    I like the ending we got much better. It's much more powerful.

    Well, not surprise to know that they would survive, i am crazy now to see a alternative version of the movie in the future.

    Plus, I think it makes more sense for them to be dead by the time of ANH.

    Keep in mind that the ending where they survive was never filmed.

    Or maybe it was, but it was destroyed by the Death Star when it attacked Scarif. :p

    I think the ending we got was more powerful and the right way to go, but anyone who survived RO could have been off doing other things during the OT.

    Had they survived, I have no doubt that the Alliance would have brought them back for the important missions in Return of the Jedi. Why risk Luke or Leia in rescuing Solo when both Jyn and Cassian have experience in infiltration and extraction? Given Jyn's prior criminal activity, she might even have contacts in the Tatooine underworld that would help with their infiltration. I think a more plausible alternative was that they were captured for interrogation, and remained imprisoned through the O.T.

    The only thing in the alternate ending I liked was the fact that the plans were transmitted to the Tantive IV, tying in nicely with Vader's accustation (in an early draft of A New Hope) that "transmissions were beamed to this ship by spies, who are now unfortunately dead." Leia's ship was not tethered to the Profundity but lurking in the edge of the system.

    Random thought, but the new visual dictionaries are canon, right? I just read through the one for Rogue One, and it uses a lot of Legends materials, names and classifications, including mentioning the ANH temples as belonging to the Massassi civilization, the Z-95 and the designation between the Imperial-I and Imperial-II class Star Destroyers, which I believed had been an EU-only until now.

    Pablo and the Story Group seem to be using the EU reboot to follow the template of TCW: integrate the material from Legends into the larger fabric wherever appropriate.

    Now they are back in canon since mentioned in the official Visual Dictionary. Everything mentioned in the new books is canon.

    Seems like every story decision made was a solid one. Jyn and Cassian surviving, and Jyn's mom being a Jedi, would have both led to a weaker film with a much more limp thematic resonance.

    Jyn's mom being a Jedi... and then running out to histrionically commit suicide... would have been an atrocity. "That boy is our last hope" "No. There is another". "No, there was another but she unreasonably ran out in front of some blaster fire". "That boy is our last hope".
