Kathleen Kennedy Hints On 'Rogue One' Sequel But Disputed By Director Gareth Edwards?
"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" is about to tell its tale to moviegoers next month, but as intended, it will be a standalone film. "Rogue One," as clarified by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, in this movie specifically, the destination will be different.
Kennedy insisted that "Rogue One" is an independent story and it is not contemplated that there will be "Rogue Two." Excitement can actually result from the way she was explaining that. She's not closing doors. A sequel can still happen if ever.
Director Gareth Edwards, on the other hand, opens his heart out by saying that if "Rogue One" is designed to have a sequel, George Lucas is the best director for it. He added that "Rogue TwoI will not be necessary because the conclusion is already predictable. The Death Star intends to return to Rebellion, Luke Skywalker destroys the space station, and the saga evolves."
If that is the case, the new characters of "Rogue One" are restricted there. They might not make it to another movie as the plots are mostly depicting their end. They can still be revived but more appropriately for a novel like the "Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel," as per Cinema Blend.
Felicity Jones (Jyn Erson), Diego Luna (Cassian Andor), Ben Mendelssohn (Orson Krennic), Donnie Yen (Chirrut Îmwe), Jiang Wen (Baze Malbus), Mads Mikkelsen (Galen Erso), Alan Tudyk (K-2SO), Riz Ahmed (Bodhi Rook), and Forest Whitaker (Saw Gererra) are the main players in this "Rogue One" film.
Kennedy confirms that her "Rogue Two" joke will not happen even if "Rogue One" hits the box office hard. John Knoll of Lucasfilm Creatives discloses that the movie is a prequel to "Star Wars: A New Hope." It will be showing publicly on December 16, then we will know how the producers can maximize this part of the Star Wars universe, according to The Wrap.
