A bit more on how the film was made, and changed. It seems the whole thing was quite fluid, right from the start;
I heard from a lot of the people I’ve spoken to –and I could be wrong– that when you shot it they would sort of play it multiple ways on set, so that way in the editing room…
MENDELSOHN: Yep, absolutely, very much. We did have multiple, multiple ways of going at any given scenario, we had multiple readings of it. So should they ever decided to, there would be a wealth of ways of approaching these different things. And I know from having seen sort of the crucial kind of scenes throughout it, I know there’s vastly different readings of at least four of those scenes.
So in essence there’s basically a completely different version of the movie that could be played on like an alternate cut of the entire film.
MENDELSOHN: Absolutely, with enormous differences within I would’ve said 20 or 30 of the scenes.
rogue-one-poster-ben-mendelsohnMENDELSOHN: There really would be. There would be enormously different renderings.
