After the release of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” in December 2019, fans have been eagerly anticipating the next installment in the Star Wars franchise. However, there has been some confusion and speculation about whether or not there will be another Star Wars movie after the conclusion of the Skywalker saga. Let’s take a closer look at what we know so far.
Disney’s Plans for Star Wars
Since acquiring Lucasfilm in 2012, Disney has made it clear that they plan to continue producing Star Wars movies for years to come. In fact, they have already announced several upcoming projects set in the Star Wars universe.
One of the most highly anticipated projects is “The Mandalorian,” a live-action TV series created by Jon Favreau. The series takes place after the events of “Return of the Jedi” and follows a lone bounty hunter as he navigates the dangerous outer reaches of the galaxy.
Obi-Wan Kenobi Series
Another upcoming project is a series focused on Obi-Wan Kenobi, set to star Ewan McGregor reprising his role from the prequel trilogy. The series will take place eight years after “Revenge of the Sith” and will follow Kenobi as he watches over a young Luke Skywalker on Tatooine.
Cassian Andor Series
Disney+ will also be home to another live-action series set in the Star Wars universe, this time focusing on Rebel spy Cassian Andor from “Rogue One.” Diego Luna is set to reprise his role as Andor, with Alan Tudyk returning as K-2SO.
The Future of Star Wars Movies
While Disney has announced several upcoming TV projects, they have been relatively quiet about their plans for future Star Wars movies. In fact, the only confirmed movie project at this time is “Rogue Squadron,” set to be directed by Patty Jenkins and scheduled for release in December 2023.
What About the Skywalker Saga?
Many fans have been wondering if Disney has plans to continue the story of Rey, Finn, and Poe after the conclusion of the Skywalker saga. So far, there have been no official announcements about a sequel or spin-off featuring these characters.
Speculation and Rumors
Despite the lack of official announcements, there have been plenty of rumors and speculation about what’s next for Star Wars on the big screen. Some reports suggest that Disney is planning a new trilogy set in a different part of the galaxy, while others speculate that they will focus on standalone movies featuring fan-favorite characters like Ahsoka Tano or Lando Calrissian.
While there has been no official announcement about another Star Wars movie after “The Rise of Skywalker,” it’s clear that Disney has big plans for the franchise. With several upcoming TV series and one confirmed movie project, fans can rest assured that they will be able to enjoy new adventures in a galaxy far, far away for years to come.
