What Will the Next Star Wars Movie Be After Rise of Skywalker?

The Star Wars franchise has been a cultural phenomenon for over four decades now, and with the recent release of the final installment of the Skywalker Saga, fans are left wondering what’s next for the galaxy far, far away.

What We Know So Far

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed that there will indeed be more Star Wars movies in the future. However, she has also stated that they are taking a step back to evaluate where the franchise will go next. This means that there won’t be any new movies for a few years.

Possible Directions

The possibilities for where the Star Wars universe can go from here are endless. Here are some ideas of what we might see in future films:

The Old Republic Era

One of the most popular periods in Star Wars lore is the Old Republic era, which takes place thousands of years before the events of the original trilogy. This era was previously explored in video games and comics but never in a feature film. Fans have been clamoring for this era to be explored on the big screen, and it could offer a fresh take on Star Wars storytelling.

The High Republic Era

Another possible direction is to explore a new era entirely – one that hasn’t been seen before. The High Republic era takes place 200 years before The Phantom Menace and could offer an opportunity to introduce new characters and stories without being tied down to existing canon.


There’s also potential for spin-off movies featuring characters from previous films. For example, there have been rumors of an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie starring Ewan McGregor reprising his role from the prequels. Another possibility is a movie about fan-favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett.


While we don’t know exactly what the next Star Wars movie will be after Rise of Skywalker, we can rest assured that there will be more to come. Whether it’s exploring new eras or revisiting familiar characters, the Star Wars universe is vast and full of possibilities for future films. Whatever direction they choose to go in, fans will undoubtedly be excited for what’s to come.
