Rogue One: A Star Wars Story producer Kathleen Kennedy and director Gareth Edwards have addressed the reshoots that recently sent Star Wars fans into a frenzy of speculation.
A number of disparate rumors sprung up over the four weeks worth of reshoots, first reported in May. The original report claimed Disney was "not satisfied" and "in a panic over" Edwards' first cut, while later rumors claimed that the reshoots were to "lighten up" the tone of the film to match J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII.
Speaking to EW, both Kennedy and Edwards set out to quash these rumors.
“I mean it was always part of the plan to do reshoots", said Edwards. "We always knew we were coming back somewhere to do stuff. We just didn’t know what it would be until we started sculpting the film in the edit."
As for what was actually being reshot, Edwards and Kennedy played down the drama, claiming the story was not being changed in any way.
“There’s lots of little things that we have to get, but it’s all little things within the preexisting footage,” Edwards said.
“Obviously, you’ve got to work around everyone’s schedule, and everyone’s on different films all over the world, and so it’s a bit of a logistical nightmare. That’s why I think it’s been blown out of proportion a little bit.”
“There’s nothing about the story that’s changing, with a few things that we’re picking up in additional photography,” added Kennedy. “I think that’s the most important thing, to reassure fans that it’s the movie we intended to make.”
As for the tone, Edwards said that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be "dark" as he always intended.
“I’d definitely describe it as: It’s got dark tone,” he said. “The studio has been very supportive of that. I mean, the sort of tone we were going for when we started was the tone you have in films like The Empire Strikes Back. And that’s not in any way been compromised.”
Kennedy added that Edwards' signature "handscrabble" style will be very present in the movie.
“He does a lot of handheld, intimate, close-up work. That’s not something you’ve necessarily seen in a Star Wars movie before,” she said. “And we brought in [cinematographer] Greig Fraser, to shoot it, who had done Zero Dark Thirty. So a combination of Greig and Gareth has been, I think, fantastic, and it just gives it a really unique style.”
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first stand-alone film in the official Star Wars universe. It's due to hit theaters December 16, 2016.
