Star Trek Beyond got a bit of FUD online over reshoots, but the issue there seemed to be merely the need to add some plot exposition, not rework the film as a whole.

Every movie these days gets all of this attention over reshoots. Suicide Squad, Rogue One, and Star Trek Beyond all have stupid rumors floating around that all people actually involved in the films are denying. Reshoots happen with the vast majority of films, it almost never has anything to do with script changes unless the studio intervenes with the production. People need to stop believing all of the clickbait crap that people post. And on the topic of Rogue One rumors specifically, here’s what the screenwriter has to say about it: https://twitter.com/chrismcquarrie/status/738536269928669184

Is there any official official statement from the crew about the reshoots? What are the reshoots going to do?

~The original trilogy is my life… kind of~

Why should there be?

What are the reshoots going to do?

Reshoot the scenes which are not considered good enough and shoot new scenes which they found out they will need during the editing of the movie.

Seriously people, reshoots are a normal part of post-production of basically every movie.

I never gave the hullabaloo about the reshoots any credence but it is odd Marvel cancelled their tie-in comic to the film suddenly, without warning. Everyone who preordered was given a full refund.

Comics get cancelled or rescheduled all the time though. They may simply want it to come out later so as to not spoil the movie.

Wait a minute…so one of the comments by the execs was that it didnt feel like Star Wars; that it felt like…a war movie.

Everyone in the galaxy knew this was the plan except this one guy.

What a disaster. Next you’ll be telling me that the wars will be in the stars!

That would defeat its purpose. It was supposed to lead right into the start of the film.

I too highly doubt the production is in trouble. But I would be disappointed if the reason for the reshoots is to make it less of a “gritty” war movie and add more of the Star Wars “magic” of the episodic films. It would be interesting to experience a film of a different tone in the SW universe, and what better way to explore that than through a tangential plot line that’s not essential to the saga. It would be a shame if they passed on that opportunity.

That’s what gets me.

The spinoffs are an opportunity to explore different directorial styles. It lets different directors do what they do best in terms of tone. They’re a chance to make simply good movies set in the Star Wars galaxy.

Maybe and hopefully the idea is to leave the director’s signature style but not let it stray too far from the galaxy as opposed to stifling creative.

Frankly I like the notion of a film in the SW galaxy with a horror film tone or a western motif or a cop buddy flick or a drama.

Star wars and zombies yeah that would be great!

I’m glad there will be absolutely no connections between the anthology films and the sequel trilogy. This is a Star Wars movie not a Marvel movie.

By the way Han shot first.

Anyone notice my death star mock-up being used? (9:54ish) This is the second article Ive seen use it now, which is fine but proves how popular these forums are. PS it’s not my favourite version if that mock-up but it’s their choice.

Congrats on hitting the big one!

Keep Circulating the Tapes.

So we’ve got a thread for spoilers that is constantly being used right now, but instead you find the non-spoiler thread to put a spoiler in. Well done.

My bad I thought this meant spoilers for Rogue One which isn’t even out yet not TFA.
