    I've got no idea. It could literally be anything. I don't think we know at what point in production Lucas came to visit. If it was early enough they could have retooled things to fit it in. For example, maybe the tank trooper was originally a design for the scarf troopers and after George keyed in on it they made up the tank for it (or maybe the tank was there but it was just going to be a regular trooper). If it was later in production I'd assume its just going to be one of the people in the crowd scenes.

    LOL, at this thread, am I going to be the only one posting?:p

    the Obi Wan part is about Edwards saying that he has a desire for a Kenobi movie but he has no inside info on such a project.

    So..... we might see a younger Chirrut in a Gareth-directed Obi-Wan film (unless Donnie plays a different character..... Chirrut's older brother, pehaps?)

    Yes, I read that too. The tank trooper is one of the best designs.

    Makes sense. It is the most PT-looking design we've seen for R1!

    I'm so happy he is out talking to everyone.
    Way back at Celebration Kathleen Kennedy was doing all the talking. Gareth definitely wasn't being the JJ Abrams salesman.

    But he's hugely likeable when he gets going.

    Edwards remembers a pivotal meeting early in the development of Rogue One. "We made a big assumption at the very beginning," says Edwards. "And Kathy, I remember in one meeting, turned around and went, 'Well, why are you assuming that? We can do what we want.' It changed the direction of the film. Our film is not your average blockbuster. It takes a few more risks. Kathy was very supportive of that and defended it to everybody."

    He may have needed some help near the end of the process (from both Tony and John Gilroy), and that most likely tightened up the film, but I believe it was Edwards' vision that really made this the potential classic that it is. I think he really understands Star Wars on a fundamental level.
