Gareth Edwards on Why There Are No Deleted Scenes on the Rogue One Blu-Ray and the Alternate Ending of the Movie!

We are just 20 days away from the home release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In the last few days, director Gareth Edwards has been very actively promoting the movie, discussing new interesting details about it. In a new interview with /Film, Edwards revealed what was the initial plan for the ending of the movie. In another interview with Fandango, the Rogue One director discussed the chances of seeing deleted scenes from the movie in the future.

 

 

/Film got a chance to speak with Gareth Edwards at the SXSW fest in Austin, Texas, where he was a special guest.

 

From /Film:

/Film: Can you talk about the original ending? We know there were reshoots, but I’d like know what wasn’t working and what you actually set out to change.

Gareth Edwards: I think the main thing that changed at the end…what used to happen, and you can get a sense of this in the early trailers, the transmission tower for the plans was separate from the main base on Scarif. To transmit the plans, they had to escape and run along the beach and go up the tower. In cutting the film, it just felt too long. We had to find ways to compress the third act, which was quite long as it was. And one real, fast, brutal solution was to put the tower in the base, so they don’t have to run across the beach and do all of that stuff to get there. That became a decision that eliminated the shots you see in the trailer of the back of Cassian and Jyn and the AT-ATs. That was some of the reinvention that happened. It was all to do with compression.

 

 

As cool as many things are, and they really are, you can’t outstay your welcome. We’ve all done it. We’ve all sat in a movie and even if you love a film, there’s that moment where you want to look at your watch, or you feel like “Okay, I hope it ends soon.” You don’t want the audience thinking that. You don’t want them to lag. If you feel that when you watch something back, you need to find a way to tighten it somewhere. That was a big win for a compression.

 

 

 

In another interview Fandango directly asked Gareth whether we’ll ever see any of the alternate footage, and why there are no deleted scenes on the upcoming Blu-ray.

There’s not an individual scene that you can drag and drop and put on a Blu-ray. There are little things that would come and go during the process of post-production, but they’re not scenes. They’re more moments within the scenes, or a single shot. So it’s impossible to be able to do that, and that’s why the decision was made.

The stuff people talk about, like what they saw in the trailer, they’re not scenes you can just put on a DVD. They’re moments within scenes and threads, and you pull a thread and it all changes. It was changing the whole time. It’s not like there was one version and then there was this other version — it was like this thing that incrementally evolved constantly through all of post-production and didn’t stop until there was a gun at our heads and we were forced to release the movie.

 

And to put the final nail in the coffin of the Rogue One deleted scenes, Edwards said that the visual effects for the alternate scenes were never finished, so they are not just sitting somewhere waiting to be added to the Blu-Ray.

  • Kicker2

    I saw a still of Vader and Krennic on the Death Star. What was that from?

    • TUD

      That was a deleted scene, but I personally believe that all that happened is that the scene was re-filmes to be on Mustafar instead of on the Death Star.

      • Kicker2

        Pablo said it was always set on Mustafar unless you’re going to say he’s lying. I asked him that specifically and I’ve seen a still that was not the same scene seen in the trailer.

        • TUD

          Well we know that the people at Lucasfilm have no problem lying to the fans, so I guess we’ll have to see for sure. If it was indeed a unique scene, then it probably just destroyed the pacing.

          • Uncle Deadly

            When did they lie?

            • Phil Heeks

              Lucas himself has been rampantly lying since the early 1980s. just two examples of MANY: he claims Vader was always Luke’s father and Leia was always Luke’s sister. BS.

              • Uncle Deadly

                Yeah, Lucas BS’s plenty, no doubt. Well established. I was asking about LFL and its employees in this new era.

              • TUD

                Yep. There’s no proof of the Vader twist existing before 1978.

            • TUD

              JJ lies about the special features on the TFA Blu-ray (strange, someone lying about the special features on a Star Wars Blu-ray only to release exactly the version that everyone wanted later in a disgusting display of double-dipping. Seems familiar).

              • Uncle Deadly

                He isn’t part of LFL, but he might have honestly thought that was it. He might not have, but I have trouble saying people lied when I don’t know what they knew at the time.

                • TUD

                  I guess that’s a fair assessment.

