SW Daily Buzz: New Stills from the Rogue One Set; Edwards on Filming the First Person X-Wing Battle and More


On today’s buzz we have: A young photographer shares a very cool still from the set of Rogue One; everything we know about the movie so far according to StarWars.com’s Brian Young; a few beautiful shots from Scarif from Star Wars: Battlefront; the latest from the press junket in Japan and more.



23-year-old Australian photographer Alex Benetel shared a stunning image from the Rogue One set featuring the character Edrio Two-Tubes, standing in front of a crashed X-Wing in the Holy City on Jedha. The photo was taken last year during the filming of Rogue One.




And another cool image with some more mercenaries from Rogue One by visionelie (thanks to PrensaImperial):





Gareth Edwards reveals to Entertainment Weekly how they filmed the first person X-Wing battle:

“When we were filming the X-wing footage in the film, we had the X-wing [cockpit] mounted to a gimbal so it could move around, like it was really flying,” Edwards says. “Then all around were the screens, in 180 degrees, that were projecting space and this pre-animated flight path as the X-wing was moving around, like it was really flying.”

“I got inside this X-wing, put the camera on top of my shoulder and they closed the cockpit. Then the thing just started flying and we started going through space in a space battle. And I was filming it, trying to film everything and trying to get the shots as well as I could.”

    I dislike Kathleen Kennedy’s virtue signalling. I wonder why she feels the need to do it.

      To upset men such as yourself and prove women are just as capable to succeed in running a franchise as big as Star Wars as white men are.

        Funny how your ignorant stupid ass had to throw “white” in there. Jump off a cliff.

          He also assumed that I was man, simply because I disagreed with him. It just shows the kind of ideas and prejudices that statements like his usually go hand-in-hand with.

          White heterosexual men hold the most power in Hollywood, and the rest of the country. Sorry you don’t like facts. You and TUD can be besties.
