This isn’t something I thought was even on anybody’s radar but Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed there won’t be a sequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
We, ofcourse, know that such a film already exists in the form of Star Wars: A New Hope but its, erm, good to get confirmation from the head of Lucasfilm.
Speaking to Empire Magazine, Ms Kennedy said that plans for “Rogue Two” were not in the studio’s plans as Rogue One was always intended to be a self-contained film. Rogue One director Gareth Edwards clarified this further by saying if you were to have a sequel that “will be directed by George Lucas,” a reference to the first ever Star Wars film.
Glad we’ve sorted that out then!
Rogue One hits cinemas on December 16 and stars Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Alan Tudyk, and Riz Ahmed.