                  • Uncle Deadly

                    That’s all I ever aim for.

          • Kicker2

            But why lie about that scene? Why just not answer the question? I asked if they always had he scene set on Mustafar in the castle and he said it always was.

            • TUD

              Dunno. Chances are he was telling the truth, though.

    • Arec Baldrin (alias Grant)

      It’s still in the trailer too.

  • vincanss

    I do believe he’s a bit tied by the ‘Mouse’ on what he should or shouldn’t say if I’m being honest. On other dvd’s or blu ray’s in years gone by, the deleted stuff gets put on without completed or started visual effects, so that by itself isn’t the world’s best reason not to include something.

    The alternate threads Gareth also describes are also something that ironically sounds like a great opportunity to stick a couple of ‘alternate’ version scenes on a blu-ray. I guess some of that stuff may yet materialise down the line in the inevitable 5 year anniversary special edition re-release in UHD..

  • Skywalker

    I don’t need to cancel my pre order in hopes of there being a future release with deleted scenes.

  • WackyBantha

    Disney/Lucasfilm will have the final say on whether to release these clips/scenes/segments if they decide to double dip later this year or next year with an extras-heavy super duper bantha-sized blu-ray release. I have to believe that we’ll get something regardless of the above quotes by Gareth Edwards. Something is better than nothing.

  • Petar Ramljak

    The most important thing is that final movie version is amazing, with reshoots or not, that’s less important

  • TUD

    Yeah, this is utter bullshit. Just admit the reshoots and release the deleted scenes, already.

    • Kicker2

      He admitted the reshoots a long time ago

  • Andrew Gac

    I rebel !

  • Gerry Blue

    Ok then, no extra content means I’ll have to wait for the next BD release, meanwhile, a digital copy of the movie should suffice

    • Arec Baldrin (alias Grant)

      Yo-ho yo-ho, A pirate’s life for me!

      • Gerry Blue

        Call me LeChuck

      • Uncle Deadly

        Real fans don’t steal.

        • TUD

          True Scotsmen don’t use logical fallacies.

          • Uncle Deadly

            Only a Sith deals in Absolute vodka.

  • patriot8813

    So after awhile, they are releasing another version and suddenly its, we decided to add in visual effects to some and stand in stuff for others due to fan demand. Sigh.

    • Arec Baldrin (alias Grant)

      Di$ney loves you too.

  • Arec Baldrin (alias Grant)

    Gee, Where have I heard this song and dance before?

    • Arec Baldrin (alias Grant)

      Sort of makes one prefer the honest fleecing by Uncle George when it comes to this.

      • Uncle Deadly

        No one forces you to buy anything

        • Kill Kanan, save the show!

          No one prevents you from being vocal about it either.

    • American_Ignorant

      Don’t worry Snarkums, we know when you hear that same tired old song you’ll still do your little puppet dance to it.

      Same complaints, different year. And you even replied to yourself like old times.

  • Speednet21

    If you want to see the “deleted scenes”, just fire up one of the trailers. I’m personally much more interested in getting a commentary track. That’s the thing I’ll bet Disney makes us wait until November/December for. On the “big features” release. *sigh*

    • Matthew Borchers

      True. Are the trailers and TV spots going to be on the bluray?

    • Kill Kanan, save the show!

      Shame Disney shame!

  • Brett Smith

    All I’m seeing in the comments is “I want deleted scenes that’ll I’ll watch a couple times and never going to watch again, so I’m not buying this BR release” When in reality, they’ll buy it, and then the next release as well, and the next after that, lol.

    I myself will only be buying this BR because it’s the movie I saw, and the movie was good, and I’d like to be able to own a copy. I’m sure there will be other extra content as well, but if there is or isn’t doesn’t matter.

    • DougP

      Re: “in reality, they’ll buy it, and then the next release as well,”

      I won’t be.

      Don’t own TFA yet, as I’m waiting on a Blu Ray UHD (~4K) release. Same with R1.

      Done getting milked.

  • Shakes’ likes da Dog’s Mess!

    No deleted scenes….until the super duper Jedi Blue Rey edition, with 15% extra Sith Lord. Yay!

    • DougP

      Re: “with 15% extra Sith Lord.”

