    Agreed. While I've always enjoyed the Biggs and Co deleted scenes, and sometimes wish they'd be reintegrated somehow in a future edition of ANH, from a story standpoint it doesn't make too much, for the reason you just outlined. This was probably a reason why the scenes were cut, in addition to them slowing down the pace of the film.

    I think Biggs and Luke meeting on Tatooine may still be partially canon but it would have happened some time prior happenings of ANH not during it. Making it easier for Biggs to get to Yavin and do some rebel stuff while Luke is left behind and he wants to get in the academy too and defect and have some rebel adventures with Biggs:cool:

    I think it's when the Radio guy runs up to Mon Mothma you can see him, again that's second hand, I haven't seen him either!

    I think I heard the Wilhelm scream on Eadu as Jyn pushes the Stormtrooper over the ledge. Can anyone confirm this?

    It was a scream, I'm not sure it was THE scream. If it was, it was toned down from the usual. Maybe because the trooper uttered it when he was further down. He didn't scream right away, he fell a bit first.

    The tall salamander/camel can supposedly be seen in the background as Jyn and Cassian first enter the city on Jedha. (My apologies to the poster here who pointed that out.) Something I need to watch for on future viewings.

    I can't believe this one hasn't been mentioned yet! When Vader chokes Krennic the sound that is used is the same force coke sound from TCW!

    For what it's worth, Rogue One is now the second (including TFA) movie to show blue lasers since the prequels. So another nod to their legacy I guess.

    Cassian and Jyn shut up K before he could finish the sentence. :)

    I loved all the little continuity references-the Ghost in the Rebel fleet, the faces of the red and gold leaders from ANH, etc. Also, Did I hear correctly? As Jyn was about to meet up with Cassian and the group he got together on Yavin Base, did I hear the overhead comm say "General Syndullah, please report to the command center!?!?" I swear that's what I heard. I suppose it could have been "General Dodonna," but it was definitely one of the two!

    I liked Bail Organa's little reference to Mon Mothma about going to get Obi-Wan Kenobi. (LOL when he said "I must return to Alderaan," I shouted "NOOOO!!! Don't do it! Stay there!" And several of the audience laughed...

    There were some nods I felt were unnecessary, like the blue-milk, and especially Dr. Evezan and Ponda Baba. IMO we could've done without that.

    Yes, Biggs was even in deleted scenes on Tatooine with Luke after Luke supposedly saw the Tantive IV being attacked in orbit.

    Biggs should therefore not be in the battle of Scarif, but does join the Rebellion before Luke gets to Yavin 4.

    Just FYI - Red 2 is Wedge, Red 3 is Biggs.

    As for Toshe Station, I think it is canon even though we don't see it, it's still in the novel, and most of that which wasn't since retconned is considered canon, is it not?

    I think I found the Wilhelm scream.

    It was on Eadu when a X-wing crashed into the turbolaser. It cut to the gunners in the turbolaser and the scream was there. It was very short. Probably cut down like K2SO's "I've got a bad feeling about..."

    Kind of like an "Ahhh," instead of the "Ahhh-AHHH-ahh."

    -------

    And Saw says "It's a trap." During the conversation with Jyn.

    Was I only one who noticed that they made Ponda Baba's head really oversized? Seriously it was weird it looked like a strange cosplay costume. It was a fun bit even taking out how they got off of Jedha so fast and to Tatooine but that inconsistency with Baba's costume did sort of take me back more then their cameo.
