Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first in Disney’s planned “Anthology Series” of spin-off films. The series will continue with the currently untitled Han Solo prequel movie due in 2018.

It was announced in July that rising star Alden Ehrenreich has been cast as a younger version of the character made famous by Harrison Ford. A third Anthology Series film will follow in 2020, Disney has since confirmed.

In May, it was reported that Disney had ordered weeks of costly reshoots on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “the goal of the reshoots will be to lighten the mood” as right now Rogue One has the “feel of a war movie”.
