To celebrate this week’s upcoming release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, IMAX has released a new featurette. Offering commentary from Director Gareth Edwards and members of the cast including Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, and Ben Mendelsohn, the featurette highlights what sets Rogue One apart from other movies in the Star Wars franchise, as well as the importance of seeing this epic tale on a grand scale.
“It’s the world’s biggest campfire that we’re all gathering around, and you haven’t really seen your film until you’ve sat down in an IMAX screen and watched it.” – Director Gareth Edwards
“The thing that just crept to the surface really easily was this idea of a slightly more realistic Star Wars…we took war photography from Vietnam, the South Pacific and the Middle East and Photoshopped rebel helmets on the soldiers and replaced some things with stormtroopers in the background…” – Director Gareth Edwards
The IMAX release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
