'Rogue One' Opening Crawl: Why Is the Intro Missing?

'Rogue One' Opening Crawl: Why Is the Intro Missing?

If you go to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in theaters this weekend, you might notice that there is no opening crawl to start off the movie.

The movie starts off with the same famous line that kicks off the other films in the Star Wars franchise, “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…,” but it does not have a crawl that sets up the story.

Kathleen Kennedy, the producer of the movie, opened up recently about why they didn’t put the crawl in the new film.

“We felt that’s so indicative of what those saga films are. Initially, we probably will begin the film in a way that is traditional, with just the title,” she told Variety.

Did you know that the plot of Rogue One was actually formed out of part of the opening crawl for the first film in the franchise?

Click inside to see how the Star Wars: A New Hope crawl played into the new film’s story…

Rogue One takes place right before the start of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. The action in the film reportedly ends just minutes before the original film begins.

In the A New Hope opening crawl it is said that, “Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the Death Star.” This is basically the plot of Rogue One!
