One of the things that fans have been curious about for a while is whether or not Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will have the opening crawl that's become such a signature for the franchise. We've known, since the project's inception, that this film wants to set itself apart from the main Star Wars saga films, and so the initial assumption is that this one will have a different kind of opening sequence.
Turns out that assumption is right on.
According to Star Wars News Net, a trusted source has confirmed for them that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will forego the signature opening crawl in favor of something fresh and different. While their source wouldn't reveal what will take the crawl's place, they did say that Rogue One opens in a way that's “different than the classic Star Wars films."
So now feel free to speculate what that could mean.
Could this mean that the film will have a more traditional opening title sequence that lists off the people in Rogue One, and who helped make the movie? Will it have a cold open? Will it introduce an entirely new and different style of opening credits that becomes the standard-bearer for all of the A Star Wars Story films?
