, unless LFL is in “continuity is for wusses” mode on this film, I think it’s almost a given that we’d see the Yavin IV base at some point in Rogue One. And IMHO the set being constructed at Cardington tends to support this assumption.

      As for the Death Star destroying the current Rebel base in this film, again we come up against basic continuity with ANH. The destruction of Alderaan was the first full-on test of the Death Star’s planet-killing superlaser. Tarkin basically said as much.

    Do you think it’s a possibility that not only is it a prequel, it is also follows the events of ANH/Post-ANH but from a different person’s point of view? Take the Jedi storyline completely out of it and focus only on the Rebel storyline and what else happens behind the scenes Post-Death Star. It’s just a thought.

      What a great idea. Have Bail Organa as a big part when you see his heroic regroup to Alderaan after their success and he passes it to Leia (only have to show hand to hand or do a Terminator Genisys Arnie CG). Then as Leia’s ship disappears into the sky Bail sits back and thanks the force for this end to the Empire without too many casualties… Then you see an ominous shape in the evening sunset, like an eclipse.

    I’m calling it now: We will see a very young Poe Dameron in Rogue One, or maybe just his father and/or mother.
    Oscar has hinted several times that Poe is from Yavin (he may be joking, but he has hinted at least twice now, once “speculating” at SDCC that Poe could have seen the medal ceremony and been inspired). Oscar was born in 79, so his character would have to be a few years older than he is to be an infant at the time. Maybe his father was a pilot and he says a quick farewell to his son before going on a final mission.

      “Maybe his father was a pilot and he says a quick farewell to his son”

      Could Poe somehow be related to either Bail Organa or Diego Luna’s character?

    According to the Dark Forces game, it is Kyle Katarn who steals the plans on one of the missions. Hopefully Kyle Katarn has a place on this movie, it is a great character that I would like to see in a movie.

      You mean I am alive again? Sigh! It will be neat razzing kid Luke again and shooting womprats with him close to Jabba’s Palace; but, avoid those frogs! More Taun Taun and Dewbacc riden for ya southern Tattoine folks. Out west I hear of a bar of outlaws across the universe, called the Cantina. Its guarded by a few of Sandtroopers who are asleep at the post!

      Maybe I can visit Alderan again on my vacation! For no other reasons but BECAUSE IT IS THERE! I Already did some bungee jumping at Bespin last year! This year they have me scouting around the Endor-like Forrest’s on Yavin; but there is nothing to see there! So we move along! ( ;- ) 3

    Sometimes miniatures, cgi, and matte paintings are a good idea. This seems kind of huge to build for real, I don’t think they even built the original.

    Wow thanks for spoiling the ending to Rogue One guys.

    The last scene is obviously the medal ceremony from the perspective of the spies who stole the plans, looking at Han, Chewie and Luke from behind.

    Nice one!

    The movie ends with the plans handed over on Alderaan with hopefully a digital princess leia. Locations, deathstar, space, yavin, alderaan and Endor, the construction site. We will see tarkin and r2d2 and threepio plus captain antiles.

    Mads Mikeklkelsen could be a rival Moff against Ben Mendelshon is a great casting. If Ben is Tarkin, Mads becomes main antagonist. Addition of Mads is last minutes decision due to cancellation of Hannibal TV series, I imagine.

    RE the flats = not just that, but most of the ships in the hangar scene in SW were flats as well. Kinda of suspect they’ll use these more for reference for CG versions to be composited on the new films, rather than leave them as 2D flats.

    What is the rebels thinking having a massive base in open sight on a planets surface, for all to see.

    Maybe imperial probe droids haven`t been invented in this stage of the time line I don`t know. But you know how it goes. Once your discovered, imperial walkers are not far behind

    May I propose scouting out a planet that has huge accessible underground caves/caverns that would equally suffice as a subterranean hanger, and being more inconspicuous.

      Fact: Whites have been scrubbed from hero roles and replaced with minorities.

      So…I propose that White males don’t even see TFA because it’s an anti-White film.

      I’m sure the precious minorities and feminists whom Disney loves so much will more than makeup for their absence at the box-office.

    I’m a PFX guy all the way, but are they really still doing cut-outs? Still?

    Like, that’s one of the best uses for CG: background stuff you don’t notice – just ask David Fincher. They don’t REALLY need to use a cutout when a pre-existing model of an X-wing will do just as well.

    There be X-Wings Captain!

    I thought the shape in the Update 2 looked a bit like a Y-Wing Nacelle too.

    I thought we might not have reached Yavin yet and this would have started on Dantooine where the base could have been abandoned in a rush.
