I am a huge fan of Star Wars, so this was one very interesting topic to write about. I would be happy to hear your opinions on this.

What Does the Future Hold for Star Wars?

Since 1977, when the first movie came out, Star Wars has become the second highest-grossing movie franchise ever. Only the Marvel movie franchise has made more money.

Since Disney gained the rights to Star Warsin 2012 by buying Lucasfilm for $4 billion, it has continued to expand the Star Warsuniverse, including five new movies and the first live-action Star Wars TV series, The Mandalorian. But what's next?

After the success of the first season of The Mandalorian, it's no surprise that a second season is on the way, due to be released on Disney+ in October. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new season will feature a famous character from the original Star Wars trilogy, Boba Fett. He will be played by Temuera Morrison, who portrayed Boba Fett's "father," Jango Fett, in the 2002 film Attack of the Clones.

Another live-action TV series will focus on Cassian Andor, the hero from the 2016 movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The series will be a spy thriller, set in the time leading up to the events of Rogue One.

A third planned live-action TV series will be about Obi-Wan Kenobi starring Ewan McGregor, who portrayed a younger version of the character in the 1999 movie The Phantom Menace. Kenobi was originally played in the first Star Wars movies by Sir Alec Guinness, who died in 2000.

When it comes to new movies, Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm, has said that the studio will move away from making trilogies and instead let the stories they tell dictate the number of movies they make.

At the moment, there are at least three new Star Wars movies being worked on, planned for 2022, 2024 and 2026. It was recently reported that one of the new movies will be directed by New Zealand's Taika Waititi, who recently directed the Marvel movie Thor: Ragnarok and the season one finale of The Mandalorian. And Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, is also reportedly working on a Star Wars movie of his own.
