The Rebel base at Yavin IV features several full sized card board cut-outs of X-Wings and Y-Wing fighters, using the same technique of filling out the hangar as in the original Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977).
Cinematographer Greig Fraiser is using Ultra Panavision 70 anamorphic lenses on the Star Wars movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
This is the first Star Wars film ever made without involving C-3PO.
The original Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977) features one shot of the main heroes standing outside the Yavin IV temple. Although the temple itself was a matte painting, the actors in the foreground, including various Rebels and their transports, were filmed at Cardington Sheds in Bedfordshire, England. The Rogue One crew returned to the same location to film not only exteriors, but this time also recreated the interior of the Rebel base there.
Alan Tudyk is playing a droid character named K-2SO, through motion capture technology. Tudyk also previously played the robot character Sonny in I, Robot (2004).
The idea for this film came from ILM visual effects supervisor John Knoll. He received a story credit and served as an executive producer of the film.
