So you sit down to watch a Star Wars movie, popcorn in hand and there it is, the fantastic John Williams score and that giant bold yellow writing! It wouldn’t be Star Wars without either right? Well maybe not!

Here’s a rather interesting news courtesy of the chaps at Star Wars News Net. The gist of the story seems to suggest that Gareth Edwards’ new Star Wars movie – Rogue One will be void of the traditional scrolling yellow text that we’ve become so used to seeing in all previous 7 Star Wars films.

The news comes from the Star Wars fan site from an unnamed but ‘credible’ source close to the project that the scrolling crawl will be absent from this spin-off saga starring Felicity Jones.

They reference also an interview with ET back in July this year where the Producer Kathleen Kennedy stated the familiar opening may not be present:

“You know, we’re in the midst of talking about it, but I don’t think these films will have an opening crawl. I think that’s what we kind of telegraphed at the beginning of the event today.”

So time will tell and we’ll have to wait and see. Rogue One hits cinemas 15th December and also stars Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn, Riz Ahmed and James Earl Jones back voicing Darth Vader!

Will Rogue One: A Star Wars story be a true Star Wars movie without the scrolling text? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