      I’d be down with 15% more Sith Lord! :)

  • Adavanter Mki

    I just want to see it again. I don’t much care for the behind the scenes stuff. Don’t get me wrong… I love it during the hype building. After the movie is out… I tend to no longer care.

  • Robert

    That actually makes a lot of sense what was said here. I feel like if there was an entire fight to a whole other section of the base through some AT-AT’s that would drag out the final scene to crazy levels. I no longer care about deleted scenes for this movie because a lot of them have been talked about and we’ve got the trailers to show them to us. I just want to watch the movie again because it was good.

  • Jason

    Gareth better hope there isn’t some “Speacial Edition” coming in a year that does have them or he’s gonna have some egg on his face.

  • Portaler

    What a pity ! But as many have said there will be another double dip release. Hopefully with Gareth Edwards commentary. That would be great.

    While there may not be additional or edited footage, hopefully there will be behind the scenes footage,

    I mean how hard is it to hire a small team of 2-3 people to run around during the shooting and catch some cool moments and show the sets or background actors in more detail. All that stuff is mega interesting and not hard to do. Wouldn’t even need to be Lord of the Rings standard (but would be nice).

  • Kicker2

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3d1b1bc40b4c1ccc4dbc3e112fc883feb293e7fae95cbbb2f333ee5cafaf0ebe.jpg this was not the power isn’t measurable seeing seeing the trailer look closely the background of this one and at the one in the trailer. Pablo said that meeting between Krennic and Vader was always on meant to be on the Mustafar.

  • Andrew

    “There’s not an individual scene that you can drag and drop and put on a Blu-ray.”

    Fine, I understand. But a making-off or a short featurette where they discuss and show some extra footage won’t hurt us either.

  • Uncle Deadly

    Makes sense to me.

  • Villain

    I’ve only seen the Force Awakens deleted scenes once so its not the end of the world that there are no deleted scenes this time, but when it seems like so much was cut I’d like to see at least a couple

  • Crixxxx

    Wasn’t there a scene of Krennic talking to Vader about the power of the Death Star?

    • Kill Kanan, save the show!

      Yeah I don’t believe that there aren’t deleted scenes.

  • Andorian Soup

    Hey, who remembers BEFORE the days of deleted scenes? Who remembers buying a movie on VHS or DVD because you just wanted to rewatch the bloody movie? Who remembers just being grateful for a nice shiny box to put on your shelf and being able to say, now I OWN Return of the Jedi and now I can watch it any time I want?

    Rogue One was a great movie and I will be buying and watching it immediately!

    The moment that any deleted scenes or makeup tests or extreme close-ups of Felicity Jones having breakfast on-set are released on any given format I’ll be able to watch them on YouTube, in super HD, via my 48″, Warp 7 approved, titanium ore, Smarter-than-me TV. Which I won’t be doing.

    Now, where’s my slippers?

    • Colin

      The moment when they put the deleted scenes at the END of the VHS? I know that was an extreme rarity but i do have some VHS that had deleted scenes and stuff added on to the end of the film. With that said, i get what you’re saying lol

    • Kill Kanan, save the show!

      DVD started the whole deleted scenes craze.

      • Maude St. Nubbins

        Actually, Laser Disc did. I held onto the OT box set for years because of the extras.

        • Kill Kanan, save the show!

          Actually, while Laser Dissc put deleted scenes on them often, so few had LD players that I would hardly call it starting the craze. DVD is when people really started looking at and for them and expecting them.

    • Uncle Deadly

      Honestly, I watche a deleted scene once and forget it exists. It’s never something I say “THAT should have been in the movie.”

    • Mr_Crankypants

      Deleted scenes aren’t a deal breaker for me, certainly. That said, the docs on the SW DVDs were actually fascinating, as were even the mini-features on even the LD releases (“how the walkers walk” and the look into the archives both spring to mind), and even in the days of VHS we had things like Classic Creatures, or From Star Wars to Jedi – you just had to buy them separately from the films. Mostly I find myself getting annoyed by the new model of a bare-bones release, followed the same year by a release full of BTS stuff at the same price. Particularly when certain film makers swear up and down that no such thing is planned, that’s hard to stomach.

