    I can imagine LucasFilm showing bits of the deleted stuff during the SW Celebrations, much like they've been doing with the The Clone Wars. However, I agree that a 10th anniversary edition would be the best idea despite I wouldn't want to wait that long.
    The original ending that Edwards filmed before the reshoots is the biggest mystery I'm looking forward the most. Ever since the Jyn vs TIE Fighter contradiction, in which Edwards said it was a placeholder moment meant to be shown only in the trailer, while someone else said it was actually part of the film and the TIE was going to be shot down by a rebel fighter, I don't believe that the so-called original ending was the one where Jyn and Cassian survive in an escape pod. I don't buy it. In one of the making-of videos we can see Cassian presumably dead while Alan Tudyk (in motion capture costume) colapses next to him. It seems they were covering Jyn's entrance to the comm tower but they were ambushed (perhaps by Krennic and his Death Troopers). Unless that was Cassian's fake death scene, it seems unlikely he would have survived that. But who knows...

    If ever there was a SW film that needed an extended version - It's RO!

    Am I going to get in trouble for double posting a year apart...? [face_thinking] This thread needs a bump! I really hope one day we get to see the lost footage for this film.

    Maybe they'll release it for the 10th anniversary or something. Sooner would be better, of course.

    It would be interesting if they had a scene where Bail transmits a holo-message to the Tantive IV bridge, you'd only see the back of Leia as Bail tells her to go to Tatooine to pick up a Jedi that has served him during the Clone Wars. It would make the line about intercepting transmissions actually correct.

    The line is still correct as we can simply assume that such a transmission was sent.

    The line is transmissions, I take that as being plural.

    Yup. So it fits. There’s no plot hole. Move along.

    I am always one to bump threads and not sure why it's so frowned upon? Great topics should go on and on. I look forward to now going home and looking more into the deleted scenes and how the story changed. Wish at least a few were on the Bluray. Thanks Avnor!

    It would probably be better than Jedi Rocks.

    You have to be tone deaf if you think Jedi Rocks isn't a classic, the great Sy Snootles should be in the Music Hall of Fame, she's the Tina Turner of a GFFA.

    Sure, Sy Snootles is great, but she was better when she was an indie puppet. When she sold out to mainstream CGI she lost that special something.

    Not enough Bor Gullet in it, if you ask me.

    Being fed to the sarlacc would be better than Jedi Rocks.

    It doesn't need correcting though. I believe that the Death Star plans were beamed to the Raddus in 4 separate parts because the file was too big to send all in one.

    I still wanna know why the hell Jyn was doing in that corridor with the cool lights in the TIE fighter outfit with the dramatic zoom in on her. I have it on a RO collectible cup! And Krennic walking through the water, he was totally getting his cape like wet and stuff.

    They were posing for publicity stills, obviously. Trying to win hearts and minds. Wars and rebellions aren't just about blasters, you know. :D

    That wasn't a scene that was ever supposed to be in the movie. if I remember it correctly, they were working on the lights in the background, Felicity Jones was walking around, someone called her name and she turned around, in sync with the lights behind her. Edwards saw that, loved the idea, and decided to shoot it with her in full costume. Marketing then proceeded to use it because they thought it looked cool.

    Edwards had this way of spending some time every day shooting stuff that came up spontaneously, outside of the shooting script. Some of that would actually make it into the movie, most of it wouldn't.

    "Inefficient and on-a-whim-pointless" is probably the word you're looking for there. :p

    I dig Edwards a lot, and love R1 a bunch, but yeah, clearly his whole operating procedure was a bit of a sticking point in putting something out there. Needed a fresh set of eyes and some adult supervision.
