Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker is releasing on December 20th, 2019. This is the last film in the Skywalker saga, and it will be big. Naturally, Lucasfilm wants to get it right. therefore, it should come as no surprises that the studio has begun re-shoots.
Most of the shooting for Rise Of Skywalker has happened at Pinewood Studios in London. While principal photography ended at the beginning of the year, some re-shoots are happening right now.
Rise of Skywalker Re-shoots Are Happening
Making Star Wars is reporting that at Pinewood Studios has an area at the studio that has been sectioned off. It just so happens that this area is about the size of the Millennium Falcon. It’s currently unknown what scenes with the Falcon are getting re-shot. Also in the report, there are scenes getting re-shot on a desert planet. It could be on the planet we saw in the original trailer, but that is yet to be known.
If these desert scenes are getting re-shot, they could be including somethings we didn’t previously know about. This film is the end of a huge saga for Star Wars, so it seems like Lucasfilm wants this to be the best Star Wars film it can be.
An interesting tidbit to accompany this story is the fact that a rough cut of the film was shown off sometime in the last month, as Making Star Wars has reported. That of course means that, if the rough cut was shown off last month, then re-shoots would have likely followed.
Star Wars Reshoots Won’t Be That Bad
Roo-shoots are common, and these likely won’t be too substantive. It has been previously reported that the film was getting edited as it was shooting. Doing that makes the post-production phase a lot faster to complete.
Regardless of what is re-shot, Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker will hopefully be the finale every Star Wars fan is looking for.
