More than five years after Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opened in theaters, Hal Hickel (Industrial Light & Magic Animation Director) has posted several photos of the film's making on Twitter. The fans especially caught a special picture with Darth Vader. The Sith Lord was one of the highlights of the film and was only seen in a few, but very impressive scenes. However, the now shared image of Hal Hickel shows a moment that did not make it into the film in the end. We have included the tweet here below.
When asked by the fans, Hal Hickel stated that there was originally a meeting between Darth Vader and Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin. However, he can no longer remember the dialogue between the two characters. The scene was not shown in the final film for creative reasons. Even with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, there were various re-shoots after the end of the actual shooting. In addition to Felicity Jones in the leading role as Jyn Erso, Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn and Diego Luna as Cassian Andor were also part of the spin-off's cast.
The latter will soon be starring in a new series on Disney +. Star Wars Andor brings the character's history before the events of Rogue One into focus. There is no exact date for the first season yet. Because of the pandemic, filming had to be suspended until further notice.
