Rogue One Originally Had Crawl

Unless you've been under a rock for a few months (or are new to the Star Wars fandom), you probably saw one of the many internet articles about how Rogue One doesn't have an opening crawl. The stream of text has been a staple of the Star Wars franchise since 1977, until now. In an interview with Empire, director Gareth Edwards has revealed that the first draft had a crawl.
And then at some point, probably like six months before we were filming, we were in a meeting, and they talked about not having an opening crawl, because these are standalone films, not part of the sagas.... And our film is also born out of a crawl – the reason we exist is because of a previous crawl, so it feels like this infinite loop that will never end.
