Future Star Wars Movies Won't Rely on Legacy Characters, Says Gary Whitta

Another fun fact: K-2SO was originally supposed to be a black protocol droid along the lines of C-3PO. "It's worth it. If you're going to give your life for anything, give your life for this, to destroy a weapon that going to kill you all anyway".

He added that their deaths wasn't in the first draft of the story because they didn't think Lucasfilm or Disney would allow it, possibly leaving main character Jyn Erso on the table to appear in a future film.

"Gary Whitta actually wrote one in the first draft". Jyn did survive. Cassian also survived.

A rebel ship came down and got them off the surface. They jumped away and later [Leia's] ship came in from Alderaan to help them. They transferred the data to Leia's ship just as their ship was destroyed.

Ed Sheeran's Two-Year-Old Doppelgänger Is Freaking The Internet Out
While Ed's latest album ÷ ( 'divide' ) has become a hit, his doppelganger is going viral on the internet. It was when my sister Stacey put it online we got loads of comments from people.

The current run of Star Wars films are in the awkward phase of transitioning between the old and new, but it seems Lucasfilm's grand plan is to eventually tell fresh new stories with all new characters. But don't get too freaked out just yet, he's talking about films that'll be made in 10 or 20 years, which still leaves plenty of time for all of our favorite old-school characters to show up in numerous films.

"So designing the flaw into the Death Star and then getting that information to his daughter, and in the same way that in the original Star Wars films, you know, Luke is trying to kind of redeem his father", Whitta said. That became a decision that eliminated the shots you see in the trailer of the back of Cassian and Jyn and the AT-ATs. Still in the middle of the actual ending and the first draft, the creatives had to make the case to leave no rebel alive. When they finally chose to let the heroes succeed in the mission but fail to return, they had to get the okay from Disney/Lucasfilm brass, says Whitta: "We told them, we feel they all need to die, and [Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy] and everyone else said to go for it".

In an interview with Comicbook.com, screenwriter Gary Whitta, who has a story credit on the film, said he and director Gareth Edwards always wanted to have their heroes bite the dust. "The fact that we had to jump through so many hoops to keep them alive was the writing gods telling us that if they were meant to live it wouldn't be this hard".

The film ends with all the major protagonists sacrificing their lives with as many allusions to A New Hope as possible to make the transition as smooth as possible even to the point of digitally recreating an actor through CGI after his passing almost 23 years ago.
