She went on to say that they were “planning some great stuff” and that they would be making some announcements in the coming months.

The Success of The Mandalorian

While there may not be any official announcements regarding future films, the success of The Mandalorian has shown that there is still a huge demand for new and exciting Star Wars content. The show has been praised by fans and critics alike and has introduced new characters to the Star Wars universe.

Disney+, the streaming service that airs The Mandalorian, has already announced several new Star Wars shows in development, including Obi-Wan Kenobi with Ewan McGregor returning to reprise his role as the iconic Jedi Master.

Whether it’s on television or in theaters, one thing is certain: the Force will always be strong with Star Wars.
