Disney have unveiled that three new Star Wars films are on the way during this year's Star Wars Celebration event! Not only that, the new films will issue in a new era of Star Wars - building off of the Skywalker saga which concluded with Episode 9 - The Rise of Skywalker.
Two of the three new films will be overseen by Logan director James Mangold and The Mandalorian co-creator, Dave Filoni. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy gave some insight to what their Star Wars films would be about:
James Mangold’s movie will tell the tale of the first Jedi to wield the Force and harness it as a liberating power in an era of chaos and oppression.
Dave Filoni’s movie will be about the escalating war between the Imperial Remnant and the fledgling New Republic, closing out the interconnected stories told in The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka, and other Disney+ series.
The third film will be directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and will take place 15 years after The Rise of Skywalker and will see Daisy Ridley reprise her role as Rey and it will tell the story of rebuilding the New Jedi Order and the powers that rise to tear it down.
Additional plot and cast details, as well as release dates have yet to be announced. As new details emerge we'll keep you posted! In the meantime, let us know what you think of the new direction Lucasfilm are taking Star Wars by sounding off in the comments below!
