From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure.

To play the 7-foot-tall and very snarky Kaytoo, Tudyk would don 13-inch stilts while filming scenes for the movie, which centers on the robot and his Rebel buddies such as Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) stealing the plans for the Empire's super-weapon, the Death Star.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is coming to Digital HD on March 24th, so Coming Soon had a Star Wars-related chat with Gary Whitta, who co-wrote the story upon which Rogue One was based. "There were a lot of casualties on both sides, in both versions of the scripts".

Entertainment Weekly has many more details at the link, and it's definitely worth a read.

Philadelphia's biggest Cinco de Mayo celebration canceled over immigration concerns
Mayor Jim Kenney (D) is "devastated" that ICE has impacted his city. "ICE's enforcement actions are targeted and lead driven". Almost 250 people across Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia were reportedly arrested by ICE last week.

But then we discover that Jyn and Cassian were able to get away in an escape pod just before Vader destroyed the ship they were on. They finally went off and fought for it. The writers originally came up with an alternate ending where Jyn and Cassian escaped! In the final film, Jyn and Cassian barely see an action on the beach. But they assumed that the Disney machine wouldn't allow that, what with its desire for unending sequels and the hope that children don't leave the theater fully traumatized. "The ship-to-ship data transfer happened off Scarif". But don't get too freaked out just yet, he's talking about films that'll be made in 10 or 20 years, which still leaves plenty of time for all of our favorite old-school characters to show up in numerous films. "The pod looked like just another piece of debris ..." But as revealed in the above exclusive behind-the-scenes clip, there were some scenes too awkward or risky for Tudyk to film while on stilts. "And everything I saw, I got really jealous about it".

Also, this gives you a great excuse to re-watch Vader skillfully slaughter a corridor of quickly-unharmed rebels. It was all to do with compression.

However, there were many things that changed between Gary Whitta's first draft and Chris Weitz's revisions. Remember, Rogue One was only the second movie made since Disney purchased Lucasfilm, and no one expected it to go that dark...not even the screenwriter! For now, we'll make due with the fact that Edwards, Whitta, and everyone at Lucasfilm put the right ending over the safe ending.
