The Star Wars franchise has been a fan favorite since the release of the first movie in 1977. With nine movies already released, fans are eagerly anticipating the possibility of a 10th Star Wars movie. But is there really going to be one?
The Current State of Star Wars
Star Wars has become a cultural phenomenon over the years. The franchise has expanded into books, comics, TV shows, and more. However, the future of Star Wars on the big screen is unclear.
The Sequel Trilogy
The most recent trilogy concluded in 2019 with “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” While it was a financial success, it received mixed reviews from fans and critics alike.
In addition to the main storyline movies, Star Wars has also released spin-off movies such as “Solo” and “Rogue One.” However, both movies underperformed at the box office.
Disney’s Plans for Star Wars
Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012 and has been responsible for producing all recent Star Wars content. In recent years, Disney has shifted its focus to producing original content for its streaming service Disney+. This includes TV shows such as “The Mandalorian,” which takes place within the Star Wars universe.
While there is no official announcement of a 10th Star Wars movie yet, Disney announced several new projects during their investor day presentation in December 2020. This includes a spin-off series based on fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano, as well as an upcoming movie directed by Taika Waititi.
While there is no official confirmation of a 10th Star Wars movie at this time, there are still plenty of reasons for fans to be excited about the future of the franchise. With new TV shows and movies in the works, Star Wars fans have much to look forward to.
