‘Rogue One’: There Was A Happier Ending!
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story gave fans an interesting look at the universe. A prequel to the original trilogy, Rogue One showed the trials and tribulations of a group trying to gather plans to destroy the Death Star.
They accomplished their mission, but paid the ultimate sacrifice. Co-Writer Gary Whitta recently spoke about the film’s other ending, one that was more on the happier end of things.
“The original instinct was that they should all die. It’s worth it. If you’re going to give your life for anything, give your life for this, to destroy a weapon that going to kill you all anyway.”
As noble as that may sound, there was a concept for a get away.
“They got away in an escape pod just in time. The pod looked like just another piece of debris…The transfer of the plans happened later. They jumped away and later [Leia’s] ship came in from Alderaan to help them. The ship-to-ship data transfer happened off Scarif.”
While the crew didn’t make it, their sacrifice was not in vain. Although it would have been cool to see this group return in other films, the ending came full circle, and ended with full closure.
