Additionally, there are other titles in the works with less specific details so far. &#65279Thor Ragnarok&#65279 director Taika &#65279Waititi is involved in an upcoming film. Given the Marvel project’s sci fi themes, it seems like a good fit to have Waititi in the creative process. Since he has a knack for humor, the feature could be one of the most comedic in the history of &#65279Star Wars&#65279.

Rian Johnson, who helmed &#65279The Last Jedi&#65279, is rumored to have an upcoming trilogy of his own. While most critics seemed to love his take on the IP, fans were mixed over the movie. &#65279In an interview with Variety, Johnson basically said the ball is in Lucasfilm’s court over whether or not the trilogy will come into existence. Also, MCU head Kevin Feige has been rumored to be working on his own &#65279Star Wars&#65279theatrical experience.

With all the films, in addition to the myriad of tv shows, it can be easily forgotten that people have not seen &#65279Star Wars&#65279on the big screen in only two years since &#65279The Rise of Skywalker&#65279 came out. &#65279That title received mixed reactions from both critics and fans. On the television side, many projects are going to be unveiled. The popular &#65279Mandalorian&#65279series is working on its third season. A spin-off, starring a beloved bounty hunter called &#65279The Book of Boba Fett&#65279is going to come out in December of this year. Other shows include one centered on Obi-Wan Kenobi, another around &#65279Rogue One&#65279’s Cassian Andor, an &#65279Ahsoka&#65279spin-off of &#65279The Mandalorian&#65279, and a project around a female Jedi set hundreds of years before the events of the prequels. &#65279Clearly the franchise is not going to go away anytime soon. &#65279

The recent history of big screen &#65279Star Wars&#65279titles has been mixed. &#65279Rogue One&#65279 did well at the box office, having earned over $1 billion. However, &#65279Solo: A Star Wars Story&#65279received mixed reviews and is generally considered a box office disappointment. &#65279&#65279Couple that with the previously discussed information on &#65279The Last Jedi&#65279and &#65279The Rise of Skywalker&#65279, and it’s easy to see why some might be hesitant to two releases a year. Hopefully the new theatrical experiences have better reactions. This news originated at GiantFreakinRobot.
