  1. Although the Skywalker Saga has drawn to a close (for now at least - it's not like we haven't heard that before), there is still plenty going on in our favourite galaxy far far away. As with our previous list, we'll be keeping this article updated with information about upcoming Star Wars movie and TV releases as the information becomes available. Whether you are looking forward to seeing a new Star Wars spin-off movie at the cinema, a new live-action Star Wars show, or the latest Star Wars animated adventure on Disney+, we've got your back! Last updated: January 2020. Disney+ Star Wars shows coming soon While Star Wars takes a break from the big screen following the release of The Rise of Skywalker, there's a lot going on over on the new Disney+ streaming service, and Lucasfilm are keen to continue the momentum that has been started from the successful launch of The Mandalorian in November 2019. The Clone Wars Season 7 - 17 Feb 2020 The Clone Wars was a big hit from 2008 to 2014, with a feature length animated film and the series itself starting on Cartoon Network. When Lucasfilm was acquired by Disney the much loved series was put on indefinite hold leaving several threads dangling, such as the Siege of Mandalore and the unresolved issues between Ahsoka Tano and her former master, Anakin Skywalker. In 2018, showrunner Dave Filoni announced that The Clone Wars would return for its conclusion, but it's currently unclear whether the show has a future beyond season 7. The Mandalorian Season 2 - October 2020 The Mandalorian launched with Disney+ in November 2019 and was touted as following a lone gunslinger across the "wild west" of the Star Wars universe, but it turned out to be so much more. With "Baby Yoda" stealing the hearts of fans and generating a thousand memes, it's no surprise that shortly after the end of the first season Jon Favreau announced that the Mandalorian would return to our screens soon. The October 2020 date was confirmed by Bob Iger during a quarterly earnings call in February. Untitled Cassian Andor series - Expected 2021 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was the first of the Star Wars spin-off, or "anthology" movies, and it proved to be a hit with fans in 2016. The film told the story of a band of rebels who stole the plans for the first Death Star. The Cassian Andor series announced in November 2018 will serve as a prequel to Rogue One and is said to be a "spy thriller" following the exploits of the titular shady rebel and his sidekick K-2SO before that fateful mission. Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk will return as their respective characters from Rogue One. Untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi series - TBA It was either the best kept secret or the worst kept secret in Star Wars, depending on your point of view. For years rumours circulated that Ewan McGregor would reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi, but it wasn't until October 2019 that anything was officially confirmed. Little is known about the series so far, but McGregor has said that we can expect to see how the former Jedi Master copes with the destruction of the Jedi Order and the betrayal of his closest friend. Confirmed Star Wars movie releases In April 2019 Disney confirmed the release dates for three new Star Wars movies, although no further details were given at the time. The status of these projects is currently unknown, and the information available has changed several times since then. We wouldn't be at all surprised if these dates got changed or the projects were reworked altogether. Untitled Star Wars movie - 16 Dec 2022 Bob Iger confirmed in April 2019 that this film would be by Game of Thrones producers David Benioff & DB Weiss, but they later left the project citing an increased workload due to contractual obligations with Netflix. No further details have been released. Given the pairs experience on the TV adaptation of Game of Thrones there were rumours that this was set to be something akin to the Knights of the Old Republic video game series. Untitled Star Wars movie - 20 Dec 2024 Nothing is known about this project yet, although The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson was once said to be returning to Star Wars for a series of films, and this has as of yet not been confirmed to be cancelled. Untitled Star Wars movie - 18 Dec 2026 Again, no details have been released for this project yet, so stay tuned and we'll update this article as we discover more information.
  2. Before Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released, it was announced that the director was already working on a new Star Wars trilogy of his own, that would be set apart from The Skywalker Saga, much like Rogue One. However, after the mixed reaction to his stab at the main series, and the subsequent lackluster box office performance of Solo, things went quiet on the anthology film front. Recently, Johnson was caught on the red carpet at the Toronto Film Festival, and was asked about his Star Wars project: We’ll see. I am still talking to Lucasfilm and they are figuring out what they are doing. We’ll see what happens. I’ll be thrilled if it happens. Rian Johnson This has cast further doubt on the fate of his trilogy, which was expected to pick up on a few of the seeds sown in The Last Jedi. In May 2019 several Star Wars film release dates were confirmed by Disney CEO Bob Iger, with the next spin-off film being pencilled in for 16 December 2022 and confirmed to be the David Benioff & DB Weiss project which is heavily rumoured to be set in the Old Republic era. Lucasfilm and Disney have yet to make any official statement about the status of Johnson's future in the Star Wars franchise, nor have they confirmed any details for the Star Wars movies set for release in 2024 and 2026.
  3. Disney have revealed a schedule which pinpoints the movie release dates across their vast empire of brands, including Star Wars. Three Star Wars movies have been assigned release dates, but no further information accompanies the untitled movies. The movies are set for release in 2022, 2024, and 2026, which is a distinctive enough pattern that it isn't too much of a stretch to speculate that these are the Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy that was announced back in 2017. See also: Star Wars Movie Release Schedule Rian Johnson's last foray into Star Wars was the divisive second episode of the sequel trilogy, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and it is widely expected that his trilogy will pick up on some of the unresolved threads from that film. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will release this December, leaving us with a three-year gap before the next Star Wars film hits the big screen.
  4. Actress Daisy Ridley has told interviewers that the script she has seen for Star Wars Episode VIII looks "very good", as preparation begins for the start of principle photography. When asked by Variety.com if she had read the script for the sequel to The Force Awakens, Ridley, who portrays Rey in the movie, responded with "I have. It’s very good; very good" but refused to give any further clues as to what may happen in the movie. Some scenes have allegedly already been filmed for Episode VIII; notably on the Irish island Skellig Michael which we see at the end of The Force Awakens, and main filming is due to begin in January 2016 in order to meet the May 2017 release date Lucasfilm/Disney have set. Pinewood Studio has already revealed that they plan on shooting down any drones that are sent to spy on filming of the new movie, so we can expect a similar level of secrecy for the sequel. Rian Johnson is the director for Episode VIII and is also involved with the script for Episode IX. Johnson's recent work includes the gritty time-travel-ish film Looper, and it is reasonable to expect VII to be darker than it's predecessor in the same way that The Empire Strikes Back was darker than A New Hope. Returning for the next instalment are a host of familiar faces from The Force Awakens; Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), John Boyega (Finn), and Daisy Ridley (Rey) have all been confirmed, along with Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker). It is also expected that Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke), Domhnall Gleeson’s (General Hux), will all be making a reappearance and actor Benicio Del Toro has already been confirmed as being newly cast for the sequel, although it is currently unknown what role this is.
