Rogue One re-shoots rumoured to be in order to 'lighten the mood'

http://io9.gizmodo.com/more-details...ne-r-1779744810

Recently, Rogue One went back for some re-shoots over the summer amidst some apparent disquiet from Disney over the first cut.

Rumour mill now says, however, that the re-shoots are not about general quality, but about the film being tonally wrong ("tonally deaf", says one source) and, now some are saying, the re-shoots are entirely about brightening the mood; Disney is worried it has gone too far from feeling like a Star Wars movie.

Hmm, not sure on this one. On the one hand, this film feeling like Star Wars is a concern I share, but I certainly didn't get the impression from what I've seen that it is in any way 'too dark'. Getting a little bit more grim is very acceptable territory for Star Wars spin-offs, I'd have thought.

perhaps a result of hollywood paranoia over the viability of dark films because of BvS's failure. we could speculate forever.

The trailer didn't really reveal much, but it definitely has a potential to be a lot more "dark and gritty" than your average SW movie.

I just hope this "mood brightening" doesn't feel shoe-horned and make a mess of the film.

Re-shoots for mood brightening... that doesn't sound too good for any movie. Patches for something that could be very good... or band-aids for something that doesn't work (and never will)...

maybe it just wasn't dense enough...not enough things going on in every frame.

Here's more from the crazy rumour mill:

http://www.slashfilm.com/rogue-one-reshoots-details/

40% of film to be re-shot, Disney unhappy with director (but the idea that Christopher McQuarrie would take over the direction was shot down almost immediately).

Note Disney's response to the rumours at the bottom hasn't done a good job of refuting them.

Writer Gary Whitta has a stronger response to Reddit talk:

https://twitter.com/garywhitta/stat...559114628894724

I can't get over him being the writer. I remember him as an early 90s reviewer of Amiga games, back in the day...

40%... if that is correct, Rogue One is in for a bumpy ride...

Possibly making the whole thread pointless- EW reports that the reshoots are mostly conversational, are nothing like 40% and mood is not the issue:

I really hope they're not reshooting to change the tone of the film.

That is good news. Makes a lot of sense.

Who are these people that need to spread silly rumours like the world in ending or something? In the end it sounds like movie business as usual.

Errr... that would be the only thing that you would approve of?

I hope: NO emperor... and MAYBE a very short cameo bY vader at the end... But if they are required to make Rogue One a good movie, it's doomed.

The Madsmeister himself comments:

https://stormtrooperlarry.com/2016/...-remove-scenes/

Rumours still flying around both ways on this, including the view (echoed by Mads here) that Disney is riding it for publicity.

Oh, spoiler for his character in that link btw.

Well, still sounds like business as usual. Just normal pick-ups, tuning and stuff. I think the 'changing the tone' rumour has little ground, it's just a huge film. And pick ups are part of it.
