A new episode of Star Wars Show is out and it's unveiling all the secrets of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Andi Gutierrez talked with Leland Chee, Pablo Hidalgo and Matt Martin from the Lucasfilm Story Group and revealed the behind-the-scenes secrets of Rogue One. You can see the video below:
Pablo Hidalgo talked a lot about the connections between Rogue One and the animated show Star Wars Rebels quite a bit. Of course he discussed the Chopper connection and visiting the Rogue One set. They also talked about other connections, including various ships and a certain General.
It's amazing to see how many connections were made and how hard the crew worked to tie everything together. The video also revealed that they actually used unused New Hope footage for scenes with Red Leader and Gold Leader and even had an original actor record new dialogue.
We also got some other amazing tidbits, like learning that if Leia hadn't gotten caught up with the Battle of Scarif, she would have arrived on Tatooine to retrieve Obi-Wan. The story of Star Wars would have been a lot different if that happened! There were also easter eggs like Jyn's toys, blue milk and so forth.
This was pretty informative video and it's great to see how much throught the Story Group put into everything. They have to be thoughtful to keep up with eagle-eyed fans! What did you think of the episode? What was your favorite new fact learned?
