    In a new interview with Empire, Kennedy states (via Slashfilm) that the movie she jokingly refers to as Rogue Two won't be happening. The magazine also quotes director Gareth Edwards as saying that if the film did have a sequel, it "will be directed by George Lucas." Rogue One is set shortly before the events of Lucas' original Star Wars.

She added that the movie's producers have used the paintings of American Old West artist Frederic Remington, specifically his use of primary colors, as a reference point for the "look and feel of the film."

    Advance tickets for Rogue One went on sale on Monday. Variety is reporting that the movie has netted the second-highest first day of pre-sales in US box office history. Box office estimates peg it at making $130 million or more for its December 16-18 opening weekend in the US.
