Alright, so this article is to address any sequel possibilities for the big "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" action flick that just hit theaters, nationwide, yesterday, December 16th, 2016. Thanks to folks over at Collider and their sources, we got some pretty good and clear insight into this. I actually haven't watched the movie yet, but I plan on seeing it, today. What can I say? I'm a Saturday guy. I've never been much for big Friday night premieres.

We have pretty good confirmation here

Anyways, preparing this article did definitely spoil the ending for me, but that has never really bothered me, because I've always found that seeing what leads up to the ending and how everything gets played out, to be the most entertaining. With all that said, lets get into why this movie is probably not going to the get sequel treatment. Well, for starters, the Lucasfilm president ,Kathleen Kennedy, and reps for the castmembers, have all gone on record, confirming that there isn't going to be a 2nd chapter to this one. So, we can definitely put that to rest.

Everyone is dead,so....

It turns out that in the movie, all the all the main characters get killed off, even the leading woman: Felicity Jones aka Jyn Erso. Apparently, she gets killed, along with Cassian Andor when the Death Star blows up the Imperial base. So, that offers up even more confirmation that there's absolutely no chance that this film will ever see a part 2. However, there's one little caveat that's being talked about around the net that throws a slight wrench into that conclusion, at least , for one of the characters.

Felicity Jones' option debacle

The Hollywood Reporter, mentioned in a recent article that the lead chick, Felicity Jones, was actually given a sequel option in her contract, which means they could use it to bring her back in some capacity if they wanted to. It leaves the door open for her character to possibly return in some fashion or other production, though highly unlikely. There have been some speculations thrown out there that Felicity could be used in a young Luke Skywalker stand-alone film in the future, or maybe a stand-alone Jyn Erso film. However, the Collider folks, pointed out that both of these ideas would be very poor at best.

The sequel option is probably null and void now

They believe that the sequel option was thrown into Felicity's contract when there was possibilities of them maybe keeping her character alive in the Rogue One film, but since that didn't happen, it's way more likely to think that the option is as good as being null and void at this point. On the other hand, these movies are still make-believe at the end of the day, so if they wanted to, they could make up some elaborate scheme that, somehow, brings her back.
