Star Wars Celebration is happening now and it has a lot of cool news! Lucasfilm told us about upcoming movies, including one with Daisy Ridley back as Rey. So now we know there are three Star Wars films coming soon!
The next Star Wars movie is set 15 years after The Rise of Skywalker, the last chapter in the Skywalker saga. This story will be focusing on Rey trying to start a new group of Jedi warriors. It’s being directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, who won an Oscar for movies like Ms. Marvel and Saving Face.
A new Star Wars movie, directed by James Mangold (known for Logan and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny), has been announced! The movie will tell about the beginnings of the ‘Force’ and the Jedi Knights. It would be set in a time period 25,000 years before all other movies from this franchise.
Dave Filoni finally gets to direct a live-action Star Wars movie. He has been with the franchise for a long time, directing The Clone Wars and working on multiple Disney+ shows such as The Mandalorian and Ahsoka. His upcoming movie will bring together the stories that were told in those shows, making them all more connected.
Disney and Lucasfilm weren’t too happy with how the last Star Wars movies (The Last Jedi, Solo and The Rise of Skywalker) were received, so they decided to not release a new film every year. They are now trying to create more Star Wars films with people such as Patty Jenkins (Rogue Squadron), David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (Game of Thrones creators), Rian Johnson (director of The Last Jedi) Taika Waititi and Kevin Feige (Marvel Studios head honcho).
Disney and Lucasfilm cancelled all their previous Star Wars projects and want these three new films to make the series popular again. But we’ll have to wait a couple of years before one of them comes out!
