Gareth Edwards pretty much had the dream moviemaking experience when he directed Last year’s Rogue One: He got to be a part of a franchise he’d loved since he was a kid, but he also got to contribute his own ideas to an almost entirely original story within that franchise instead of being bound by the confines of an already-established plotline. At SXSW on Monday, Edwards delivered a keynote speech about his work in Star Wars and becoming a filmmaker, and revealed that one of the planets in Rogue One got its name from a fortuitous misspelling at a coffee shop.
There were some CGI characters in Rogue One that in my opinion, turned out to be the best we've seen yet. They deemed it necessary for the story line to do this, and by watching the video you'll see just how hard it was. SPOILERS AHEAD!
