Star Wars: Rogue One has a very different ending than what the original plans were the filmmakers have revealed that the original plans included more plans for one particular Rebel character. Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm stated that Saw Gerrera played by Forest Whitaker originally had a much larger presence in the film.
“To be honest, we originally thought we were going to develop Saw into something much larger, but we couldn’t accommodate it. So he is not in the movie as much as we would like to have him in the movie, which creates the opportunity to explore his character even further in our future development.”
Forest Whitaker even made a comment about the character himself stating the following. “I’m curious about what else they’re about to do. Because they seem to really like the character, which is great!”
Rogue One arrived in theaters on December 16th and has since become the Number 1 movie worldwide and has grossed more than $500 million around the globe since it’s launch.
