The hype around the latest Star Wars movie, ‘The Rise of Skywalker,’ has been immense. Fans have been eagerly waiting to see how the epic saga concludes, and whether this marks the end of the franchise altogether. So, is ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ really the last Star Wars movie?
What We Know So Far
As of now, there is no official statement from Disney or Lucasfilm confirming that this will be the final Star Wars movie. However, there have been rumors circulating that suggest otherwise.
Many fans and industry insiders believe that ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ will be the final chapter in the Skywalker saga, which has spanned over 40 years. This would mean that we may not see any more movies featuring characters like Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia or Darth Vader.
However, this does not necessarily mean that there will be no more Star Wars movies at all. In fact, Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that they are working on new Star Wars projects beyond the Skywalker saga.
While details about these new projects are still scarce, we do know that Disney is planning to release more Star Wars content on their streaming platform Disney+. The platform already hosts ‘The Mandalorian,’ a live-action series set in the Star Wars universe.
Additionally, there have been reports that a new trilogy of films is in development with Rian Johnson, who directed ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi.’ These films will reportedly take place in a different part of the galaxy and feature all-new characters.
In summary, while ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ may mark the end of an era for fans of the original trilogy and its characters, it does not necessarily mean it’s the end for Star Wars as a whole. With new projects already in development and plans for more content on Disney+, it seems that the franchise will continue to live on.
So, while we say goodbye to the Skywalker saga with ‘The Rise of Skywalker,’ we can look forward to exciting new adventures in the Star Wars universe.
