The Star Wars Celebration It has brought with it quite a bombshell for all of us who were wondering about plans for more films in the science fiction franchise. And said and done: Lucasfilm has confirmed that it has a set of three new films in the works.. Of course, as they promised at the time, we will not have a new trilogy.
Announced by Kathleen Kennedy herself, they will be James Mangold (‘Logan’), dave filoni (‘The Mandalorian’) and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (‘Ms. Marvel’) those in charge of directing the respective films, which will each take us to a specific time in the history of the galaxy.
While details are still somewhat scant, Lucasfilm has revealed that the James Mangold movie It will take place during “Dawn of the Jedi”. The reference could be to the homonymous comic by John Ostrander and if so, it would take us to the very origins of the Jedi order, some 26 millennia before the original saga.
On the other hand, that of Dave Filoni will serve to close the plots that we’ve been seeing these last few years in ‘The Mandalorian’, ‘Ahsoka’ and ‘The Book of Boba Fett’. Finally, Obaid-Chinoy’s will star Rey (Daisy Ridley) as she tries to create a new Jedi order 15 years after the events of ‘Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker’.
It seems that it is confirmed that those responsible for Star Wars they want to start separating themselves, albeit timidly, from the usual times. Which is a joy because I think it’s interesting to expand (as will ‘The Acolyte’). Now we will have to see the result.
