Star Wars: Rogue One Finishes Post-Production

Rogue One Death Star Installment

After months of hype (and years of speculation prior to that), Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is now just a few weeks away, and December 16th can't come soon enough. The story of how the Rebels stole the plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon has been gradually getting more and more interest, making it look like Disney's risky move away from traditional Skywalker films into anthology movies may just pay off.

Of course, it's not been all plain solar-sailing. The post-production period has been by most reports a troubled one, with suggestions that Lucasfilm weren't pleased with the film's direction making way for lengthy reshoots and later talk of director Gareth Edwards taking a backseat in his editing room. None of this has been evidenced in the plentiful trailers and TV spots though, which all seem very on message, but the real proof will be in the finished film. And it seems that, whatever's happened behind the scenes, it's all done now.

Todd Vaziri, ILM's lead visual effects artist on the film has just tweeted out a rather humorous "It's a wrap" Admiral Ackbar meme that announces the end of post-production on the film. Vaziri also worked as lead artist on The Force Awakens (and Tomorrowland, but let's not hold it against him).
