Question: This movie used Ultra Panavision 70 lenses which gives an aspect ratio of 2.76:1. However the release print and home entertainment versions have an aspect ratio of 2.39:1. Why is this?

Question: 3 questions: Was the planet Krennic goes to to talk to Vader supposed to be Mustafar? If so, why would Vader want to go there of all places? Lastly, what was the reason Krennic went to visit Vader?

1

Answer: Yes, Pablo Hidalgo from the Lucasfilm Story Group confirmed Vader's palace was on Mustafar. Gary Whitta who wrote the story, suggested that he lived there because "he wants to punish himself" for turning to the dark side. Krennic visits Vader because he wants him to arrange a personal audience with the Emperor and cut Tarkin out of the equation.

Question: Dr Evazan and Ponda Baba (the two that confront Ben Kenobi in the cantina in Star Wars) have a small cameo in the city of Jedha. Is the assumption that they made it out of the city before the empire destroys the city within the short time of their cameo?

Answer: Yes. They were on their way to the starport when they were encountered. They left the planet a short while later, before the Death Star attack.

Question: How was Princess Leia already on Admiral Radius' ship? Was she on Yavin with Bail while he was meeting with the council and he left her there when he left?

Answer: She was on Yavin IV, but after the Rebel council meeting Bail returned to Alderaan and assigned Leia to travel to Tatooine to fetch Obi-Wan Kenobi. Her ship the Tantive IV was damaged in a previous mission and was undergoing repairs on Admiral Raddus' ship, so he was escorting Leia to Tatooine when he instead decided to assist the Rogue One team on Scarif.

Factual error: When they are trying to navigate the shuttle through Eadu, the shuttle abruptly collides with a rock, which causes Bodhi to jolt backwards. If the shuttle hitting the rock had caused the shuttle reduce speed so abruptly, in the way that was shown, then Bodhi would have jolted forwards, not backwards. (00:57:05)
