    You might want to temper your expectations for the first Star Wars spinoff film.

    Directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is still scheduled to release on December 16th, but sources tell Page Six that the highly anticipated spinoff will require expensive reshoots over the summer as the film isn't shaping up nearly as well as Disney had expected.

    "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," one source told Page Six.

    "Disney won’t take a back seat, and is demanding changes, as the movie isn’t testing well," the source added.

    Trailer:



    I never saw this trailer. That does look pretty bad. Another prequel story too.

    I doubt it could be worse than Episode 1-3.

    So has Disney dictated that all future Star Wars movies must have a female lead?

    It sure did. It was a rehash of the first movie.

    That's kinda the problem with Rogue One: it looks like a total rehash of Episode VII, which came less than a year ago. Spunky girl infiltrates empire to destroy new superweapon and zzzzzzzzz

    It was a complete re-hash of the first film except they beat you over the head with "progressive" cultural marxism for 2 1/2 hours.

    She's just getting plans, she isn't blowing anything up. I bet they shoehorn Chewbacca into this.

    They're trying to get a whole, inter connected deal going like they have with Marvel. Mix and match characters that you can throw at audiences.

    It sure was. From space battle beginning to desert planet to droid trying to find his master all the way down the line until you're watching them blowing up a deathstar.

    Pretty sure this is not true. I don't know for sure, but it seems like Star Wars movies don't get test screenings, to keep leaks from getting out. Reshoots are very common, so IMO, someone noticed that they were doing reshoots and blew it up to get some attention.

    OR

    The movie could suck.
