Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm meant that there would be a lot more Star Wars movies – and having already said that she into produce them for years to come, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy headed to The Star Wars Show, to talk immediate plans for the sci-fi epic’s future.
She explained: “We’re sitting down now, we’re talking about the next ten years of Star Wars stories and we’re looking at narratively where that might go […] Future stories beyond Episode IX, with these new characters, Rey, Poe, Finn, BB-8, but we’re also looking at working with people that are interested in coming into the Star Wars world and taking us to places that we haven’t been yet, and that’s exciting too because it’s a vast galaxy far, far away. The possibilities are endless.”
There’s a lot of Star Wars on the horizon, with this year bringing Star Wars: The Last Jedi, followed by Solo: A Star Wars Story next May, and JJ Abrams’ Episode IX coming in 2019. As well as these, there are a number of films in early development stages, like an untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi film, and talks of more character-focused films for Jabba, Boba Fett and more.
