New ‘Rogue One’ Featurette Reveals Even More Scenes That Weren’t in the Film

Subscribe to WTUG.com on

Between the trailers, teasers and TV spots for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we found more than enough scenes (18, to be exact) that didn’t appear in the film when it hit theaters last weekend — clearly due to all those highly-publicized reshoots in post-production. Weirdly enough, Lucasfilm has released a new Rogue One featurette that reveals even more scenes that didn’t make the final cut, including what appears to be an entire sequence filmed in Jordan.

We took some screenshots from the video above, in which director Gareth Edwards and the cast offer a tour of the locations where Rogue One was filmed — and they’re really stunning. Especially Jordan, which apparently had a desert scene with characters dressed in red garb strangely (and kind of awesomely) reminiscent of the surgical costumes in David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers. Probably about half of the scenes in the video didn’t appear in the finished film, including another shot of Felicity Jones & Co. running across the beach on the Empire’s version of Sandals resort.

It’s unlikely that Disney and Lucasfilm will end up releasing most of these deleted scenes on the Blu-ray, and we’re certainly never going to see Edwards’ original director’s cut of the film — which, according to Edwards himself, featured a completely different (and much happier, ahem) ending. But as he tells it, the original ending was the result of hesitation on his part; Edwards was understandably hesitant to take too many bold risks because he assumed Lucasfilm wouldn’t approve.

Either way, there are probably enough of these scenes floating around online to stitch together the inevitable fan edit.
