However, these shots of Jyn, Cassian and Krennic on the beach seem to suggest a different third act.
In the movie Jyn goes from the data vault straight to the top of the tower to transmit the plans. Cassian was lying at the bottom of the vault, Krennic was following Jyn.
Looking at the footage above makes me wonder if the reported reshoots changed the ending. Did Jyn and Cassian escape with the physical copy of the plans? Or are those scenes just part of an extended escape scene that got cut out completely.
- Did the reshoots change the ending (Jyn and Cassian escaping with a physical copy of the plans) or was the third act just cut short?
