Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the latest installment in the Star Wars franchise and has been touted as the final chapter in the Skywalker saga. Fans have eagerly awaited this movie to see how it would bring closure to a story that began over 40 years ago.
But, is The Rise of Skywalker truly the last movie of the saga? Let’s explore.
What is the Skywalker Saga?
The Skywalker saga is a storyline that began with the original Star Wars movie released in 1977, now known as Episode IV: A New Hope. The story follows Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo as they battle Darth Vader and his evil empire. Over the years, more movies were added to the series, including prequels that told the story of Anakin Skywalker’s transformation into Darth Vader.
Is The Rise of Skywalker really the end?
Yes, and no. While The Rise of Skywalker marks the end of this particular storyline involving Luke Skywalker and his family, it doesn’t mean that we’ve seen the last of Star Wars movies. In fact, Disney has already announced plans for more films set within this universe.
Future Star Wars Movies
Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that there will be more Star Wars movies after The Rise of Skywalker. However, he has also stated that they will take a break from releasing new movies for a few years to focus on television shows set within this universe.
One such show is Disney+’s The Mandalorian which premiered in November 2019. This show takes place five years after Return of the Jedi and follows a bounty hunter on his adventures across space.
Cassian Andor Series
Another upcoming show is a prequel series based on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story character Cassian Andor. Diego Luna will reprise his role as Andor, a rebel spy who helped steal the plans for the Death Star.
While The Rise of Skywalker may be the last movie in the Skywalker saga, it doesn’t mean that we’ve seen the end of Star Wars movies. Disney has big plans for this universe and will continue to release new content for fans to enjoy. Whether it’s through movies or television shows, we can expect to see plenty more from a galaxy far, far away.
