According to a new report, Disney is “not fully satisfied” with director Gareth Edwards’ current version of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Starting in July, the film is set to undergo “four weeks of expensive reshoots.”

The New York Post’s Page Six cited an insider who claims, “‘’Rogue One has fallen short of what J.J. Abrams did with Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens. So Disney has ordered reshoots.'”

An anonymous Disney source for Page Six also stated, “The filmmaking team and the studio always anticipated additional shooting and second unit work to make the film the absolute best it can be, and the actors were aware there would be additional shooting. Coming off The Force Awakens, there’s an incredibly high bar for this movie and we have a responsibility to the franchise and to the fans to deliver the best possible movie we can.”

Should fans have a bad feeling about this? It’s hard to say since pretty much any major motion picture goes through reshoots. Sometimes they’re for the best and other times they’re for the worst. We’ll see how the final product turns out when Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16, 2016.