  • DEKKA129

    Personally, I’m looking forward to having a blu-ray copy of the film so I can watch it to death.

    That said, I don’t believe for a second that there’s no material for even a modest little batch of deleted scenes. I don’t imagine that there’s enough to put together an alternate cut of the film, given that the direction of the movie (particularly the final act) was apparently changed so substantially prior to reshoots that the original version never had all of its shots completed. But no material for deleted scenes? Not a chance. That’s like when J.J. insisted about a year ago that they used everything they had for the deleted scenes feature on the initial blu-ray release of TFA. And then, less than a year later, another home release comes out, and lo and behold, it has additional deleted scenes.

    No, it’s not a deal-breaker. The movie itself is the important thing. But given the reported extent of the reshoots and the extent to which they supposedly changed the final film, there’s no way that there aren’t scenes that didn’t make it into the final film, or that made it into the final film in significantly altered form.

    We’ll see in a year or two when the “Ultimate Totally Wizard Collectors’ Edition” is released. ;^)

    • Colin

      Agreed, there is most definitely footage that (even is Edwards says isn’t finished and blah blah blah) will get dragged onto the releases whether he wants them there or not. This is Star Wars…Disney will get every drop of Blue Milk from this and release it over and over again. If anything, i just hope that this isn’t a trend of sorts releasing the first blu-ray with no deleted scenes. Unless the factor is here that since the movie itself had reshoots and such that they just NEEDED to get a dvd/Blu-ray out immediately and they didn’t have time but hey, who knows.

      Point is, i’m almost positive there will be one with deleted scenes.

    • Kill Kanan, save the show!

      Exactly, even if it’s alternate scenes with incomplete effects (which has been done many times with SW) or a making of doc that snips of the deleted stuff in them or even just an edit featuring a bunch of deleted stuff put together like on the Gladiator disc, they could do it. They are really cheap and greedy with these releases. The more money they make, the more they think the can make and so hold back on stuff. With both TFA and RO exceeding expectations, they should honestly hire someone to really put something special together. Not like they aren’t going to sell like hotcakes when they come out.
      Hopefully disney get’s their crap together going forward with future releases.

  • Kylo Ryan

    I just don’t like that Disney is not being transparent with us about some of the goings on with star wars. We’re just now getting some inkling of an explanation for the reshoots and we’ve never been told the full story of harrison’s leg injury. Not to mention what happened with Josh Trank. Flashback to the prequels where we got some amazing behind the scenes features breaking down each movie. There you can pretty much see where the prequels went wrong because the bonus features are so good! Now everything put out by disney has to have a sheen over it because they think it’ll hurt the brand to put out anything remotely negative. We’re smarter than that disney! Give us fans some credit!

    • LastOfTheDeji

      I see where you’re coming from, but is it really something owed to the customers? I’d think it a little weird if Starbucks was responsible to be transparent to their customer base and inform customers what happened to certain employee’s when they fall ill or get injured. I don’t think Nintendo has a responsibility to tell us every iteration of their video games from the drawing board to the finished product. I don’t think a customer is ever owed anything else aside from a quality product and everything else is a generosity on behalf of the producer of said product. Of course it was great to get the behind the features stuff Lucas provided but that was before Star Wars went from being movies to Disney’s marvel model which is put out not bad movies, but also not great movies, but more right down the middle movies (unless they unleashed Rian to be a little more free to craft a great story with TLJ). You’re right, they won’t put out anything that looks bad and that sucks, but on the other hand there’s never been a requirement to share every detail of your work… I think the only place the public can really complain about that is in the Public Sector and even that is barely transparent.

      • Kill Kanan, save the show!

        No one said anything about them owing it to the customers. But, yeah, actually, I do kind of feel like they do owe stuff to the fans for all the love, support and MONEY they’ve given over the years. LFL always had that approach, showed appreciation for the fans. Disney’s a little more… distant.

        • Kylo Ryan

          Could not agree more

        • Maude St. Nubbins

          The world has changed considerably since even the Prequel trilogy. Behind-the-scenes stuff is no longer a selling point. With so many ways to consume films, it’s a niche market at best. LFL had a different approach because consumer appetites were different. And besides, LFL still runs the business and makes the strategy decisions. Don’t lay this on Disney, and don’t retcon Lucasfilm’s fan appreciation. They were never a paragon of transparency until there were years of distance between the audience and the original releases. And they still felt content to rerelease the films on an almost annual basic.

