There’s no denying that Star Wars is one of the most iconic movie franchises of all time. From its inception in 1977, it has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions of fans around the world. But with the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga in 2019, many fans are wondering if there are any plans for another Star Wars movie.
The State of Star Wars
Before we dive into whether or not there will be another Star Wars movie, let’s take a look at where things currently stand in the Star Wars universe. In addition to the nine main saga films, there have been a number of spin-off movies and TV shows that have expanded on the Star Wars universe.
One of the most successful spin-off movies was Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which told the story of how the rebels stole the plans for the Death Star. Another successful spin-off was Solo: A Star Wars Story, which explored Han Solo’s backstory.
On the TV side, there have been several animated series such as The Clone Wars and Rebels that have been well-received by fans. And most recently, The Mandalorian has been a huge hit on Disney+, with its second season currently airing.
The Future of Star Wars Films
So with all this content already out there, what’s next for Star Wars on the big screen? Well, it turns out that Lucasfilm has several projects in development.
One of these projects is a movie being directed by Taika Waititi, who is known for his work on Thor: Ragnarok and Jojo Rabbit. There aren’t many details about this movie yet, but Waititi has said that it will be “fresh” and “different.”
Another project in development is a trilogy being created by Rian Johnson, who directed The Last Jedi. Again, not much is known about this trilogy yet, but Johnson has said that he wants to focus on “new characters and new places.”
There are also rumors that there may be a movie focusing on Obi-Wan Kenobi, with Ewan McGregor reprising his role from the prequel trilogy. And there have been reports of a potential movie or series about the character of Ahsoka Tano, who was first introduced in The Clone Wars.
So to answer the question of whether or not there will be another Star Wars movie – the answer is yes! While we don’t know exactly what these movies will be about or when they will be released, it’s clear that Lucasfilm has big plans for the future of the franchise.
For fans who are worried about the quality of these upcoming movies, it’s worth noting that Lucasfilm seems to be taking a more cautious approach after the mixed reception to some recent Star Wars films. With talented directors like Taika Waititi and Rian Johnson involved, there’s reason to be optimistic about what’s to come.
Overall, while it may be some time before we see another Star Wars movie in theaters, it’s clear that the franchise is far from over. And for fans who can’t get enough of a galaxy far, far away, there’s already plenty of content out there to explore.
