There has never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan, with both a Sequel Trilogy and three standalone films to look forward to. Star Wars: The Force Awakens kicked off a new golden age for fans. We're now going to get a Star Wars movie a year until at least 2019.
We not only will get Star Wars: Episode VIII and Star Wars: Episode IX, but so far, there are several spinoff/standalone movies on the schedule, including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a Han Solo origin movie, and maybe a Boba Fett movie, too.
That is probably only the beginning.
So, this will be the page where we keep track of all upcoming Star Wars movie releases. It might not look like much (right now), but she's got it where it counts.
synopsis: "From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves."
While originally scheduled for May 26, 2017, this highly-anticipated sequel has been delayed by several months to Dec. 2017. It makes sense, since the end of the year did so well for The Force Awakens. Also, that spaces the film out nicely from Rogue One, which would have originally been out only five months before.
Synopsis: "The story focuses on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley."
It sounds like we'll be getting a Han Solo in his late teens/early 20s, as well.
We still don't have official confirmation that this is a Boba Fett solo movie, but pretty much all signs seem to point to "yes" on this one. Josh Trank had previously been attached to direct, but he has now left the project. No word on a replacement director or writers just yet, but that should happen soon.
We expect more dates and details about all of these movies to arrive any minute. We'll keep you posted as it happens! For now, check out our monthly Star Wars podcast, Blaster Canon!
