Even though we’re in the midst of a golden age for the Star Wars series, there are currently three major film projects in development that will each tell an epic story set in a distinct era of the franchise.
Kathleen Kennedy, accompanied by Daisy Ridley on stage at Star Wars Celebration Europe, announced the directors for the next three Star Wars films: James Mangold, Dave Filoni, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. Kennedy stated that Mangold’s picture will center on “the dawn of the Jedi,” while Filoni’s feature will center on the New Republic and will have direct connections to streaming series like Ahsoka, The Mandalorian, and The Book of Boba Fett. Neither the titles nor the release dates were disclosed.
Most intriguingly, after the events of The Rise of Skywalker, Ridley will reprise her role as Rey Skywalker in Obaid-Chinoy’s film, where she will establish a brand new Jedi Order. Star Wars fans may rest assured that they will be fed (hopefully well) for the foreseeable future, even if nobody knows exactly when these new films will be released or if there might be another proper trilogy in the works.
