Star Wars Rogue One Darth Vader updates are getting more interesting as the highly anticipated release date of the new Lucasfilm flick nears. Previous reports have already confirmed that Luke Skywalker’s sinister father will be having a cameo in the movie, but information about his appearance has been limited online.
Now, recent reports have confirmed that there were some edits made to the villain’s scenes to somehow cater to the younger audiences. According to Reddit user KeepR1Dark, who claims he has a hand in the new movie, he decided to leak details to make Disney rethink its recent decisions to re-shoot some scenes.
“In a night scene Vader absolutely lays waste to a Rebel ground Squad,” KeepR1Dark shared. “Unfortunately, this is one of the scenes we have to water down. We made it like something from the old slasher/horror films. Rebel soldiers who joked about a boogie man with magical powers and then minutes later are absolutely wasted.”
“They want a movie that kids can watch too because that will net the most money. [Director] Gareth [Edwards] is livid,” he continued.
Apart from disclosing some tidbits of information about “Star Wars Rogue One” Darth Vader scenes, KeepR1Dark also hinted that another cameo from an A-list celeb “who has one line” is also set to happen. However the source continued to say that he didn’t want to “spoil it because we’re keeping that and it’s such an awesome ‘what the hell’ moment.”
Will it be Obi Wan or Hans Solo?
Meanwhile, Jedi News recently revealed the other cast members who will reportedly join Felicity Jones and Mads Mikkelsen in the movie. The following characters are reportedly confirmed to be part of the Rebel crew:
- Diego Luna is Captain Cassian Andor, a Rebel Alliance Officer.
- Jiang Wen is Baze, a freelance assassin.
- Riz Ahmed is Bodhi, another rebel soldier.
- Donnie Yen is Chirrut, a spiritual warrior.
- Pao and Bistan, two fierce warrior alien characters, both with no actor names attached.
