    To be fair, they're saying they want a sequel to their own marketing campaign - not a sequel to Rogue One that they can base another marketing campaign around. There's a difference.

    I know a lot about marketing but how could it be pulled off unless there's a R1 campaign adhering to post ANH.

    I think there's an easy fix - change the focus from Rogue One to Rogue Squadron. Just have the drivers be X-wing pilots and you're good to go.

    The only way they'd do that is if the game came out in a window that wasn't too close to a Star Wars movie (and since the game's set to hit at the end of the year, that's a "no", I think). Movies are bigger hauls than games are - most of the time, anyway.

    No, it's more like integrating the ad campaign with an existing element in the Star Wars canon as opposed to forcing a connection (IE: developing a "Solo" car model and waiting for two years to release it).

    Next SW spin off:

    Rogue Gun:
    Poe Dameron = Maverick
    Han Solo = Viper
    Wedge Antillies = Jester
    Character played by Ben Foster = Iceman
    Character played by Toby Kebbell = Goose
    Character played by Jessica Chastain = Charlie

    Directed by Jon Favreau (maybe?)

    really good critical analysis of RO that I missed. It's a clickbait title but actually a really substantive analysis.

    He can't hear you 'cause he got banned.

    I don't think Pao's death is explicitly shown, but the latest he would have died would be when the Death Star fired upon the planet.
