George Lucas has seen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and “really liked the movie”

15 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re less than a fortnight away from the next instalment of the Star Wars saga, and it seems that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story already has its first positive review – from Star Wars creator George Lucas, no less!

Speaking during a Lucasfilm press conference for the movie, director Gareth Edwards revealed that Lucas say the movie “two days ago” and that “I can die happy now. He really liked the movie. It was the most important review to me.”

Now of course, we probably shouldn’t expect Lucas to come out at this point and say he hates the movie, but he did criticise Star Wars: The Force Awakens for its “retro” tone – although that might have been because Disney and Lucasfilm earlier rejected his own ideas for the Sequel Trilogy.

A Familiar Face From The Prequels Returns In Latest Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Clip

3 December 2016 5:06 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last night, a select handful of journalists were treated to 28 minutes of footage from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It's since been described by one lucky viewer as, "Extremely detailed and well-realized. It's shot and styled different but everything Og Star Wars fans will Love." Needless to say, that gives us good reason to be extremely excited, as does the latest clip from the highly anticipated release. The biggest talking point here is the fact that we get to see the return of Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith's Jimmy Smits as Bail Organa, though he isn't given the opportunity to actually talk! The cast of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story includes Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, and a number of others, and it's currently set to be released on December 16th, later this year. »

Alan Tudyk talks Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s K-2So, hopeful for future appearances

1 December 2016 12:32 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the biggest standouts from the marketing for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has been K-2So, voiced by Firefly alum Alan Tudyk. The tall, intimidating Imperial-turned-Rebel security droid has a lot to live up to considering the tremendous popularity of past Star Wars characters like C-3Po, R2-D2 and Bb-8, but has already become one of the upcoming film’s most intriguing characters.

In a new interview with THR, Tudyk talks a bit about playing the character, whether or not he felt any pressure to make his droid distinctive, and if we’ll see K-2So again, despite the fact that Rogue One won’t have a sequel.

Tudyk didn’t just voice K-2So, but was actually present during the filming and played the character via motion capture. He feels that this gave him an edge performance wise, and meant that he’d avoid becoming the »

‘Rogue One’ Won’t Screen in Time for Critics’ Awards: Is There Something Wrong With This Picture?

30 November 2016 12:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

I am not a “Star Wars” person. Which doesn’t mean that I don’t like “Star Wars.” I saw the original movie (one that I refuse, now and forever, to call “Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope”) on the day it opened in 1977, and I thought it was enthralling. Three years later, I saw “The Empire Strikes Back” on the day it opened, and I found it even more enthralling. (By the time I saw “Return of the Jedi,” I was a professional critic and watched it at a preview, and…well, we all know how well that movie worked out on the enthrallment scale. Not so much.)

I’ve seen “Star Wars” and “The Empire Strikes Back” four or five times apiece since then, and have continued to relish them, but the whole fan-geek metasphere of “Star Wars” means nothing to me. I have never been obsessed with its universe, »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story reshoots changed the ending of the movie

30 November 2016 7:16 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this year it was revealed that Gareth Edward’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was getting major reshoots in order to ‘fix’ the movie. While many downplayed these reshoots (after all every major production has them), a new report from THR is claiming new screenwriter Dan Gilroy is set to make millions of dollars from them.

The site’s sources are telling them that Gilroy was brought in just to do some dialogue tweaks for $200k a week, but this has since grown to a net total of $5 million after he also stepped in to oversee the edit. According to THR’s sources, the reshoots “tackled several issues in the film, including the ending”.

A trailer released after the reshoots showed just how much influence Gilroy had on the film in the credits.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story won’t have a sequel

30 November 2016 12:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the high likelihood of Disney and Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars Anthology film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, becoming a huge hit when it flies into theaters next month, no matter what kind of box office numbers it produces, the film certainly won’t be getting a sequel.

That’s right, according to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, visual effects supervisor John Knoll and director Gareth Edwards in an interview with Empire Magazine (courtesy of Slash Film), Rogue Two, as Kennedy jokingly called it, will never happen.

Knoll, who originally conceived the idea for the movie, said that Rogue One was always supposed to be a self-contained entry in the Star Wars universe. Edwards even added that if there were to be a sequel it would “be directed by George Lucas,” referring to Lucas’ Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, which Rogue One almost directly precedes in the timeline of galactic history. »

Where Does Rogue One's Running Time Rank Amongst All Of The Star Wars Films?

28 November 2016 7:55 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Now that tickets for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story are officially on sale and the film is listed on sites like Fandango and Atom Tickets, we now know what the film's running time will be. The standalone film, set in the Star Wars universe, which takes place before the events that transpired in A New Hope, will clock in at two hours and thirteen minutes. That actually ties it with one of the earlier films in the series, but where does it rank amongst all of the eight feature films set in that galaxy far, far away?

Here's where Rogue One ranks:
