Star Wars Future Plans

Now we’re not smart enough to know the future, but we did find out that the next installment in the Star Wars franchise will be released in December 2019. And with fan anticipation high, we’ve put together some possible scenarios that might happen in the upcoming movies that could be a good idea to watch out for.

The sequel trilogy — 2015’s “The Force Awakens,” 2017’s “The Last Jedi” and 2019’s “The Rise of Skywalker” — wrapped up the main storyline of the Skywalker Saga. Standalone films “Rogue One” and “Solo” explored specific stories within that timeline, namely the group of Rebel spies stole the plans to the Death Star, and when a young Han Solo made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. Lucasfilm’s first Disney Plus series, “The Mandalorian,” refueled fans’ sense of adventure on the small screen, while animated series “Rebels” and “Resistance” explored other time periods not featured in the movies.

How It Fits Into the Emerging Star Wars Galaxy: As this is an anthology concerned with the distinctive styles of the participating animation studios, we’re not sure how it fits or even if it will be canon. With Disney+ uploading non-canon content like the Ewoks TV movies and Genndy Tartakovsky’s 2-D Clone Wars series in recent days, there is room for Visions to ruminate on the ideas of Star Wars without being bound to the state of the galaxy or Lucasfilm’s overall plans for ongoing stories. Although, with one of the episodes inspiring author Emma Mieko Candon’s upcoming novel, Star Wars Visions: Ronin, the program may yet prove to be a vital part of Star Wars.

With “The Bad Batch” now available on Disney Plus, a new, even larger wave of “Star Wars” content is starting to roll out onto streaming and into theaters. “The Mandalorian” serves as the foundation for a connected series of upcoming spin-offs such as “The Book of Boba Fett,” “Ahsoka” and “Rangers of the New Republic” that will all lead to a climactic story event. Ewan McGregor will be reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in his own limited series, while Cassian Andor from “Rogue One” and Lando Calrissian from “Solo” will have their own respective time in the spotlight. On the theatrical side, Patty Jenkins, Taika Waititi, Rian Johnson, Kevin Feige and J.D. Dillard are all developing their own films.

What We Know: Announced in the closing moments of The Mandalorian’s second season last winter, the program will follow Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) as he reclaims his place in the galactic underworld. Whether or not the the series begins from the scene of him taking over Jabba the Hutt’s old palace, which we saw in The Mandalorian, remains to be seen. Along for the ride is Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen), who owes a debt to Fett and whose own story seems to be spread across the various Star Wars shows – she is also scheduled to make an appearance on The Bad Batch (with Wen providing her voice). Behind the camera, El Mariachi director Robert Rodriguez – who directed Fett’s full return to Star Wars in a second-season Mandalorian episode – joins executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni as an Executive Producer and creative force in the story. According to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, the series will debut in December, although it is possible the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may delay that plan. That said, filming began in November 2020 and seems to have occurred without incident. (Source: editorial.rottentomatoes.com)
