What does the Star Wars saga have in store for us in the coming years?
After 5 new feature films under the direction of Disney, Star Wars take a well-deserved break on the big screen. Yes The Ascension of Skywalker came to conclude the saga started in 1977, the firm with big ears is not done with Star Wars however. Three new films are planned, in 2022, 2024 and 2026. This trilogy, which has no director yet, will explore a new period in the history of the galaxy, that of the High Republic. It is rumored that it is Laeta Kalogridis who will be writing the films, after having worked on Altered Carbon. It would have replaced the creators of Game Of Thrones, D.B Weiss and David Benioff who were announced at the head of the project in 2019. The two writers of Game Of Thrones have signed a contract with Netflix for new content.
Rian Johnson is also expected to return behind the camera, this time for a trilogy. The director of The Last Jedi, announced that a project was entrusted to him without telling us much more. He should transport us to the far reaches of the galaxy and follow the adventures of new characters. For the rest, the secret is well kept at Disney. We also don’t know when the director’s return will take place, but there is no doubt that the firm will give us more information in due time.
The future of Star Wars is certainly not all traced on the big screen, but the firm seems to have great plans for its new platform. At the launch of Disney +, she unveiled the first live-action series: The Mandalorian. A successful outing which should be confirmed with the second season. While it has only been available in France for a few weeks, the series will return next November for a second burst of episodes. Jon Favreau’s series opens the way to several other Disney + productions such as the series on Obi-Wan Kenobi. The shooting should start next January and the series will certainly be broadcast on our screens in 2022. If we do not know exactly which period it will explore, we already know that we will be dealing with Ewan McGregor. The actor will again embody the character, more than 20 years after the release of the Phantom Menace. He will not be the only actor to make a transition to the small screen since a series on Cassian Andor is also planned. Diego Luna should again lend his features to the resistant for a spin-off of Rogue one. The film released in 2016 caused a sensation with fans who considered it for many as the best for a long time. The series is slated to hit our screens next year and filming is set to start this year. It remains to be seen whether the epidemic has not delayed the plans of the big-eared firm. Finally, we learned a few days ago that Star Wars will soon be combined with the feminine. Disney is preparing a series led by a female cast, the plot of which will be signed by Leslye Headland, co-creator of the Netflix Russian Doll series.
Star Wars has not finished invading our screens and on May 4, this is the perfect opportunity to plunge back into the saga of Georges Lucas. Disney has got hold of one of the most profitable sagas in history and does not intend to stop there. We should therefore expect to see many productions on Disney +, but also in theaters. Hopefully the public will be there, especially since the controversial Skywalker Ascension. “May the 4th” be with us.
