It seems that Star Wars: Rogue One almost left a shot of the Death Star in its first trailer as the iconic war machine was added in at the last minute.
During the Galactic Innovations: Star Wars and Rogue One event, visual effects artist, Rachel Rose, revealed that the stunning shot seen in Rogue One‘s first trailer wasn’t initially planned. According to the artist, the shot was added into Rogue One‘s first trailer at the last second as no one actually it completed in that time:
Just a few weeks before the first trailer of Rogue One came out, a decision was made that there needed to be this Death Star reveal within the trailer. But this was something we weren’t expecting to actually do.
The shot, in question, comes roughly forty-five seconds into Star Wars: Rogue One‘s first trailer. In the shot, we see the Death Star completely dwarf nearby Star Destroyers while still under construction. Ultimately the shot in Rogue One’s first trailer gave us a bigger idea of the stakes. And it was thanks to the hard work of a group of effects artists who had to plug in the Death Star into Rogue One‘s trailer at the last minute.

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
