Now that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is finally here, and another box office hit for Disney and LucasFilm, fans have already started analyzing every bit of footage they can. We have already offered deep dives on the cameos and Easter Eggs, along with a report that the movie contains unused footage from A New Hope, from nearly 40 years ago.
