Rogue One: A Star Wars Story co-writer Gary Whitta has revealed new details about the film’s cut Darth Vader scene.
Addressing one of his followers (who asked if there was anything “truly bats**t” Whitta pitched that didn’t make it into Rogue One), the writer once again tweeted about the abandoned Vader sequence, revealing some new details in the process. You can read his post below.
The corridor scene Whitta’s referring to is from the end of the film, where we see Darth Vader lay waste to a number of rebels as they scurry to try to get the Death Star plans into safe hands. Many consider this moment one of Rogue One‘s highlights, though hindsight may tarnish that feeling now that Whitta has teased what we could have gotten instead.
Directed and co-written by J.J. Abrams, the latest Star Wars movie — The Rise of Skywalker — stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’ o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, and Carrie Fisher, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant. The film is now in theaters.
