A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away… money was to be made by Disney from spin offs of the famed Lucasfilm enterprise..
The latest battle sequence being planned: A sequel to ROGUE ONE, the prequel to NEW HOPE, which was a sequel to the first three films that were made more than a decade after the originals..
Explain that to someone without stopping..
…now without spilling the beans much for the slight chance you still did not see the ending sequence of ROGUE ONE (or the beginning sequence of NEW HOPE) … I am somewhat shocked to think that anyone would still be alive after the disastrous ending to the ROGUE ONE team.. but Apparently, a couple of the new faces survived the Rebels’ attack, and they’re going to come back for another spinoff film..
Meanwhile… Luke Skywalker is going to simultaneously come back.. as is Obi Wan.. and lots of others.
I fear that this is a bit of Empire overload.. too much of a great thing makes it a watered down version of meaningless notmuch-ism..
There was a press release put out Friday from Disney:
The Rebellion continues! StarWars.com is pleased to announce that development has begun on a Rogue One sequel. The Star Wars story team isn’t ready to share exactly what they have in store or when the Rogue One sequel will arrive in theaters but fans attending Star Wars Celebration 2017 might keep their eyes peeled for an early tease!
But… we can confirm that Felicity Jones and Dieg Luna will reprise their roles as Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor!
The untitled Rogue One sequel joins an exciting slate of new adventures in the Galaxy Far, Far Away coming to fans in the coming years. We can’t wait to share more info with you.
StarWars.com. All Star Wars, all the time.
And in box offices? All Star Wars all of the time.
ROGUE ONE was actually my favorite STAR WARS story of all ..I loved the way it could be paired with the original NEW HOPE chapter.. I love how Darth Vader makes himself known, and seeing him in it was like seeing him for the first time ever.
…..but overloading is coming..
The rebel alliance is going to have a tough time keeping up with the mountain pressure of voluminous scripts.
Fingers crossed that Disney won’t ruin this..
