The Skywalker Saga will end with the release of Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker, but Lucasfilm is already planning other productions. About one of these, inspired by the Star Wars story: Knights of the Old Republic, Ms. Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, was interviewed by MTV.com. She confirmed the work on the project, but stressed that she was still in a preliminary phase.
“It is something that is always at the center of our discussions. Yes, we are now developing something in this sense to see in which direction to take it. Right now, I have no idea how things will sit and we have to be very careful because Star Wars movies have a rhythm of releases that we do not want to affect, it seems too many at a time. But we do not have a crystal globe, we can not predict how things are evolving. I tried a little with Solo [Star Wars Story], let’s see if we can release two movies a year, and if it’s worth going to this line and we realized it was not, so I just gave it a little bit back. But that does not mean we do not think of adapting many other stories, because, in fact, it’s exciting the Star Wars universe, “Kennedy said.
According to the producer’s statements, the Star Wars franchise will take a break after The Rise of the Skywalker, during which time the strategy will be set for the next ten years.
They were co-opted for future projects, Rian Johnson (Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi was announced at the helm of a new trilogy) and the creators of Game of Thrones, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who are said to be directing a Star Wars series whose action takes place well before the events in the Skywalker saga, which is why they speculate that the project they are going to deal with will be even Knights of Old Republic.
This year, however, Star Wars fans will be able to watch two adventures placed in the famous SF universe. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker launches in cinemas in December (on December 20th at us), and the first season of The Mandalorian series will premiere one month earlier (November 12th) on the new Disney + online streaming channel.
