In the past couple of weeks rumours have been swirling that Disney isn't overly happy with Gareth Edwards' work on ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY and have demanded that reshoots take place to alter the tone of the film. It's been hard to narrow down exactly where the truth lies as some reports have gone so far as to say that close to half the film will be reshot while others say that these reshoots were always in the cards and that they'll merely serve to add a bit of polish to the film. While speaking with The Independent recently, Mads Mikkelsen commented on the reshoots and gave his two cents.

Basically, all the big films I have done always have reshoots, it is part of their budget. They’re either not super happy with a scene bit, the way we were acting, or maybe there’s something they want to add. It’s not a new thing, it happens with every film. Whether it’s bigger or less, I have no idea, I have nothing to compare with. It’s the same film, it’s just adding little bits here and there to do the final polishing. That’s my feeling.

Most productions nowadays, especially ones as big as ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY, almost always factor in time for reshoots, yet we still get apprehensive when we hear about the films we're excited about going back under the knife. I suspect this won't be the last we hear on the subject, but my enthusiasm for the project hasn't diminished in the slightest. The ROGUE ONE reshoots likely won't add much more to Mikkelsen's character however as he says that he's only set to film for one day.

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY is set for a December 16, 2016 release.

- four to five weeks of reshoots, starting this month
- reshoots were always scheduled for the spring, but got bumped to summer
- “The changes have everything to do with clarity and character development and all take place [as inserts] within scenes we’ve already shot.”
- “It’s a lot of talking in cockpits”
- planned picture-lock by mid-August (as opposed to TFA, which locked in Oct 2015)

- four to five weeks of reshoots, starting this month
- reshoots were always scheduled for the spring, but got bumped to summer
- “The changes have everything to do with clarity and character development and all take place [as inserts] within scenes we’ve already shot.”
- “It’s a lot of talking in cockpits”
- planned picture-lock by mid-August (as opposed to TFA, which locked in Oct 2015)
- “If we were rewriting the movie and reshooting 40 percent of movie, we would not be finishing in August,” a source on the production says. “People really would be panicking – and changing the release date.”
- one of the main reasons the reshoots will take so long is to accommodate the ensemble cast's schedules
- Chris McQuarrie did do some work on the shooting script, but is not involved in the reshoots
- Tony Gilroy (who did uncredited rewrites on Godzilla) brought on board to offer notes on the rough cut and write additional material
- Gilroy will be directing 2nd unit
- there were no test screenings for the film and likely will never be for any Star Wars movie

I imagine Mads Mikkelsen is right on this. Considering that Disney paid a billion dollars for Star Wars, they want every installment to be perfectly shot in their minds.

$4 billion for Lucas Films. I'm sure Disney will get every penny back and a LOT more.
