Last month we received several quotes from director Gareth Edwards on the much-publicized topic of Rogue One‘s reshoots. Following up along those same lines, John Gilroy and Colin Goudie, two of the film’s editors, recently expanded on this very topic with Yahoo UK. In the article, Gilroy and Goudie touched on an assortment of changes that were made during the reshoots including how certain characters were fleshed out more and how the action-heavy third act of Rogue One came to be.
It’s a lengthy read but definitely worth every second of your time.
Two of the film’s editors John Gilroy (editor of ‘Suicide Squad’/’Nightcrawler’/’Pacific Rim’ and brother of Tony Gilroy, the ‘Michael Clayton’ and ‘Bourne Legacy’ director brought in to oversee the reshoots) and Colin Goudie (editor of Edwards’ 2010 breakout ‘Monsters’) chatted with Yahoo Movies UK to discuss their roles on the movie, explain how the reshoots reshaped the movie, and share how some classic footage from ‘A New Hope’ made it into ‘Rogue One’ with help from the original actor who played Gold Leader.
