'Rogue One': Ben Mendelsohn Says an "Enormously Different" Version Exists

"We did have multiple, multiple ways of going at any given scenario, we had multiple readings of it," the actor says.

Please let it all be included on the Blu-Ray.

Actor Ben Mendelsohn, who plays Orson Krennic in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, told Collider in a recent candid interview that, yes, there were a lot of reshoots for the film, which made for a completely different flick.

We knew quite a few reshoots happened, but Mendelsohn better explained what it all meant to the story and how it changed, apparently altogether.

"We did have multiple, multiple ways of going at any given scenario, we had multiple readings of it," Mendelsohn told Collider. "So should they ever decide to, there would be a wealth of ways of approaching these different things. And I know from having seen sort of the crucial kind of scenes throughout it, I know there’s vastly different readings of at least four of those scenes.

He continued that there are “enormous differences within, I would’ve said 20 or 30 of the scenes. There really would be. There would be enormously different renderings.”

And that is not at all hard to believe, especially when the first trailer are compared to the final product. (Where was Jyn running across the beach holding the plans?!)

The Hollywood Reporter in May reported that Disney ordered reshoots, and the production underwent several weeks of that process. 

All we can hope at this point is that everything, including the galactic kitchen sink, will be thrown at the home disks.
