There were rumours of a second Rogue One movie, but I can't see how
they could make one (they killed everyone at the end!Wink ... unless it's
a prequel about Jyn Erso, but then it's not really "Rogue One".

They could basically re-make it using a different set of characters
going "rogue", but that would be just as stupid as JarJar Abrams' lazy

Harrison Ford isn't listed in teh cast, so it's unlikely, thankfully,
that Han Solo returns ... although there is another ridiculously stupid
(and un-Star Wars like) rumour floating around that Episode 9 involves
time travel to go back and rescue Han. Mind you, I wouldn't be at all
surprised by whatever idiocy JarJar Abrams shovels into this mess he's
made of the Franchise. :-\

We've already had the Ewoks ... they were called Porgs. ;-)
