Star Wars Rogue One’s Bonus Features Contains A Very Funny Blooper
Animation Supervisor Hal Hickel recently gave a keynote presentation all about Rogue One‘s visual effects, focusing his attention on the character K-2SO. Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Frozen) was the voice behind the droid, he was also on set in a motion capture suit so he could interact with his co-stars while also giving valuable reference points for the animation team to use later.
Director Gareth Edwards brought on Tudyk to the movie knowing his talents as a comedic performer and encouraged the veteran actor to go all-out. With such a massive and sometimes complicated film that had many precisely choreographed moments, Tudyk’s portrayal of the reprogrammed droid was one of the few moments of the filming process in which Edwards could relax and just watch what happened.
You can see in the clip at the top a sample of Tudyk’s comedic timing and how it would be hard for cast and crew to keep a straight face much less stay in character with a professional funny man around.
One of the very first and memorable bloopers came in Star Wars: A New Hope. A squad of Stormtroopers confront C-3PO and R2-D2 as they masquerade for Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) in the Death Star. When the Stormtroopers enter the control room, one of them had difficulty finding where the door due to poor visibility in his helmet and hits his head on it when entering, with viewers actually seeing him readjust his helmet in the film.
Rogue One is currently available on VOD and digital purchase. The Blu-ray will be released Tuesday, April 4th,2017.
