The Star Wars franchise has been a cultural phenomenon for over four decades. Fans of the series are eagerly awaiting the next installment of the epic space opera. In this article, we will take a closer look at what’s next for Star Wars and when we can expect to see it.
The Rise of Skywalker
The most recent Star Wars movie was released in December 2019. The Rise of Skywalker concluded the latest trilogy that began with The Force Awakens in 2015 and continued with The Last Jedi in 2017. The movie was directed by J.J. Abrams and featured a star-studded cast including Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac.
After The Rise of Skywalker, there was some uncertainty about where the franchise would go next. In early 2020, it was announced that Taika Waititi would be directing a new Star Wars movie. Waititi is known for his work on films like Thor: Ragnarok and Jojo Rabbit, as well as his role as the voice of IG-11 in The Mandalorian.
Unfortunately, there is no official release date for Waititi’s Star Wars movie yet. In fact, very little is known about the project beyond the fact that he will be directing it. This isn’t entirely surprising given Lucasfilm’s tendency to keep details about upcoming projects tightly under wraps until they are ready to share them with the public.
Other Upcoming Projects
While we don’t know much about Waititi’s Star Wars movie yet, there are other projects in development that fans can look forward to. One of these is an untitled spin-off series featuring Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Another highly anticipated project is a new season of The Mandalorian. The first season of the series premiered on Disney+ in 2019 and was a huge hit with audiences. The second season is set to premiere in October 2020 and will feature new characters as well as the return of fan-favorite Baby Yoda.
In conclusion, while we don’t know exactly when the next Star Wars movie will be released or what it will be about, fans can rest assured that there are plenty of exciting projects in the works. From Taika Waititi’s new movie to the upcoming season of The Mandalorian, there is plenty to look forward to in the Star Wars universe. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available!
