Mon Mothma didn't change her clothes or hair between this and ROTJ, so who knows.
I mean there had to be enough time for Vader to get back to his shuttle, back to a Star Destroyer, and for that Star Destroyer to then follow and catch up with the Tantive and be in mid battle. Was there a hyperspace jump in between there from Scarif to Tatooine? No idea.
I have no issue recasting an actor for a anthology film, they just need to act the part. As long as wardrobe, makeup. Hair and lighting are correct; it's all about the acting.
Case in point, Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash (Walk the Line). Acting, good writing, era look from wardrobe and you got a winner.
All that said, I like how they handled Tarkin for R1. Less so for Princess Leia.

I hope there's a crew of folks tasked with tweaking Tarkin and Leia (especially Leia) for future (re)release. This is one instance I might welcome a Special Edition.
It's like Tarkin looked right from certain angles, yet on others he did not. If they had reduced his part by at least half, maybe it wouldn't have been as noticeable.
Leia not so much.
Its whether Lucasfilm and ILM has the time to work on it a bit more before the DVD comes out at Easter. They've a pretty hefty schedule of films for 2017 , the three Marvels, Skull Island, GOTGII, Valerian ATCOATP, Transformers, Power Rangers and of course SWVIII!!! Not alot of breathing space I'd guess, but they do have the four subsidiaries now to distribute the workload around.
I'd like to think they would, just to get it perfect but I am still amazed they managed to make R1 as well as they did, seeing as its being said now that about a third of it was reshot back in the summer. I honestly couldn't fault nearly everything we saw on the screen, yes, perhaps Tarkin and Leia could be improved but how much extra work is it? And lets face it, even if they actually got Peter Cushing perfect you'd still be thrown by it as much as I was when I saw Michael and Robert as their younger selves and they are damn well done

There are lots of instances in Star Wars where they wear the same clothing for apparent long stretches of time. She's a Rebel and a Princess - it's quite possible that this is a normal look for her during and preceding ANH/R1.
SO THANKFUL I went to the movie last night with some awesome friends
I was feeling bummed out about losing my job but having an awesome friend buy popcorn & movie tickets made my day
Surprisingly there weren't more different aliens....Loved seeing the "fish" creatures, the alien with the tentacles in the prison cell & the slimy mind-reading creature that went over the pilot! lol yes, I like seeing those disgusting slimy special effects because they are so unexpected. wish there would of been a couple more different species of aliens to spice things up on the other planets....but still it was good.
I agree with yaris that TFA & ESB had an even mix of comedy, fun and darkness.....that is the perfect formula that everyone wants.....but kind of only seen a little in Rogue One.
Not the kind of movie for everyone but I liked it.

so this is what I read that yaris was saying....it's on the first or second page...waaaaay back
So was that guy at the end with Leia supposed to be Captain Antillies? Shouldnt he have had a British accent?
The voice of Tarkin was Guy Henry, the performance actor. The voice of Leia was no doubt sampled audio from 'you're my only hope'
I went and saw the film again and have a little different perspective from the first time watching and my distractions.
Because I do video work and I tend to be very technical when I sit, watch and listen to something, it can take me away from enjoying a movie more because I'm so obsessively looking for things. I got to just enjoy it this time and found it to be far better than the first viewing.
The big things being Tarkin and Leia is what heightened my visual sense to look at every darn thing under a microscope and over analyze. Obviously Cushing has been gone for a long time and so naturally I am trying to pick apart everything. The odd thing this time was I just decided to watch it and not think about it. Well Tarkin actually looked better than I first observed and didn't take away from the film nearly as much. Leia was about the same. I don't know how to best explain it, but it was all round a lot better to watch this time.
Even Vader was better than I had scrutinized over, though still some of that neck stuff still stands out, but overall I have to just say it was better the 2nd time not sitting to look for things.
Sure Tarkin wasn't 100% perfect, but I have to say more than last time it looked great. I imagine by home release it will probably look even better not on a giant 40 foot screen where you can see everything in plain sight with nowhere to hide imperfections.
Rogue One is overall an extremely solid film and I hope they explore more anthology stories with new characters.
