Star Wars: The Force Awakens kicked off the Disney era of Star Wars movies. Six, Seven, and Eight will be the 3rd trilogy in the Star Wars franchise, but it’s hardly the end. With the Disney acquisition came some one-off movies (starting with Rogue One) and a recent announcement a new trilogy after episode 9.
With the current trilogy we’re picking off where A New Hope left off, but some years later with new leads. In this trilogy, we follow Rey, Finn, and Poe in the Rian Johnson-directed The Last Jedi as well as the Han Solo standalone film and a third stand-alone film by 2020.
So we decided to create a page where we will keep track of all the upcoming Star Wars movie releases. Right now we don’t have all the dates, but as we get more information, we will be adding to this page so stay tuned.
December 15, 2017 – Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi
Starring: Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Domhnall Gleeson, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran
Synopsis: Lucasfilm and Disney have kept the story of the next major Star Wars instalment very close to their chest. We don’t expect to hear much regarding story details until much closer to release.
May 25, 2018 – Star Wars: Han Solo
Directors: Phil Lord and Chris Miller
Writers: Lawrence and Jon Kasdan
Starring: Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Phoebe Mary Waller-Bridge and Woody Harrelson.
Synopsis: “The story focuses on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley.” It sounds like we’ll be getting a Han Solo in his late teens/early 20s, as well.
May 24, 2019 – Star Wars: Episode IX
Director: Colin Trevorrow
Writer: Rian Johnson
TBA – Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi
A standalone movie focusing on Obi-Wan Kenobi has been rumored for a long time, and it sounds like it’s finally happening. Stephen Daldry is in early talks to direct. It’s unclear if Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as the Jedi Master, but the actor has said in the past that he’d be happy to return for another movie.
TBA – Star Wars: Boba Fett
For a while, it seemed like Boba Fett was going to be the second standalone Star Wars film, but this is no longer the case after director Josh Trank was forced to drop out of the project amidst some bad publicity following the turbulent production of Fantastic Four at 20th Century Fox. Only time will tell if this movie is resurrected or not.
TBA – Star Wars X, XI, XII
Earlier announcements by Disney said they were working on a third trilogy, but whether or not these will be Star Wars X, XI, and XII is yet to be seen since many expect it may end up being the beginning of a new trilogy in a different part of the Star Wars canon, but until Disney announces more concrete plans which won’t likely happen until before the ninth Star Wars movie or perhaps after we’re in for a long weight. In the meantime, if you have any predictions for this trilogy leave your comments below.
