The Force Awakens brought Star Wars back to the big screen in 2015, and 2016's Rogue One also proved a big hit at the box office. Lucasfilm and Disney have big plans to continue the saga across all forms of media, but for many it is these blockbuster hits that we look forward to most of all.

2020 - Unknown Star Wars Story

Synopsis: This project has long been rumoured to be based on the story of fan-favourite bounty hunter Boba Fett, although nothing solid has been confirmed.
The first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was screened to convention goers at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando on 14 April 2017.
Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is the only only character with dialogue in the trailer, which also shows scenes of Rey practicing her lightsaber moves.
Although the trailer does not reveal much, Luke's words hint that he no longer believes that the Jedi should be the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy.
Captain Phasma was also shown, presumably meting out some Empire Strikes Back style retribution.
Kylo Renn appears to have dumped his helmet as we see it shattered on the floor, although the trailer alludes to him still being a major villain for the film.
General Leia Organa is also seen, confirming previous speculation that she would play a pivotal role in the film, guiding the Resistance forces.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled for release on 15 December 2017.
