Of course, in the film’s theatrical release, K-2SO never makes it out of the Imperial base alive, while Cassian dies much later, on a beach with Jyn Erso. This clip, along with most of the footage from the film’s trailers, is just another glimpse of the Rogue One ending that may have existed prior to its extensive reshoots. It remains to be seen whether this alternate ending will become fully realized in the director’s cut, or if we’ll have to wait for the inevitable fan edits that will undoubtedly depict all our favorite characters dying in countless, gruesome ways.
