List Of What's Coming Up in The Star Wars Universe After The Han Solo Film.

There are a lot more Star Wars movies on the way after The Last Jedi (spoiler: it's a lot)

Star Wars series has never been shy about making up for lost time. After a ten-year wait between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: The Force Awakens - which increases to a 32-year gap if you work from the date of the previous good Star Wars film.

The release of J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December 2015 kicked off a string of Star Wars stories planned by Disney and LucasFilm that will allow several other inventive storytellers to play in this particular sandbox -- sometimes continuing the trilogy started by Abrams, and sometimes branching out to tell what are being classified as "Star Wars Stories." They're now releasing a new Star Wars film every single year, meaning fans have a lot to look forward to.

Today i am going to look at every upcoming confirmed and in development movies after Solo: A Star Wars Story

1.Star Wars: Episode IX

After Star Wars: The Last Jedi ,attention now turns to Star Wars 9 and how the story will conclude, and has already been a challenging film, with Carrie Fisher's tragic death forcing dramatic rewrites of the script. Matters became further complicated when director Colin Trevorrow exited the project in September 2017 amid reports Lucasfilm were unhappy with his redrafts. Lucasfilm signed up J.J. Abrams to take over. A director who already launched the sequels in style with The Force Awakens, he'll now have to bring this story to a satisfying close. There are also reports that Daisy Ridley will reprise her role as Rey in both Episodes 8 and 9, although that has yet to be confirmed by Lucasfilm (and it likely won’t be).

2. Rian Johnson's Star Wars Trilogy

 

While Star Wars: Episode IX won't be using a script written by Rian Johnson, the beloved franchise is far from done with him. Prior to the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Lucasfilm announced that their collaboration with Johnson would continue with the development of an entire new trilogy. In November, they announced that he would launch a new trilogy outside of the Skywalker Saga. Remarkably, Johnson's pitch didn't even include a story; he's still in the early stages of drafting a plot.

Obviously, i don't know very much about this new trilogy at this point, but Johnson will definitely write and direct the first entry and he recently revealed the pitch which got him the job. Just to warn you, there's not much to it: "One story told over three movies. Go new places, meet new folks, come up with a new story to tell in the Star Wars universe. The sky’s the limit… and they [Disney] really responded to that." Based on that short and sweet pitch, Disney gave him responsibility for three new Star Wars movies so you know he's good. From that little teaser, it sounds like the trilogy will feature characters never seen before in the Star Wars universe which is pretty exciting.

3. A Boba Fett Movie

Boba Fett is tremendously popular among fans, almost in spite of his small on-screen role in the original trilogy, Lucasfilm has long toyed with the idea of producing a Boba Fett spinoff. They signed up Josh Trank as director back in 2014, but he left the project around the release of Fantastic Four. It's been in limbo ever since, although in summer there were rumors Lucasfilm was attempting to breathe life into it once again. 

The Star Wars Anthology: Boba Fett movie will tell the origin story of  bounty hunter, Boba Fett. The Mandalorian warrior will get his own film, and it’s possible that we’ll learn how he became the notorious bounty hunter.

4. Star Wars : Obi-Wan Kenobi Film

In August last year, it was revealed Lucasfilm was beginning to actually work on an Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff. The character is another popular one, and there are serious hopes Ewan McGregor will reprise the role. According to initial reports, Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry is in talks to head up the project.

5. New Star Wars Movie Series From Game of Thrones Showrunners

Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have been given a Star Wars sub-series of their own, with work due to begin most likely some time in early 2019. the news was announced directly from Starwars.com. One thing i do know is that it’ll be a series, so there’s at least two (and likely three if we go by the history of Star Wars movies).

 

Although after the cringeworthy "Last Jedi" we had lost all hopes from Star Wars, maybe these new movies and series will serve as "A New Hope" in the right direction.
