Iconic Star Wars Opening Crawl Removal Disappointed The Creator

Unfortunately, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” also contained a flaw that disappointed the audience as well as the creators. Fans began their experience with the film frustrated as the iconic “A Long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” was nowhere to be seen.

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” was released in theaters without the opening crawl. Moreover, the film will go down in history as the first Star Wars movie to feature without the iconic crawl.

It was obvious that the fans would be frustrated by the move. But the Star Wars opening crawl creator has also sided with the audience.

Opening Crawl Removal Talks Was Revealed Earlier By Kathleen Kennedy

In a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter, the website revealed Dan Perri’s response to the removal of the opening crawl from Heat Vision. The creator said, “Frankly, it is a huge mistake, because the image is so iconic and it’s so important to tens of millions, hundreds of millions of fans. I couldn’t imagine it starting without that. It’s foolish.”

Earlier in July, it was hinted that “Rogue One” could remove the opening crawl. Kathleen Kennedy also told ET, “You know, we’re in the midst of talking about it, but I don’t think these films will have an opening crawl.” Fans can check out the report here.

Fans are worried whether the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VIII” has also removed the iconic opening crawl.
