Multiple sources are reporting that Disney has ordered extensive, expensive reshoots for director Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ because they are disappointed with how the film is performing with test audiences. Now, Latino-Review is reporting that these reshoots will include additions such as more nostalgic Star Wars content and even a cameo from an important Star Wars character.

Although Disney has yet to confirm anything, it’s very likely that the cameo will be none other than Alden Ehrenreich as young Han Solo, as Disney is surely eager to get the actor in front of audiences as quickly as possible to start building hype for the 2018 Han Solo spin-off film.

Sources from Variety and The Hollywood Reporter claim that Disney is unhappy with the film’s overly serious tone and have ordered the reshoots to try and inject the “classic fun” and “adventure” from the original Star Wars films.

Movies undergo reshoots all the time, so there’s nothing especially troubling about the news that Rogue One isn’t quite up to Disney’s standards yet. As the first of many planned anthology films in the Star Wars saga, Disney needs Rogue One to be a hit, so you can be sure that they will spend as much money and time as it takes to make it something audiences want to see.
