YOUR TOP 5 REQUESTS
How Star Wars: Rogue One can take flight.
A Connected Universe
1 For starters you want Rogue One to truly feel part of a galaxy far, far away. “A reference to animated series Rebels,” says Robert William Graham. “It should be all brand new characters but set up characters and events in the original trilogy.”
The Dark Side
2 Given that Vader, the Emperor and Grand Moff Tarkin are at the top of their evil game before A New Hope it’s little surprise you want some appearances from one ( or all three). “Darth Vader should be in Rogue One, but not the main villain,” says Gary Pratt.
War, Huh, Yeah
3 “Blood, sweat and mud. Saving Private Ryan on the forest moon of Endor, essentially,” says Isaac Thompson, echoing many who called for a different feel from the main films in the series.
4 Setting the film during a time period yet to be covered on the big screen means opportunities to introduce fresh faces. “Don’t make anyone the second cousin twice removed of Han Solo, there are an infinite number of stories in the Star Wars universe,” says Peter Lowdon.
5 You can’t have Star Wars without Ben Burtt’s sound effects, or John Williams’ score, but Stephane Thevenin wants a fresh spin on the familiar soundscape. “A variation on the rhythm and composition of Williams’ music could be great.”
