Lucasfilm has announced three upcoming Star Wars films, one of which will feature the return of Daisy Ridley as Rey.
Star Wars fans will be happy to know that three new movies are in the works. One of them will star Daisy Ridley as Rey. This film comes 15 years after the events of The Rise of Skywalker, the last film in the Skywalker saga, but also the most recent Star Wars film to hit the big screen.
It will center around Rey forming a new Jedi Order. The Oscar winner Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy (Ms. Marvel, Saving Face) will direct the film.
The next film will be directed by James Mangold (Logan, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny) and will delve into the origins of the Force and the Jedi. It will be set 25.000 years before anything else we've seen in the Star Wars universe to date, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The third film will be directed by Dave Filoni who already has some contact with the species' region. He directed the 2008 animated film “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and has been deeply involved with recent Disney+ shows such as The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka and the Skeleton Crew. Guess what; the film he is going to direct will unite the stories of these series.
Disney and Lucasfilm have not revealed release dates for either of these films. However, Disney's current slate includes the years 2025 and 2027 for untitled Star Wars films.
After the last three Star Wars films (The Last Jedi, Solo, and The Rise of Skywalker) didn't quite meet the widespread acclaim that was expected, Disney and Lucasfilm abandoned their plans to release a film every year.
Disney and Lucasfilm are obviously hoping that these three recently announced movies will reignite the success of Star Wars in theaters, even if we'll have to wait at least a few years to see the first of them.
