I'm fascinated to see how they leave this one. Presumably Disney will want to keep their sequel options open, but it would be cool to see something with a complete (within obvious constraints) story.

I think the plan for the Stories are that they are intended to be standalone films.

looks pretty good tho i saw another bit with an ISD next to THE DEATH STAR WOT GOT BLEW UP IN ANH.

Spoiler tag for that? Seriously?

There can hardly be a person on the planet who doesn't know what the ending of that film is. ;)

But if Rogue One is a hit, how long will it remain standalone?  And will Disney take that risk by giving it a definite ending? I like Joe's suggestion for Rogues Two and Three.

I would watch another Ewoks movie.  I can see a few million kids also watching a movie about man-eating teddy bears - probably while their dads look annoyed by the fact that when they were kids, they thought the Ewoks were awesome but have since aligned with a revisionist consensus on the matter (see also: "George Lucas doesn't understand Star Wars.  Not like I do.").

I wouldn't change one bit of ROTJ, including the Ewoks.  They are a great 'in' to get my daughters watching the film.

Didn't quite get this at first but having seen a few more articles ....  Canary Wharf as a stand in for the Death Star?  Chortle!

And for your further delectation, check out the link here below.

http://www.irishtimes.com/culture/film/ewok-of-ages-a-star-wars-story-review-a-playfully-subversive-tour-de-force-1.2593942?mode=sample&auth-failed=1&pw-origin=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.irishtimes.com%2Fculture%2Ffilm%2Fewok-of-ages-a-star-wars-story-review-a-playfully-subversive-tour-de-force-1.2593942

I'll assume that was a belated April Fool. (Posting a link asking me to subscribe to the Irish Times, I mean, rather than the Ewok story)

Actually it was the Ewok story that was the April Fool's one. I wouldn't subscribe to any club that would have me as a member, lol.

Brother Ghost Dog!

Looks better than I expected but, while I enjoyed the last film, I can't shake the feeling that by the time they've churned out two or three more with increasingly minor tweaks in uniform and equipment, everyone will be crying out for something as distinctive as Phantom Menace.
