    Reshoots wouldn't really relate to CGI/FX sorta stuff.

    It doesn't live up to TFA in their eyes. Not happy with the director's artistic expression.

    Here's hoping that this is a positive studio intervention, not a Fantastic 4-style one. Maybe it's the studio kick that George Lucas needed halfway through Phantom Menace, to stop well... all of the... yeah.

    Anyway. Still day one.

    Yeah New York Post isn't the most accurate of sources though this time they did at least get the basis of the story right in which there are reshoots but other places are saying they don't have much to do with what the original article states. They said there was no test screening done so there was no negative feedback from a test screening and what has to be reshot isn't anything major that risks delaying the movie. It seems they are just trying to lighten the tone a bit and a slight possibility of a young Han Solo appearance being added in as a cameo.

    Variety & THR sources are saying the first cut of the film was too serious and the reshoots will add an element of "fun." The film will lead up to about 10 minutes before A New Hope.

    I read some stuff on not reputable sites about Disney execs freaking out over Darth Vader decapitating fools with his light saber. That would be hilarious.

    That's disappointing, but expected. God forbid a war movie have gravitas.

    This is a movie presumably targeted to people of all ages, so I'm not surprised if some execs were like naw, too grimdark. Bring in the wacky droids, bumbling stormtroopers and NOW THIS PODRACING. Except instead of podracing, it's stealing the death star plans.

    Another article on the reshoots. Denies the toning down of the film and said the reshoots were originally planned for spring before they even started filming but were rescheduled for the summer.

    Its a Star Wars movie. Other than maybe Episode 3, none of them have been over the top brutal, and even in 3 the worst we saw (that wasn't implied) was Anakin losing him limbs. No shit they said "This doesn't match the tone of the franchise".

    don't need brutal gore GRIMDARK in my Star Wars movie, So if these reshoots are indeed to make it more in tone with a Star Wars movie, I'm quite good with the reshoots toning it down a little to match what the franchise is about.

    Though based on the varying degrees of sources claiming different reasons for the reshoots, its hard to be sure either way.

    Just about every movie gets Reshoots towards the end of production. Its scheduled and budgeted for in big movies like this.

    Lots of new info today
    Spoiler: show


    Darth Vader will be making an appearance at his peak of awesomeness.

    http://www.ew.com/article/2016/06/22...alflow_twitter

    Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones)- A streetwise delinquent who has been on her own since 15, she has fighting skills and a knowledge of the galactic underworld that the Rebel Alliance desperately needs. “She’s got a checkered past,” says Lucasfilm president and Rogue One producer Kathleen Kennedy. “She has been detained [by the Rebellion] and is being given an opportunity to be useful. And by being useful, it may commute her sentence… She’s a real survivor. She becomes a kind of Joan of Arc in the story.”

    Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna)- Andor is a by-the-book Rebel intelligence officer, brought in to steady the volatile Erso, but he’s no square. He’s committed, steady, and practical, and has seen more than his share of combat. “He conveys a fair amount of experience and the reality of what it’s like to do this every day, to try to figure out how to resist the Empire effectively and intelligently,” says Kiri Hart, Lucasfilm’s chief of story development. “It’s not easy.”

    Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen)- Pronounced chi-RUT, he’s no Jedi, but he’s devoted to their ways and has used his spirituality to overcome his blindness and become a formidable warrior. “Chirrut falls into the category of being a warrior monk,” says Kennedy. “He very much still believes in everything the Jedi were about.” He maintains that belief even though the Jedi are no longer there to protect the galaxy. As director Gareth Edwards puts it: "This idea that magical beings are going to come and save us is going away, and it’s up to normal, everyday people to take a stand to stop evil from dominating the world.”

    Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen)- Heavily armored, Baze prefers a blaster to hokey religions and ancient weapons, but he is devoted to protecting his friend Chirrut at all costs. “He understands Chirrut’s spiritual centeredness, but he doesn’t necessarily support it,” Kennedy says. Baze goes along with this Force business because “it’s what his friend deeply believes,” she adds. Think of them as a little like the galactic version of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza.

    Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed)- Bodhi is this Rebel squad’s lead pilot. He tends to be hot-headed, but any abrasiveness is overshadowed by his skills in the air — and the void of space. “He flies a lot of cargo, one of his key jobs,” Kennedy says. “And he tends to be a little tense, a little volatile, but everybody in the group really relies on his technical skills.”

    K-2SO (Alan Tudyk)- This towering, powerful security droid is described by Edwards as “the antithesis of C-3PO.” In other words, he’s tough, confident, not especially interested in "human/cyborg relations," and the complete opposite of a neurotic fussbudget. “Kaytoo is a little bit like Chewbacca's personality in a droid’s body,” Edwards says. “He doesn’t give a s--- about what you think. He doesn't fully check himself before he says things and does things. He just speaks the truth.” Like Jyn, he’s also seeking a bit of redemption for past wrongs. Droids, too, can have regret.

    Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen)- Jyn’s estranged father is like the galactic version of nuclear pioneer J. Robert Oppenheimer. His doomsday knowledge is sought by both the Empire and the Rebellion. “He’s one of those people that has insight into you know specific aspects of just how the universe works,” says Hart. Where has Galen been, if Jyn has been on her own for years? “The circumstances of how the family got to the state that it’s in is something that we probably don’t want to share right now,” Hart says.

    Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn)- This villain is an ambitious Imperial apparatchik who intends to use his squad of Deathtroopers to pulverize this Rebel uprising and ascend into the Emperor’s graces – while avoiding the wrath of his enforcer, Darth Vader. “The bad guy is a lot more terrifying when he’s really smart, and really effective,” says Knoll. “There is a lot of palace intrigue going on in the Empire, with people conspiring to move up the ranks and sabotaging each other. There’s not a lot of loyalty there.”

    Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker)- This character has a past that Star Wars completists will recognize immediately when they see his name, even if he looks very different than the way they've seen him elsewhere. (He even looks different from when we saw him in the teaser trailer.) http://www.ew.com/article/2016/06/22...aker-character