          You’re comparing the marketing of new films to the slow drip, drip, drip of legacy content for 30 year old films. I have yet to see an official book that blows the lid off the missteps of the prequel trilogy, for instance, and I waited several decades to finally see deleted footage from the original trilogy officially released.

          • Kill Kanan, save the show!

            Star Wars is its own beast. Plus, I disagree with your assessment about behind the scenes stuff no longer being a selling point. There are numerous documentaries out now about Star Trek and one coming soon about DS9 that had major crowdfunding. As well, look at all the shows like “talking dead” and “after anarchy” and the others, not to mention online stuff… like “rebels recon.”
            So the appetite is there and Disney knows it, hence the collector’s release of TFA after the main release.

            Deleted footage from the OT has been out for a while. They released in on a computer CD back around the special editions. Probably would have been out sooner if not for the special editions and george using so much of it. Plus, there wasn’t really a way to release it before DVD/internet/computer market.

            As far as PT, why would LFL make a book about missteps of PT? That would be an unofficial book, which would have to be written by someone not affliated with LFL. And my guess is the interest for that isn’t there or at least anyone who would make that book thinks so. plus, if I was writing a book about PT, why would I want to make a book that requires me to be negative like that – that’s no fun.

            • Mr_Crankypants

              “As far as PT, why would LFL make a book about missteps of PT? That would be an unofficial book, which would have to be written by someone not affliated with LFL. ”
              .
              Since the first original ESB making of book (released with the movie) LFL has been willing to officially talk about both good and bad (just check out MH’s open frustration with Kirsch during the filming of the duel and the weather vane sequences). Neither have Rinzler’s subsequent retrospective books shied away from the difficult aspects of the various productions. Certainly Lucas himself signed off on “The Beginning”, and every other documentary released with each PT film, and those also don’t neglect the less than glowing feelings all concerned (except for Rick Fucking Mccallum – goddamn is that guy a sycophantic suck up) had during various phases of production. This “EVERYTHING IS AWSOME!!! EVERYTHING IS COOL WHEN YOU’RE PART OF A TEAM!!!!” thing is definitely a post-acquisition phenomenon.

              • Kill Kanan, save the show!

                Big difference in talking about good and bad aspects on making a movie and just talking about “why the movies failed” (not that they did). The making of books for the PT touch on difficult aspects on filmmaking, but like the official making of books for the OT, they still show the movies in a negative light. My understanding is Maude was looking for a book that basically analyzed why the PT sucked (which it didn’t!) based on his comment that he wanted on that “blows the lid off the missteps of the prequel trilogy.”

        • LastOfTheDeji

          I totally feel you man. But I’m just playing devil’s advocate. Why would it be that we feel this way for Star Wars but nobody ever really says that to brands they are loyal to when it comes to food or clothing. I mean there’s a little food spot I go to every Thursday on my lunch break and because I’ve been doing it for almost a year now they’ll occasionally give me a free drink or extra meal but that’s when they decide to. And Disney has done that to an extent with respect to Star Wars right? The only film they’ve released so far on home media is TFA and they’ve done a little bit. So technically they are, its just that we want MORE than they provide. I totally feel you though, I still wish Star Wars wasn’t under the giant banner that is Disney because we’re never really going to get all the dope features we used to or feel as close to Lucasfilm as we did in the past.

          • Kill Kanan, save the show!

            Food/clothes = neccessity. Also, people are not as devoted to food/clothes in masses the way they are to SW. Plus, some brands like Nike had done a lot for their customers, but are in many ways limited. They don’t make Nike movies, comics, statues, toys.

    • Kill Kanan, save the show!

      “here you can pretty much see where the prequels went wrong”

      you just answered your own question. BUT I disagree with this and the fact the prequels went wrong. That’s so broad.

      • Kylo Ryan

        I enjoy the prequels but I feel they went wrong in telling the story of Anakin Skywalkers fall. The execution of scenes and dialogue is bad imo and as redlettermedia pointed out, the behind the scenes stuff shows that nobody really challenged George on some of his questionable decisions.

