New ‘Rogue One’ “Locations” Featurette

An all-new ‘Rogue One‘ behind the scenes featurette has been released over at the Star Wars Youtube channel. The featurette gives you behind-the-scenes look at the beautiful locations that were used in the film. Check it out!


The cast and crew of ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ discuss their views on the set locations used in the new blockbuster hit from Disney and Lucasfilm. Gareth Edwards narrates the featurette that also gives you a few snippets of what looks to possibly be a removed “Trek Across Jedha” scene that never made it into the final cut.

Check out the featurette below:

    We got over twice the number of planets we saw in TFA and only two of them were retreads so I was very happy on that front. Scarif was my favorite though of this film, I really enjoyed the look of the Jedha rock base too for pure originality. I was hoping we’d get something really different like that in TFA for the Resistance Base but there are two more films left in the ST. I’d really like to see that cool cliff one that reminds me of Pinnacle Base from Dark Empire II done onscreen.

      It’s surreal that we saw the R1 characters set foot on Coruscant before the OT ones have too considering all the comics where we have seen them on that planet. Then again, I’m sure it would be pretty jarring at the same time seeing as how we’ve never really see them visit any civilized world in the existing 7 films in the saga.

        I think this is the big difference between 7 and R1. 7 tried to stay with originals and ignore the prequels, R1 bridged OT with ST. just remember the clone turbo tank used as an old vehicle in the labor camp.

          To be fair, TFA is 50 years removed from the PT, while Rogue One is only 20 years removed.

            yeah, that’s true, but such environments like Coruscant are known in canon to exist, yet in VII they came up with Hosnian almost like Coruscant never existed (many people even confused the two when seeing episode VII). Also the political side is inexistent in VII, as they deleted the only scenes that refer to it, while in Rogue One you still have mentions of political subplots (which continue all the eay to IV, until the emperor retires the senate).
            There are plenty of things that VII could have done so that it wouldn’t completely ignore the PT, but because TFA was directed by a strict PT hater, well, all of that was lost. I sincerely don’t know what does Edwards think of the prequels, or the writers behind Rogue One, but they certainly worked as to connect the PT to the OT, but also Rebels and TCW to the live-action films.

          It sure did a great job with that. Did not feel forced at all, I didn’t even notice a few till it was over. Makes me that much more eager for the other spinoffs.

    you meant locations that weren’t used in the film…

        Nonsense, Rogue One was terrible and Star Wars Is Dead™.

        Jordan and the camels… I don’t recall those guys appearing outside of jedha at all…

    Really love the photo from the top.

    So, the original third act had Jyn and Cassian more involved in the ground battle. Would love to see that some day. Jedha was my favorite part of the movie. Would love to see more scenes from that as well.
