Rumours persist that one or both of the new Star Wars trilogies will be set in the time period explored by video games such as Knights of the Old Republic.
That doesn't mean that the future is Star Wars-free however. There will be a Star Wars movie released every other year from 2022 for at least three movies, and they will be interspersed with four more movies in James Cameron's Avatar series. There are also multiple animated and live-action Star Wars TV series in development for the Disney+ streaming service, with the first live-action show, The Mandalorian, due for release late this year or early next.
Lucasfilm are also now actively working on a fifth Indiana Jones film, which is expected to be Harrison Ford's swansong in the role.
The current release schedule is as follows:
- December 2019: Star Wars - The Rise of Skywalker
- December 2021: Avatar 2
- December 2022: Untitled Star Wars Film 1
- December 2023: Avatar 3
- December 2024: Untitled Star Wars Film 2
- December 2025: Avatar 4
- December 2026: Untitled Star Wars Film 3
- December 2027: Avatar 5
Various other proposed stand-alone Star Wars movies, such as a Boba Fett film, appear to have been killed. Others, such as the proposed Obi-Wan movie, have been re-purposed as TV proposals instead.
