    It's very cool, but the hard work of making this a seamless edit really goes to Edwards and his crew for making RO fit into ANH so well... as a video made by a fan, their job was easy. Also, this is only technically OK to post today since the digital version became available today. ;)

    Surely he means Lucasfilm here, rather than Lucas himself? :confused:

    I don't think it has an ending. It was just a cool visual for the promotional material.

    And Rogue One just received a Hugo nomination. It will be tough beating critical darling Arrival, though. The award will be handed out at the 75th World Science Fiction Convention on August 11.

    I thought I was going to love Arrival. And frankly, I found it shallow and trite compared to Rogue One. I think the latter will go down in film history as critically very underrated.

    The Special features were on the light side, no deleted scenes and along with the featurettes would have been nice for a really long documentary ...

    I'm sure I read someone say it was a similar scene to how the X Wing swooped in to destroy the AT-ACT as it was about to fire on the rebels and thats why they cut it.

    Here's a great interview with Gary Whitta (note: very minor NSFW language) primarily regarding Rogue One. The R1 talk starts about 10 minutes in and concludes at about the 50 minute mark.

    Highlights:
    • Whitta created Galen Erso and his attempt to sabotage the Death Star. It was a thematic echo of Darth Vader in the OT--a child helping to redeem the father
    • Knoll had K-2SO as simply a black protocol droid; Whitta made K-2SO a reprogrammed Imperial droid that was owned by Jyn; Weitz gave K-2SO to Cassian instead, and Gilroy wrote many of his best lines
    • Bodhi, Chirrut and Baze were all developed by Weitz
    • The opening with Krennic seeking out Galen dates back to Whitta
    • Whitta wrote Red and Gold Leaders into his draft expecting perhaps doubles to be used
