That clip above is the great sizzle reel for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that just debuted at Star Wars Celebration. But if you were watching the live-feed from the convention, you know that right before the panel wrapped up, Kathleen Kennedy introduced a brand-new Rogue One trailer, that wasn’t streamed live on YouTube. If you weren’t in the room, you were out of luck.

You may recall that J.J. Abrams debuted a sizzle reel for The Force Awakens at last year’s Comic-Con, which featured new footage and some great behind-the-scenes material — this sizzle reel for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is pretty similar. Instead of debuting a new trailer for the upcoming standalone / prequel story, director Gareth Edwards offered this fantastic sneak peek at the film during the Rogue One panel at Star Wars Celebration.
One of the biggest panels at this year’s Star Wars Celebration kicks off at 11AM today: the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story panel. Plenty of special guests are expected included director Gareth Edwards and plenty of members of the film’s cast. You can watch the panel streaming live above, and we’ll be updating this post with news and notes as they come in! The film’s plot synopsis:
Sorry Comic-Con, but it’s all about Star Wars Celebration this year. The biggest event in the galaxy far, far away is only days away and ScreenCrush will be there to bring you all the latest news and updates from the three-day event.
Over the past week we’ve seen lots of new stuff from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, including photos, character details, more photos, info on those highly-publicized reshoots, some other photos, and oh, hey, what do we have here? It’s more photos! We have six images from the upcoming Star Wars anthology film along with more details about the characters, including Mon Mothma — who will have a bigger role than we previously assumed.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is holding reshoots this summer. No one disputes this. What is disputed is just what those reshoots mean for the movie, how much the film is changing in the middle of production, who is in charge of those reshoots, and whether it means the production is in any kind of trouble.
Deathtroopers! Hot-headed Rebel pilots! Blind warriors! Stormtroopers hanging out in the ocean for some reason! These new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story photos are like a Stefon sketch.
Another day, another update on those Rogue One reshoots, which went from being a typical part of production to an intensely scrutinized process in record time. The most recent report on Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars spinoff indicated that the majority of the reshoots are merely to add more dialogue and smaller character moments, but the latest update suggests that at least some of the action sequences might be getting a little work, too.
The rumors surrounding the reshoots on Rogue One escalated pretty quickly, and within less than 48 hours we went from “Disney is unhappy” to “it needs some levity, no big deal” to “Christopher McQuarrie is involved and they’re reshooting 40 percent of the film.” Crazy. Today brings yet another report, this time offering some much-needed clarification on exactly what’s happening behind the scenes with Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars Story.
Over the last couple of days there’s been a bit of news regarding reshoots on Rogue One, with the initial report claiming that Disney is unhappy with Gareth Edwards’ cut of the Star Wars anthology film. Subsequent reports revealed what many already suspected: it’s just your usual run of reshoots to retool and fine-tune some things, mostly to lighten the tone. And according to a new rumor, while Disney may not be outright displeased with Rogue One, the reshoots may be a bit more involved than we thought.
