Star Wars fans have been treated to three fresh instalments of the sci-fi saga since 2015 and the films are set to keep on coming.
After the successful release of The Force Awakens (2015), Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) and The Last Jedi (2017), Disney plans to produce a new Star Wars movie every year for the foreseeable future.
With three more already confirmed before the end of 2020, here is a breakdown of what viewers can expect.
Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
Directed by Ron Howard, Solo will tell the story of a young Han Solo and Chewbacca, before they joined The Rebellion.
The highly-anticipated film will star Alden Ehrenreich as Han, alongside Emilia Clarke as Kira and Donald Glover as fan-favourite Lando Calrissian. Woody Harrelson also features.
Rumours are already flying that the film will show Han winning the Millennium Falcon from Lando before making the Kessell Run in less than 12 parsecs.
Solo is due to be released in the United States on May 25, 2018 – the 41st anniversary of the release of A New Hope.
Star Wars: Episode IX (2019)
The final instalment of the sequel trilogy is due to drop on December 20, 2019, and will see the last splinters of The Resistance continue their struggle to defeat the First Order.
Little is known about Episode IX, though it has been confirmed that Princess Leia will not feature in any capacity, following Carrie Fisher’s tragic death at the end of last year.
In an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said: “Unfortunately, Carrie passed away, so by the time we were well underway with Episode 9 – in our thoughts, we had not written the script yet – we regrouped, we started over again in January, so sadly Carrie will not be in [Episode] 9.”
Under the working title Black Diamond and directed by JJ Abrams, the film will need to tie up a number of storylines, including the fate of the tormented Kylo Ren and the extent of Rey’s abilities with the Force.
A Boba Fett Movie (2020)
A film centred around the bounty hunter Boba Fett has been in the works for some time, though it has suffered a number of setbacks.
Disputes over scenes led to a director change but a source has told Hollywood Reporter than the movie is still very much on the cards.
“Rest assured, the Boba Fett movie is not dead,” the source said. “As far as I can tell, the movie will most likely not be an origin story.
“It’s not strictly a Boba Fett movie, but a film about an ensemble of bounty hunters on an adventure.
“It sounds as though Fett is just one important component to the movie as opposed to the central character.”
Other possible spin-off movies could see Yoda in the 900 years before his death and Ewan McGregor reprising his role as Obi Wan Kenobi.
