Rogue One - Extra Extended Edition

Mission: to add every deleted/additional/alternate shot/scene/take to the film, avoiding (where possible) to cut anything.

Movie sources:

  • BD or UHD-BD (when released)

Deleted/extended/alternate shots/scenes sources:

  • BD or UHD-BD (IF they will be released)
  • trailers
  • featurettes
  • making-of
  • documentaries
  • TV special
  • commercials
    etc.

Changes (provisional list):

  • flip the last Jedi statue shot, just before Wobani (if not fixed in the released BD/UHDBD)
  • add a classic crawl
  • add part of the Anaheim trailer at the beginning
  • add missing shots from “canon” sources
  • add missing shots from other sources, when “compatible”
  • use alternate takes when available

To-do list:

  • find further material
  • find better quality versions for the available ones
  • find the better crawl to use, or someone who would like to make one

I’m still collecting the available extra footage (I’m almost at 100 pieces, including trailers (most part), featurettes, commercials etc.; surely many more will show up during the next months, so of course this will be a “work in progress” at least until the official release of the BD (or UHD-BD) - hoping it will have deleted and/or extended scenes.

For the moment, I started to work using the workprint to place the deleted/alternate shots, so when the BD will come, the work will be almost complete at that moment (probably).

Any help, feedback, critic is welcome!

Random thoughts, facts and factoids about Rogue One (I’ll append new ones at the end every time I find something interesting):

  • A teaser trailer of Star Wars Rogue One was shown off at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California, in 2015. It showed a TIE fighter flying above a forest planet and then revealed the Death Star. There is a voice over from Obi-Wan Kenobi that says: “For more than a thousand generations the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times. Before the Empire.”; there is only a bootleg version around, very bad quality, taken probably with a phone camera; I guess if there is a proper one somewhere…
  • According to a post found in a french forum, there are at least 30 minutes of Darth Vader deleted scenes.
  • It seems there is so many unused footage filmed and unused for the final movie, that is possible to make another one!
  • There is an after credit shot on youtube; a mouse-droid-visual of a corridor, and a lightsaber; according to many, it is just a fake.
  • Many shots in the various trailers, apart obvious ones not in the movie, are just different takes, some really slight; others are reversed.
  • List of available movie clips:
    Call Sign (00:31) - 1080p 29.97fps
    Come Back (00:23) - 1080p 29.97fps
    Chance of Failure (00:40) - 1080p 23.976fps high bitrate
    Jyn is Rescued (00:48) - 1080p 23.976fps high bitrate
    Jyn Rallies The Rebel Alliance (00:21) - 1080p 23.976fps high bitrate
    Trust Goes Both Ways (00:48) - 1080p 23.976fps high bitrate
    Jyn, Cassian and K-2SO in Jedha City (00:40) - 720p 59.94fps (from a show)
    Jyn, Cassian and K-2SO in Jedha desert (00:18) - 1080p 29.97fps (bits & pieces, no usable audio, from SW Celebration 2016)
    for a total of about four and half minutes.

I’d love for an Extended Edition of Rogue One to happen as I feel the characters could have been fleshed out more among other things.

"Moving on to a better day, searching for a brighter shade of gray...."

I’m actually hoping for an actual official extended edition. Since it’s a non saga film it may have a chance. Especially with Disney helming.

Some people call them Force Ghosts. I call them Midichlorian Swarms.

I wrote a poem, then connection timed out and puff! everything lost…

Long story short:
PM sent to Jack, thanks for the tip!
Working on a fresh project will help with the others (a lot)
Should find the best way to pick up the shots not in the movie but elsewhere; ideas?

benduwan: danke, nicht Deutsch… 😦

I scrolled down, yes, but it “seems” I have all of them.

UPDATE

  • Found some high bitrate versions of trailers I had before; so now I got them in better quality! If you know of some 1080p high bitrate clip, please let me know!
  • For testing purposes, I put back three original shots in the workprint; they stick out like a sore thumb (of course) but it helped me to find a simple way to include them in the main movie, waiting to replace the ugly workprint with a proper BD/UHDBD source.
  • Still watching and rewatching the trailers, and every time I find a new shot that I had not noticed before - sometimes just few frames long; it will be a looong project, I suspect! 😉

I tried to create a list of a possible alternate first act. It is worth reading the whole thread Rogue Zero.

http://originaltrilogy.com/post/id/1022955

The first Act is probably about 50% - 70% re-shoot and the Planet Wobani was added very Late in editing.

It would seem that Wobani was originally on Jedha and the shot of K2-SO saying “The Captain say’s you are a friend I will not kill you” go together in an edit Bin that was scrapped.

Jyn aboard the transport being rescued was resurrected from the cut’s and Wobani was created in place of an old version of Jedha and Jyn being rescued there.

That is all we can figure out at the momment until more information becomes available. It is still guesswork at the moment but educated guesswork.

Moved links to post #1; added available movie clip list to post #2.

Sidenote: if the available movie clips are reflecting the final color grading that will be present on future BD (UHDBD/DVD) releases (very likely, indeed), then I must say that it is probably not the same seen in theaters…

Left, movie clip untouched; right, regraded using workprint as reference:

Now, it is always possible that the workprint has wrong colors, but I do seem to remember they are quite the same seen on the big screen, and you?

Must add that I accidentaly forgot to remove the saturation increase I used during one of the tests (simply forgot to add a # to the script), so the regraded version is obviously over saturated… I can fix it and post new comparisons, if someone thinks it could be an interesting topic.

Count me in! 😃 Would like to see comparisons with updated settings.

i was going to say, there is no way that right side is right. the left side looks like what i recall from the theater.
