Having hit cinemas over the past week to much fanfare, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story continues to dominate movie headlines. If you’re a Star Wars fan struggling to deal with the inevitable comedown from all the excitement, then attempt to console yourself with Vimeo user Vashi Nedomansky’s masterful video, which splices together all 46 shots from the trailers and other footage which didn’t make it to the theatrical cut.
According to Vashi, approximately 40 percent of the film was re-shot, hence why there was such a bounty of material to play with. In an article on his website, the professional editor said:
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story used one teaser, 3 trailers and several BTS promos to build a world that Star Wars fans would hopefully want to visit and share in the experience. With the reshoots and adjustments that Gareth Edwards, Tony Gilroy and the studio made on the film, a lot of the footage in every incarnation made the final cut…but a lot of it never made the final cut. I have isolated 46 individual shots that were shared in the promotional material but never made the final cut of the film. The goal of the promotional push over the months leading up to the release of the film on December 16th, 2016 had one ultimate goal…to attract an audience. Apparently 40 percent of the film was reshot which leads one to believe that changes in the tone, structure and story occurred for whatever reason.”
