    This shot from that link was definitely in the film, so I guess there were some shots of stormtroopers in the water too. (In the cliffnotes thread, I said I couldn't remember them being in it)

    On the official posters there are many stormtrooper walking in knee high water. Was that ever seen?

    I was actually hoping that they will not kiss.. holding their hands in final moment was the best option.. kiss would be too cheesy..

    (Not to diss AOTC) but it seems they are afraid of romance in the galaxy far far away now after some of the backlash. None in TFA and none in RO. Oh well!

    Yep, I agree.. I mean I like prequels and it wasn't bothering me that much but here it will feel out of place for me..

    And back on the subject, I am now catching up on all the tv spots and it is so weird that few days before the actual release date they still use scenes that doesn't exist in the movie - running with DS plans on Scarif for example... I mean I'm fine with that in the teaser that was released 8 months earlier, but now? After the final edit etc? That is a bit messy...

    Agreed... I became (and so did a lot of you guys also I assume) attached to certain scenes from the trailers only to find not only were they not there BUT they were completely different scenarios altogether [face_dunno]

    I wonder if they could go the "Lord of the Rings" scenario with an extended cut...? But even then, the way some of the scenes play out I can't even fit them into the current film because it has changed so much. Eg - Cassian and Jyn running along the beach with the stolen tape...how would that work?? And it always appeared as if Krennic arrived after the battle (The scene where he is walking through the water with white cape dragging that was cut)

    Oh well... Great film anyway!!

    Exactly.. I think we will never see it as an official deleted scene etc..It looks like they really have different ending in mind.. maybe in next 10 years at one of the Celebrations they will reveal some information what and why was actually changed..

    I don't think we'll ever see an "extended cut" (directors cut or any other cut for that matter). I just don't know if you do those for SW. The precident was set by one guy who either got everything he wanted or went back until he got what he wanted. Maybe you could call that an extended cut?

    I think the other side of it is "extended cuts" carry a certain perception that disney LFL in general want to avoid. Maybe a couple years down the road they do revisit it as a "special edition," but I really don't think we see it any extended cut.
    Who knows. With Edwards talking about it a bit more now, I think we might actually hear the story at some point.

    I also think its going to be a lot closer to the original narrative than they really want to admit and part of the problem might have been that they didn't really have another ending in mind. Sounds like Edwards just shot a loooooot of stuff that didn't necessarily go A-->B-->C. It just went (and went and went), so you've got all these great toy box shots that were good enough to send through ILM and all this other stuff, but when it came time to actually put them in a movie you had 20 shots to go between A and C but all you need is B.

    I honestly think the "Vader massacre" was something tacked on and that it was him originally confronting Jyn in the tie fighter at the top of that tower :cool:

    My guess is that they reconfigured the set-up. At the start, I bet it went from Lah'mu to to Prison break to Yavin where Jyn and us meet Cassian for the first time. I think they reworked a much simpler "we intercepted a transmission from your father" to all the convolution with Bodhi and Galen. That's why it was so choppy in the first act imo.

    0:29 - One of Jyn's most striking phrases during the spreading - "This is a rebellion, is not it? I rebel "- was cut from the film.
    0:50 - The "Yes, sir" character's irony has also been cut.
    1:02 - In the film, the young Saw Gerrera appears only in two brief moments, making this one more scene deleted.
    1:03 to 01:15 - Saw Gerrera's speech was eliminated - "What will you do when they capture you? What will you do when you're tortured? If you continue to fight, what will you become? "
    1:12 - Director Orson Krennic's walk through the post-battle waters of Scarif was also cut off.
    1:19 - At no point in the movie Jyn and Cassian participate in the direct confrontation in Scarif.

    Hey man - Good call on some of my concerns! I honestly don't think I even saw Biggs or Porkins - But was ABSOLUTELY stoked to see Red Leader and Gold Leader :cool:

    Since you have a great grasp on this film would you be able to explain to a poor soul (me) who was there with 10 mates going nuts - Who was the guy that Cassian shot in the back and why??

    The latest official trailer, released in October, is the only one that actually features scenes that ended in theaters, revealing the time it took to "set the tone" for the film.

    I agree with a few points here.

    I think they reworked a lot of the Jyn story as she came accross too arrogant in the trailers. At no point in the trailers did I feel empathy for her, yet you very much do in the end scene.

    I also agree the Vader massacre was a reshoot, i'd be surprised to learn it wasn't. I wonder if originally Vader was just a background cameo with a few lines and the powers that be got wind of people expecting Vader on the battlefield and got scared of limited Vader time.

    The film went through pretty extensive reshots. I felt it showed in the finished product. It certainly shows when you go back to these trailers and see how much is missing from the movie.

    I think you could play that game all day with every scene and still only get to half the truth.

    Until/if we ever get anything on what could have been anything else is a complete guess.

    In Chirrut's first fight scene, there's a crashed X Wing in the background. That must have been significant at one time. I feel like it must have been part of the story.

    I would pay if Disney releases an alternative version of Rogue One, just for curiosity.

    It seems that nothing really major changed, but a lot of small details like character introductions, some action scenes, and so on.

    Regarding the plot I think that the major change was that instead of intercepting a transmission of the Death Star first test, they had the pilot being the messenger.
