Is a 'Rogue One' Sequel Happening? Filmmakers Reveal Plans

The highly anticipated movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is about to hit theaters and something fans will want to know is if a sequel is in the works!

Well, the movie’s creative team is speaking out about plans for more films in the franchise.

Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm and the producer of the movie, told Empire magazine that there will NOT be a sequel to Rogue One.

Gareth Edwards, the director of Rogue One, says that a “sequel will be directed by George Lucas,” referring to the movie Star Wars: A New Hope. As you probably know, Rogue One is a prequel to the Episode IV.

The upcoming movie is a war film and fans are speculating that not many of the characters, possibly even Felicity Jones‘ Jyn Erso, will survive in the end. We will have to wait until the movie is released on December 16 to find out!
