Star Wars producer Kathleen Kennedy confirms there will be no sequel to Rogue One
Star Wars producer Kathleen Kennedy has ruled out the possibility of a sequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the new Star Wars spin-off.
Speaking to Empire, Kennedy, along with director Gareth Edwards, the pair confirmed that the movie will be self-contained and there are no plans for a follow-up, regardless of box office performance.
The movie stars The Theory Of Everything's Felicity Jones, The Last King Of Scotland's Forest Whitaker, Milk's Diego Luna, Casino Royale star Mads Mikkelsen, Dragon's Donnie Yen, The Sun Also Rises' Jiang Wen, Firefly's Alan Tudyk and Exodus: Gods And Kings' Ben Mendelsohn and has been directed by Godzilla director Gareth Edwards.
The story is set in between the events of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope and follows a band of rebel fighters who come together to steal the Death Star before it can be used to enforce the Emperor's rule.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be released into UK cinemas on December 15th.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out now on DVD and Blu-Ray and the Blu-ray is accompanied by a string of bonus features.
As well as the six deleted scenes it had previously been revealed would be arriving with the Blu-Ray, the package also includes a documentary on the making of the movie titled "Secrets Of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey" as well as a recording of the movie's table read.
It will also include a string of 'making of' features including a focus on the making of BB-8 and the movie's new creatures, a look at the recording of John Williams' score and a feature on the changes made to reboot the Star Wars franchise.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens grossed over two billion dollars at the box office and is available to order on DVD and Blu-Ray on the right-hand side of the page.
