SPOILERS ON for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Love or hate the movie, one refrain has been common amongst everyone who saw Rogue One: A Star Wars Story this weekend, its opening bow at the box office:
Holy crap that Darth Vader scene!
The last scene of the movie saw Darth Vader go absolutely nuts on the Rebels who were desperately trying to get away with the plans to the Death Star, tearing them apart with the Force, lightsaber swings, and more. Earlier in the film, we saw Vader use his signature Force choke move (and add a new signature pun for good measure).
But according to a new rumor, there may have been even more Darth Vader to love that was put to film. Treat this explicitly as rumor - it's coming second-hand from someone who is not in any way involved with the movie.
According to Xavier Gens, a French director known for Hitman and The Divide, there were two Darth Vader scenes cut from the film. Again, Gens has no direct ties to the movie at all, but allegedly claimed on his facebook page that a friend of his who worked on visual effects for Rogue One divulged two other scenes, both of which would have major consequences for the Star Wars universe, were originally in the film. Read on for the details of what we're rumored to have missed, but remember to take it with a whole bucket of salt. StarWarsNewsNet has already said these rumors are false, citing unnamed sources.
