Following the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga, Disney will release three new Star Wars movies starting in 2022.
Announced by Disney, each new film will be released on the pre-Christmas weekend every other year beginning 2022, meaning a new Star Wars film will come out in 2022, 2024 and 2026. These films have not yet been titled, but will most definitely exist outside of the nine numbered Skywalker Saga films.
The only upcoming Star Wars film we know for certain will be released is The Rise of Skywalker, which is coming to US theaters on December 20, 2019 and the UK on December 19. It’s possible all three of these films are part of The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson’s planned trilogy of Star Wars movies, which Johnson confirmed he was still working on as recently as February 2019.
There’s also the Star Wars project from D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, the executive producers and showrunners of Game of Thrones – which rumors suggest could take place during the Old Republic era.
Lucasfilm president Kathaleen Kennedy confirmed in April 2019 that the duo and Johnson are involved in plotting out the next Star Wars saga. The three-year break between The Rise of Skywalker and the 2022 film appears to constitute the Star Wars hiatus Disney CEO Bob Iger referenced in April.
There are also other rumored Star Wars movies that have been floating around Lucasfilm since the Disney acquisition, including a potential Obi-Wan Kenobi film. For more on these projects, check out every new star wars movie and show in development.
