As of Rogue One's first week in theaters, the film has grossed an impressive $420 million globally, $220 million of that being earned domestically. After such a profitable release and a plethora of positive reviews LucasFilm has tapped George Lucas to direct the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story sequel! Based on a screenplay written as well by Lucas and starring Hollywood favorites Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, the sequel will introduce audiences to the iconic characters Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia and many more as they combat the tyrannical Empire.

The Rogue One sequel titled A New Hope will arrive in theaters on May 25th, 1977.

At the time of writing this post, I was laughing to myself cause I thought it was pretty witty. It's really sad to hear about the passing of Carrie Fisher though, but I feel it will only make us cherish the original films even more.

I'm glad you guys enjoyed the piece, though! I rarely post satire articles as I don't wish to fool anybody - but I couldn't pass this opportunity up.

Good one Chris, and very theatrical. First you had me on the edge of my seat - gasping ... in dread, and then close to tears by mentioning Carrie.
