New Rogue One Photos Reveal New Scenes from the Movie

New photos from the ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘ set have been revealed thanks to /Film, showing off several key deleted scenes images that didn’t end up making it into the smash hit film. Check them out!


After a grueling 18 days in release, ‘Rogue One’ passed 800 million dollars in worldwide box-office take! With the huge response that the film has been getting, some fans have been flocking to their movie theaters over and over again to see the film. The film is fun, fast and flash, has some memorable characters, and most critics and fans are saying it’s better than every Star Wars film since the original trilogy.



With most blockbuster films, there’s a period of time when the filmmakers attempt to key in on what direction the film is going to take, the choice of using particular shot over another and whether the original story breakdown makes sense on screen. In Rogue One, the editors took a rather unique approach that used a combination of footage from Star Wars movies, and hundreds of other movies in order to figure out the pacing of the movie. What happened during the editing of the film is turning out to be something that has caught the attention of the Star Wars fan base! It appears that a different cut of the film existed that was composed of alternate footage of scenes that didn’t make FINAL CUT. Intrigued?



Normally, fans wouldn’t get so excited about some small snippets of cut footage, but these Rogue One scenes appear to be a whole other beast, especially considering that the film editors (Colin Goudie and John Gilroy) revealed the existence of several scenes that were re-worked. It almost makes you wonder what the original cut was all about.


A recent Slashfilm report reveals a few new never-before-seen photos that include key deleted scenes images that could give us a better insight into what the original cut might have entailed. The photos consist of the Rogue One team members, shots from the beach that show Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) involved in the action, K-2SO fighting on the shores of Scarif, soldiers and pilots, several Imperial troops, aliens, a reflective moment with Jyn Erso in the Rebel base on Yavin IV and Ben Mendelsohn’s Director Orson Krennic with his blaster drawn.


Also, check out a few new set photographer snaps of scenes as they’re being filmed and the other behind-the-scenes that include the workings of the film crew.

    Captain Andor is in my top 5 Star Wars characters post Disney sale. Luna gave such a top shelf performance.

      Agreed. He was excellent and possibly much better than some are giving him credit for. He brought a very nuanced performance to the role…much like Sir Alec Guinness in ANH.

    The Krennic shot definately looks the more interesting. Was he pointing at Tarkin? Also there clearly was at least one more scene with Vader (maybe more).

    I loved the film, and that’s the reason why I want to see more of it. If we’ve learned something with the Blu-ray release of TFA is that not much will be shown in the Blu-ray of Rogue One, which is a pity.

      I wonder. I just saw an interview the other day where Ben Mendelsohn was talking about he was using this gun on the set that took a lot of setting up to use and was pretty dynamic and had some kick to it.

      My theory is that the “other” Vader scene was actually the one on Mustafar that we got in the final film, but it was originally on the Death Star. If you look at early trailer shots, there are shots of Vader emerging from his room and talking to Krennic, but with a more grayish lighting pattern, and with the Death Star’s interior behind him.

    Occurs to me that we saw NOTHING shot against that 3 story rear projection screen. Interesting.

    • January 5, 2017 at 6:52 am

      That screen was used for the benefit of the actors in the cockpits of the various ships and craft, so they would have something more tangible to act against. But you DID “see” at least one of those backdrops in the film – the shots of hyperspace in the background from within the U-Wing during a couple of shots. This was explained in another article here several weeks back actually.

      The X-Wings trying to head for the shield gate is also shot with those screens. You’re just cranky bro 🙂

    I must buy that AT&T AT-AT shirt now. That is awesome!

    The movie doesn’t need more scenes in the first hour that’s for sure. If anything it needs about 15 minutes cut.

    • January 5, 2017 at 9:32 pm

      But from where? The beginning was choppy, but I can’t imagine removing any of it without creating a film that doesn’t make sense.

        I was thinking about it and i think they really could’ve lost the entire prologue sequence. Everything in there could’ve been explained in a few lines of dialogue. When they break out Jyn it would be nice mystery for the audience to try and figure out what the Rebellion wants her for, and literally everything that happened in the prologue could’ve been explained in the scene where Mon Mothma gives her the mission. The only reason they had the prologue was try to set up feelings for when the characters die.

          Meh. i like being shown rather than told. And death Troopers are badass, but that’s just my fanboy-ness talking.

      The Eadu and later Jedha scenes were fairly dull I admit. Seems like they spent forever imprisoned. They could have cut there.

      • January 6, 2017 at 9:04 pm

        I agree. A lot of what was accomplished could’ve been done faster and in other ways. They spent a lot of time on character development there, but they could’ve done that while they were on the mission to steal the plans. I feel like the mission should’ve been the center of the movie instead of the Jyn and Galen relationship. The only reason they go to Eadu was to give her a moment with her father.She could’ve seen her father killed via a transmission on the mission and it would’ve given her the ultimate resolve to be successful in her mission.

        • January 11, 2017 at 9:55 am

          Definitely. There was a lack of character development in some of the other characters but I think they are still getting used to the idea of standalone SW films and how to balance that with plot development.

    I just hope they take the opportunity to add a heap of this additional footage to the outtakes on the BluRay version. And that there are plenty of interviews and decent behind the scenes stuff.

    The TFA release was so poor considering they know Star Wars fans love the behind the scenes stuff and additional information on the space characters etc etc.

    Please Rogue One Disney people, take a note out of the Lord of the Rings collectors edition releases and put some of that extra footage and behind the scenes stuff together in a decent collectors release.

    Imagine a release with an alternative ending. That won’t happen, but wouldn’t it be awesome…..OK, OK I heard the comments already.

    I’d be happy with just some decent behind the scenes footage.

    The image of Baze standing next to the crashed U-wing reinforces my theory that in the original cut they were shot down and had to run for cover, hence the beach fighting. It’s also the only reason I can think of someone running ~towards~ walkers, assuming the ocean is at their backs.

    I’d buy that AT-AT shirt.
