For fans who have been thinking that maybe the deleted scenes will be included on a Blu-ray release of "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," you are in for a disappointment as director Gareth Edwards said he doesn't have plans to include it.

According to Edwards, putting the scenes could be more complex as what he is expecting and does not want to compromise it.

"The stuff people talk about, like what they saw in the trailer, they're not scenes you can just put on a DVD," Edwards said at the SXSW festival. "They're moments within scenes and threads, and you pull a thread and it all changes. It was changing the whole time. It's not like there was one version and then there was this other version - it was like this thing that incrementally evolved constantly through all of postproduction and didn't stop until there was a gun at our heads and we were forced to release the movie."

Some reports claimed that the memorable deleted shots wherein it shows a TIE fighter flying in front of Jyn is something very important for "Star Wars" legend.

"It's going to have to remain a myth because it's sort of the thing where you're trying ideas out to find the right version of the movie, and at the same time marketing is getting excited about certain shots and moments," Edwards added. "Eventually, you'll see something presented to you and you'll be like, wait a minute, this shot is no longer in the film."

It was also reported that there were reshoots for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" before.
