Watch two all-new Rogue One Featurettes: “Paradise” and “Behind the Scenes with K-2SO”


Two all-new Rogue One featurettes have been released featuring a behind the scenes look at the film with K-2SO, as well as a look at the Imperial planet of Scarif…

We are just four short days away from the worldwide theatrical premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the very first Star Wars standalone film in Star Wars cinematic history, and today, we have two all-new Rogue One featurettes that go behind the scenes of the film with Alan Tudyk’s K-2SO, as well as a look at the planet of Scarif.

Our first Rogue One featurette is titled “Paradise” and it shows the Imperial military construction planet of Scarif, which will be heavily featured in the film’s final act. Check it out:

I love how Rogue One director, Gareth Edwards, is first a Star Wars fan before anything else. HIs knowledge of Star Wars comes out in every interview that he does, and it makes me feel fantastic for the success of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

"The planet Scarif would be a beautiful tropical paradise if not for the presence of a major Imperial military installation. Scarif is the principal construction facility for the vast Imperial war machine. The world is enveloped in impenetrable deflector shields and is heavily defended. —"

Next, we have a behind the scenes look at the film, with our second Rogue One featurette, that features the former Imperial Enforcer droid, K-2SO (Alan Tudyk) as he films scenes for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Here’s that:

“Quiet! And there’s a fresh one if you mouth off again.”

I think Kaytoo is going to be everyone’s favorite new character, once the dust settles from Rogue One’s premiere. I already love his personality and just the way he looks. I love that he has a propensity for spouting the odds, during particularly tight situations.

"A reprogrammed Imperial security droid now loyal to the Alliance, K-2SO is an alarming sight standing within a secret Rebel base. The pragmatic droid is an effective insertion agent, as he can blend in perfectly at Imperial installations and outposts. —"

With only four days left until Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters in the US, Star Wars fans are sure to be in two firm camps: The “No more trailers or featurettes camp” and the “Gimmie all the SPOILERS!” camp. I love little featurettes like these two, as they don’t really spoil anything for the film, and they do wet the appetite a bit until the film reaches the theater.