        • Uncle Deadly

          I wouldn’t really use redlettermedia as a citation because they took stuff out of context for comedic purposes.

          But yeah, George didn’t get much pushback.

          • Mr_Crankypants

            RLM is worse than cancer. It is to legitimate criticism what things like The Daily Show are to legitimate journalism. Easily digestible, but ultimately have all the depth of a greeting card.

          • Kylo Ryan

            I wasn’t really citing them, just giving them credit for a point I agree with. They do play for comedy a lot but I think they offer some good insights and bring a different perspective on not just star wars but film in general. They’re certainly not for everyone and they couldn’t care less that some people don’t like them, which I think is commendable.

        • Kill Kanan, save the show!

          I think George hired people for the PT that didn’t really provide pushback, but I’m sure in some areas there was. I heard a story that George wanted to make it so that only Jedi could turn on a lightsaber, but someone reminded him that Han had used one in ESB and so he dropped that idea.
          That said, Rick McCallum was a big time yes man.

          I’m not sure what you mean by going wrong in telling Anakin’s fall story – if you mean dialogue and execution of some of the scenes, I’d agree. But I also think there were loads of awesome scenes as well, including much of ROTS, the Tusken slaughter, his impatience in dealing with Dooku the first time, and some of the darkness he had in TPM in talking to the Jedi Council, plus meeting Obi-wan, winning the podrace, losing Qui-gon and his uncertain future…

    • DEKKA129

      Well, I think part of the problem is the fact that the Making Of TFA book got canceled. A large part of the story of the TFA production was undoubtedly set to be told in that book, and the fact that it was never published puts a big hole in the TFA story. Had that book come out as planned, I don’t think there would be as much of a tendency to feel that Disney is hiding production details.

      Rogue One, on the other hand, still does have a Making Of… book scheduled for publication in October. I strongly suspect that a lot of the questions fans have about the Rogue One production will probably be addressed in that book (though of course, I have no inside track on what will or won’t be in that book.)

      I still have no idea what happened with the TFA book or why it was canceled. There seemed to be some sort of breakdown in the relationship between Rinzler and LFL, though I have no details on that either. It seems odd to me that they simply chose not to publish the story of the first post-Lucas Star Wars production.

      • Kylo Ryan

        A great point. I forgot to mention the amazing concept art book, which revealed a lot in terms of behind the scenes production.

      • TUD

        I hope that they only cancelled the Making of TFA book because a huge part of TFA’s development was set up for some huge TLJ spoiler.

        • Mr_Crankypants

          Rinzler’s evident frustration with the sudden breakdown in the relationship would seem to suggest otherwise sadly.

    • Uncle Deadly

      We aren’t owned explanations for any of that stuff. What you refer to is different than behind the scenes stuff.

      • Kylo Ryan

        I’m not saying we’re owed anything, I just don’t like that they’re pretending it didn’t happen.

          They’re not pretending anything, but what is there to say about the Harrison Ford injury? How many people really care outside of a few hardcore fans?

          We have the benefit of many, many years of hindsight on the making of the original trilogy…things like just how much Marcia Lucas saved Star Wars in editing were not talked about when it came out either. We had to wait 30+ years to get an official release of the Biggs footage.

          Finally, no film company wants to talk about the things that went wrong on the set. You’ll have to wait for some historian’s retrospective (if they even bother), like The Making of Blade Runner, The Battle of Brazil or Lost in La Mancha.

            I disagree. But to each their own

            Ehhhhh…nope. To make those comparisons work you have to pretend the movie consumption climate was the same in 1977 and the very early ’80s as it is in 2017, hell as it was as soon as home video was an actual thing. Not at all the same thing.

          They are addressing it in the way they see fit. The leg breaking thing has legal stuff to it so that really is none of our business.

  • Kill Kanan, save the show!

    Yeah, and what about a making of doc, casting docs, director’s commentary… all the usual stuff. I’ll wait for the second “collector’s” release of this movie.

    I had a Last Crusade VHS with a commerical for Diet Coke in front of it. LOL. If I recall, it featured Indy’s whip snagging a diet coke in it.

    Because we’re holding out for the 5th special edition box set.
