With the release of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”, fans are left wondering if this is truly the end of the beloved franchise. Many are left asking, “Is this the last Star Wars movie?”
The Future of Star Wars
The answer is no, it is not the end. While “The Rise of Skywalker” marked the end of the Skywalker saga, Lucasfilm has already announced plans for future films and television shows set in the Star Wars universe.
1. The Mandalorian: This Disney+ original series takes place five years after “Return of the Jedi” and follows a lone bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy.
2. Obi-Wan Kenobi Series: Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in an upcoming Disney+ series that takes place eight years after “Revenge of the Sith”.
3. Cassian Andor Series: Diego Luna will reprise his role as rebel spy Cassian Andor in a Disney+ prequel series to “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”.
4. Untitled Trilogy: Rian Johnson, director of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, has been tapped to create a new trilogy set in a different part of the galaxy with all new characters.
The Legacy Continues
Despite concerns that Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm would tarnish the legacy of George Lucas’ original trilogy, it’s clear that Star Wars is alive and well. With new projects on the horizon and a dedicated fan base that spans generations, it’s safe to say that we haven’t seen the last of this iconic franchise.
The Final Word
So while “The Rise of Skywalker” may mark an end to one chapter in the Star Wars saga, it’s certainly not the end of the story. With exciting new projects on the horizon, fans can look forward to many more adventures in a galaxy far, far away.
