‘Rogue One’ to Be the First Star Wars Movie without an Opening Crawl


What'd you know? It is the 'rogue' one after all. Ha, ok, I'll stop with the lame puns for now. Anyway, Kathleen Kennedy says only the saga films have a crawl, but that doesn't seem to be the case. The comic books have a crawl. The video games have a crawl. Who cares? That's what I think, I just want to have a good movie and the reshoots, director problems have been worrisome. Kennedy has this to say:

“We felt that’s so indicative of what those saga films are. Initially, we probably will begin the film in a way that is traditional, with just the title.”

It is part of what we expect from Star Wars. The crawl should remain with the saga trilogy films and not the side films like 'Rogue One.' I get that. To stylistically differentiate them. I tend to agree with this. The film comes out in a few weeks, I haven't received any press invites just yet, but crossing my fingers it happens before I submit my year-end list to various polls.
