Will There Ever Be a Star Wars Movie Again?

Star Wars is one of the most beloved franchises in movie history. From the original trilogy to the prequels to the latest sequels, fans around the world have eagerly awaited each new installment. However, with the conclusion of the Skywalker saga in 2019’s The Rise of Skywalker, many are left wondering: will there ever be a Star Wars movie again?

The Future of Star Wars

While The Rise of Skywalker was marketed as the conclusion to the Skywalker saga, it is not necessarily the end of Star Wars movies altogether. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has stated that there are future plans for Star Wars on both the big and small screens.

One upcoming project is a new trilogy from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. Johnson has been tasked with creating a completely original story set in the Star Wars universe. While little is known about this project at this time, Johnson has expressed excitement about exploring new corners of the galaxy far, far away.

Another upcoming project is a series overseen by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni called The Mandalorian. This series takes place between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens and follows a bounty hunter as he navigates life on the outer rim of the galaxy. The show has been a hit with fans and critics alike and has already been renewed for a second season.

The Challenges Facing Future Star Wars Movies

Despite these upcoming projects, there are still challenges facing future Star Wars movies. One major issue is fan fatigue. With so many movies released in such a short amount of time, some fans may be feeling burnt out on Star Wars content.

Another issue facing future movies is storytelling fatigue. While many fans enjoyed The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, some felt that these films relied too heavily on nostalgia and callbacks to previous movies rather than telling truly original stories.


While it remains to be seen when we will see the next Star Wars movie, it is clear that the franchise is far from over. With a new trilogy from Rian Johnson and the success of The Mandalorian, there are still plenty of stories to be told in a galaxy far, far away. However, it is up to Lucasfilm to find new and innovative ways to keep fans engaged and excited about the future of Star Wars.
