Star Wars Rogue One Lead Discusses Reshoots, Was Reportedly Paid Seven Figures

This time around we get a six minute clip entitled "Betrayed".

Reshoots are common. Most cinephiles know that. Pre-order your copy over at SWTOR right now! That she wanted to embody Jyn Erso in every way proves just how powerful an actress she is, and I'm more than a little excited to see Rogue One as soon as it comes out.

If the speculations are correct, then, it's just a matter of time before hardcore "Star Wars" gamers can be entertained by the said DLC, which will feature "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" characters Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and Imperial Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) as playable characters. The actress plays down the significance of reshoots on what has been called an experimental Star Wars film, simply because it's the first live-action Star Wars movie that's ever been done outside of the primary saga narrative. Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel are producing, with John Knoll and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers.

Kennedy began by saying every major blockbuster goes through numerous reshoots, the only reason these were picked up on in particular was "because it's Star Wars, and they put a spotlight and scrutinise every single thing that gets done". "So why has it turned into a big story?". This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves. That, and the fact that they were "always planned and nothing unusual".

Jones and Kennedy's words back up what director Gareth Edwards told Entertainment Weekly over the summer.

Meanwhile, other sources claim that it is unlikely for "Scarif" to arrive in December as, allegedly, EA will release the DLC after "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" has been pulled out from theaters. Disney CEO Bob Iger told THR earlier this year that Rogue One is an "experiment of sorts", while he said on an earnings call that it's not expected to make as much money as The Force Awakens.
