Disney execs in a panic over upcoming ‘Star Wars’ film | Page Six

The first “Star Wars” spinoff, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” is in crisis, and the movie will have to go into expensive reshoots over the summer, sources exclusively confirmed to Page Six.

The much-anticipated “Rogue One” is due for release on Dec. 16, but we’re told bosses at Disney are not fully satisfied with the first cut from director Gareth Edwards.

One Hollywood source told us, “The execs at Disney are not happy with the movie, and ‘Rogue One’ will have to go back into four weeks of expensive reshoots in July.”

Hmm, I always thought Star Wars movies were critic proof...

Fans' reactions to things like Ewoks and Jar-Jar should have dispelled that myth for you. :)

This is not Star Wars it is Star Wars II. It is unusual for a spin-off to be up to the original.

It wasn't a high bar though.

The latest rumor seems to be that the director announced he was going to make a straight up war movie and Disney said "sure, go ahead". Then Disney saw the early cut and decided they didn't in fact want directors doing their own thing, they want another JJ Abrams movie so the re-shoots are to lighten the mood.
