And those of Rian Johnson and Kevin Feige?
The cover of Vanity Fair devoted to series Star Wars creates the event, but at the heart of the magazine, the article does not forget the films to come within the saga. If the news is rather played on Disney + with the development ofObi-Wan Kenobi, Andor, The Mandalorian and Ahsoka all scheduled between this month and 2023, but also the announcement ofa children’s series directed by Jon Watts (Spider-Man: No Way Home), blockbusters are also under consideration.
Kathleen Kennedyat the head of Lucasfilm, gives an update by explaining that the next movie Star Wars will be that of Taika Waititico-written with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (1917). A project that the director of thor ragnarok and Love and Thunder (which will be released this summer at the cinema) has already been teased in the press, but it was assumed until now that it would be shot after that of Patty Jenkins, Rogue Squadronwith a release date set for December 2023. Eventually, it will be the opposite: once Waititi’s untitled blockbuster is in the box, Lucasfilm will unveil that of the director of wonder woman. The announced schedule remains the same: a film every two years from December 2023, alternating with an opus ofAvatar 2.

What works by Rian Johnson and by Kevin Feige ? They too have been teased to the public, but the producer does not give any precise date. It is known that Michael Waldron (Loki, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) was hired to write the second, and Kennedy comments on it: “I’d love to see what movie he’s coming up with, but right now there’s nothing specific.” Regarding the trilogy previously announced by the director of Last Jedishe answers : “Rian is currently very busy with the deal he signed with Netflix for the sequels toAt daggers drawn.” She adds : “I hesitate to use the term trilogy now, because Star Wars is more of a persistent, continuous storytelling.”
