Reshoots have become quite commonplace among big budget movies lately, with most productions building these additional days of principal photography into the schedule before filming even starts. The box office blockbuster Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is no different, and while rumors persisted that the ending was changed considerably, LucasFilm's Pablo Hidalgo revealed in December that the ending always remained the same.

Great Job, Internet!: Darth Vader’s castle in Rogue One has a surprisingly badass backstory

3 January 2017 12:00 PM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

One thing Rogue One had in spades was great design. The Force Awakens, too, embraced the dusty, chunky aesthetic of the original trilogy, and particularly its concept artists Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston, but Rogue One went a lot further. Pretty much every scene of the movie introduced some new weathered piece of gear or lived-in nook. It’s an overall earthier movie than any of its predecessors.

One of the most striking images was Darth Vader’s castle, a grand, arcing thing set on a burbling, lava-filled hellscape. It looked more like something from Lord Of The Rings than A New Hope, but it was presented confidently enough to blend right in. Apparently, it was based on designs McQuarrie himself had tinkered with, and it has a surprisingly radical backstory.
