Disney Reportedly Unhappy With ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY

Disney execs are reportedly unhappy with what they've seen of director Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and have slated expensive reshoots for July ahead of the film's December release date.

December is expected to be a Star Wars month for the next few years thanks to the new trilogy and several spinoff films.  However, Disney's perceived dominance of the box office during the Holiday season might be in jeopardy this year according to Page Six (the same site that had  Alden Ehrenreich slotted for Han Solo before the Hollywood trades).  The site reports that this isn't your typical and generally anticipated amount of reshoots and the Rogue One is in "crisis" and that the reshoots will be "expensive".    One source tells the site that the film simply falls short of the "high bar set by The Force Awakens" and that Disney isn't taking a back seat to the director's artistic vision.

What do you think of the news?  Disney generally doesn't misfire with its big-budget blockbusters so the report is definitely surprising.  By all accounts, the first teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars story looked as if Gareth Edwards was set to knock it out of the park.




Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is currently slated for release in the US on December 16, 2016.  Gareth Edwards directs from a script written by Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz. The initial idea for the film came from  Industrial Light & Magic visual effects supervisor  and CCO John Knoll.  The cast includes Felicity Jones, Donnie Yen, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen and Aland Tudyk.  The plot of the film concerns how the Rebel Alliance first managed to acquire the plans for the Death Star prior to the events of 1977's A New Hope.
