Gareth Edwards’ analogy of the actors being like Star Wars toys is a bit Hitchcockian, but we get what he means. The shots of Cassian in the Imperial officer suit are super cool and just the general excitement on set is refreshing. This may be my favorite Rogue One video yet, just because it’s so human.


One note, though. Since when could lasers just blow away the legs of an Imperial Walker? Doesn’t the second “A” in “AT-ACT” stand for “Armored?” There must have been a pretty substantial improvement in armor technology between the AT-ATs of The Empire Strikes Back and AT-ACTs of Rogue One, or a huge devolution in weapon capabilities of the Rebels in that time.

Just another question for December 16, when Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens.
