Because Star Wars Rogue One is set between the prequels and A New Hope, you knew that there had to be connecting tissue to help show that this was an “out there” story, especially since it dealt with the Death Star plans. However, fans were very surprised by how many classing Star Wars characters showed up. Yet, for writer Gary Whitta, not all the cameos were worth it to him.
“I thought having Evazan and Walrus Man was a little too much,” Whitta said to Entertainment Weekly. “You have to reign in that instinct to go back and put things in just because you loved them when you were a kid.”
The other problem was that A New Hope actually told two different tales of the mission.
“The problem is that in A New Hope, they contradict themselves,” he explained, noting that “At one point, they say, ‘Conjure up the stolen data tapes’ and at another point they say, ‘Several transmissions were beamed aboard the ship.’ Did they steal data tapes or was it transmissions?”
This was part of the reason by the various takes on the films ending, which in turn led to certain cuts being made to “save” the film.
“No matter how well you’re doing in a movie there’s always the point where the audience gets a bit antsy. You don’t want people to have that feeling in a Star Wars film.”

One of the coolest Star Wars projects we’ve seen in a while is Visions, an anthology of shorts created by seven world-renowned anime studios. George Lucas cited the films of Akira Kurosawa as a heavy influence in his galaxy, and now contemporary Japanese creators have returned the favor. The shorts
