During the brief cameo for C-3PO and R2-D2, change R2’s red/blue indicator light to match its depiction in ANH, which is different from all other cinematic appearances.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Revising Rogue One’ - by Nando v Movies:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Syx3CBenkz0
 

^ an intriguing video with the idea of 3 suggested cuts to the movie to try and increase the early pacing of the film. It’s a shame they are with Bodhi Rook (played by the talented Riz Ahmed) - yet may make for a impacting introduction for the character, and his place in the mission…

(to bring some mystery and tension with the character - all we know that an Imperial Pilot has defected with some information from Jyn’s father about a new Imperial super weapon… becoming a mystery, can he be trusted? a hero or mole? a traitor or someone trying to do the right thing / makes things right…)
 

Also with the proposal to cut Vader from the film until the end corridor scene - and why.

Funny that you shared this!

The day he posted that video I was thinking about revisiting Rogue One, since I have a little more time on my hands now.

I’m going to implement Nando’s ideas, and also share some others that I’ve had since I’ve last worked on it. I’ll be sharing that soon!

I posted these videos on RogueOne’s thread, for the sake of the current conversation regarding Nando v Movies, here are some initial attempts to remove Vader and mentions of him until the corridor scene:

Removal of Mustafar Scene - https://vimeo.com/344198122

Removal of Tarkin mentioning Vader’s role of attacking the fleet - https://vimeo.com/344199092

Removal of Vader on the bridge of the star destroyer & his command of a boarding party - https://vimeo.com/344324725

Please note I have noticed a small sound glitch that lasts a split second on these videos which has been address after uploading these clips.

I was poking around the movie and it looks like I’ve missed at least one other mention of Vader. This occurs during the first bit of the Rebel ground attack. The scene in question is dialogue between Tarkin’s “right hand man” and himself. The guy talks about the rebel attack on Scarif. Then Tarkin asks about Scarif and the Death Star Plans … which are confirmed … which then Tarkin directs the Death Star to go to Scarif AND inform Lord Vader. This will be a bit of a toughy since he says “and inform Lord Vader” very quickly …

I can play around with it, but the question is it ok to leave in? This is a such a short line that does not indicate that Vader will intervene as said and shown later in the film since I’ve removed Tarkin’s later line about Vader’s role on attacking the fleet as well as remove Vader’s appearance later as well.

UPDATE:

Here is a quick edit that cuts out his line after the “they are” line. https://vimeo.com/344421737

This does take away what his orders on going to Scarif, but it also makes it a “surprise” to see the Death Star later appear toward the end of the battle.

Somewhat inspired by the colours of 4K77. An attempt to bring Rogue One closer to home to it’s predecessor.

(Original for comparison)

Working on many edits, may take many years to complete…
