Thanks for all the comments so far…it’s nice to get this feedback and even see a little debate over the changes made 😃
I didn’t intend for this edit to “replace” Rogue One, unlike the intention for my Hobbit edit. The Battle of Scarif is for people who A) just want to get to the action, and/or B) want to see a few classic Star Wars elements inserted into the film (the crawl, John Williams, etc).
For what it’s worth, I did not find myself drawn to any of the characters in Rogue One. K2SO is fun and interesting, but even he just felt like a watered-down version of HK47 from Knights of the Old Republic. So while I do agree that this edit stunts the arcs of all the characters, from a plot perspective we don’t miss that much at all.
Stay tuned for a (more likely than not) 2.0 version of this edit!
