Rogue One continues to elevate in the hearts of Star Wars fans, and as we hit the fifth year since its release, Felicity Jones looks back at the filming of the movie in 2015 in the Maldives and remembers a key scene that took a week to film, just to find the right sunlight.

“We shot it every single evening over a week to get the right light of sunset, to get the perfect pink light, so we knew that scene inside out by the end of the week. It was just amazing to see how it morphed and shifted and changed. We shot that film in a very visceral, naturalistic, gritty way, which I think is why so many people responded to it. I think they loved that it felt so real and had elements of the ’70s Star Wars films that had that similar feeling of naturalism and reality.”
