Talking about how he got inspired to make the film, Gareth revealed that the idea for the film first emerged when he was on a date with his girlfriend in the Maldives back in 2004.
While Gareth was walking along the beach with his love, he spotted some fishermen struggling as they pulled out their net from the water. The director already imagined a giant tentacled monster trapped in the nets and visualize how the fishermen would react.
Right at the spot, he questioned his girlfriend,
"Watch these fishermen. Imagine there was a creature on their boat. Watch how they behave. It would be totally realistic."
And without surprise, his girlfriend nodded yes and said: "Yeah, it would."
Interestingly, Gareth's girlfriend has also been with Gareth while he was in route to making the famous spin-off of Star Wars.
Gareth, who is the son of Yvonne Edwards and Allan Edwards, grew up obsessed with galaxies and star. He was a fan of the "star wars" movies and had spent his childhood watching the same film again and again.
Interestingly, his girlfriend understood his obsession and surprised him with a tour to Tunisia, a place where the star wars' desert scenes were all filmed, for his 30th birthday.
Gareth and his girlfriend stayed up in the house where the lead actor from the star wars, Luke Skywalker grew up and spent quality time together.
After a decade of their visit to Tunisia, Gareth shooted “Rogue One” and amassed huge acclamation from his family, his fans, and colleagues.

With a supporting wife like figure and such talents in hand, Gareth is likely to garner more success in upcoming days.
