With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story due to be released at the end of this year, it is understandable that we are all starting to get a bit excited. Theories of what will happen have not been in short supply and we are looking forward to see what pans out.
One theory we have all discussed is whether or not Princess Leia will make an appearance and if so how will she appear.
Rogue One is a spin off film about how a group of heroes steal the plans to the Death Star. Every fan who has watched the original trilogy will know that in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope the opening scene was of Princess Leia fleeing the Empire with said Death Star plans.
In our opinion ending the film by having Princess Leia receiving the Death Star plans would link Rogue One to the original trilogy perfectly. We don’t think it would benefit the film by having it end in any other way. Having the film end by leaving a gap would be, in our opinion, stupid. For example having the Death Star plans stolen, given to some random character to then be passed on, would be a terrible way to end the film. We really cannot see any other acceptable way for the film to end other than Princess Leia receiving the plans.
If our prediction is correct, how the film will portray this is another matter. The original trilogy was shot back in 1977 and Princess Leia, played by Carrie Fisher, needless to say, has changed overtime. Will an actress resembling Carrie Fisher be used? Will they use CGI to recreate her? Or will something else be done entirely?
We personally think that if they go for a close up shot then CGI will be used, as the technology for recreating characters has come a long way. However, a much simpler method could be done where we do not get a close up shot at all. It is possible they will have Princess Leia receive the plans in the distance, therefore no need for CGI or actresses that could possibly upset fans for being filmed poorly. They could have it where Princess Leia is waiting by her ship, in her notable white dress, while one of the heroes walks out to deliver the plans to her.
Whatever the ending is we are all looking forward to the film. Do you agree with our theory or do you have a different idea? Let us know in the comments below.
