- Disney, Lucasfilm
Though Disney and Lucasfilm have been adamant that “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is a one-and-done film and that there will be no sequel, one actor has a clause in her contract that could change things.
The movie’s star, Felicity Jones, has a sequel option in her contract, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Now, whether that will ever become a reality is anyone’s guess. But having Jones available opens up some possibilities.
There’s the upcoming young Han Solo movie, which is to take place before the events of “Rogue One,” so perhaps Han and Lando bump into Jyn (Jones) in their travels. THR points out that there’s talk of a standalone young Luke Skywalker movie, so perhaps she shows up there.
A lot of this depends on the performance of “Rogue One” in theaters. The sequel option becomes more in play if the movie becomes a box-office hit and if the fan base really takes to Jyn. And don’t be surprised if another character from “Rogue One” suddenly appears in a future movie.
Droid K-2SO (voiced by Alan Tudyk) has quickly become a fan favorite and could easily be plugged into a movie if needed.
