Later I went on the Web to look at the trailers for the movie, and was startled to see how much brighter, crisper and more colorful they seemed on my computer screen than in the theater. Although I know that video images are routinely timed to be brighter than movie images, I suspect another reason for this. "Episode II" was shot entirely on digital video. It is being projected in digital video on 19 screens, but on some 3,000 others, audiences will see it as I did, transferred to film.

What's unique about Disney Plus compared to all the rest is that it's the only one of its kind that makes its entire catalog of films and shows available for download, not just certain titles and episodes. Here's how to start watching your favorite Disney shows offline on iPhones ($365 at Amazon) and Android devices.
Download times may vary, depending on your Wi-Fi or data network strength. As your title is downloading, you'll see a ring going around the download icon. Once the ring has fully circled, a checkmark icon replaces the download icon -- this means you can start watching the movie offline.
After Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm, John Knoll heard about some of the early concepts for new "Star Wars" movies and was not impressed with any of them. He began developing his idea for this film and started talking it up to his fellow ILM employees, refining the story into a 30-minute pitch. People at ILM liked it so much that he was encouraged to bring it to Kathleen Kennedy, the new president of Lucasfilm. She loved the pitch and the movie was put into production.
Alan Tudyk initially turned down the role of K-2SO because the start of filming clashed with pre-production of his crowdfunded comedy series Con Man (2015). When Gareth Edwards told him that the filming was moved back by a month in July 2015, he agreed to join the production. To prepare for the role he took mask lessons with a New York-based mask teacher Orlando Pabotoy, to learn to express more through body language. He has since said that the role was one of the best he had worked on because it allowed him to wear a motion-capture suit on set along with the bonus of walking on 13-inch stilts. Tudyk filmed a brief scene where he appears as Wray Nerely, his character from "Con Man", but it ended up getting deleted.
The reason for not showing the opening crawl was revealed by Gareth Edwards in a January 2017 interview. "We knew from the start that John Williams would not be available for our film, the opening crawl decision was made before we started filming, Gary Whitta actually wrote one in the first draft, you'll have to pester him for it. I do believe that the opening crawl words are actually floating out there in space somewhere - we just have to fund NASA well enough so their deep space telescopes can find them. Let's crowdfund it and make it happen." A few fans reached out to Gary Whitta on Twitter asking if he would reveal the opening crawl. He refused tweeting on his Twitter account, "It's not mine to share, I wrote it but Lucasfilm owns it."
