1. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
When: December 20, 2019
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set to dominate Philippine cinemas this December 20. And while the franchise's final film marks the end of the Skywalker Saga, this may not be the last we see of its beloved characters.
In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, current Lucasfilm president, Kathleen Kennedy speaks of the company's plans beyond the pillar series, hinting at an extension of the world where the current trilogy's characters can be further developed. "What we've been focused on these last five or six years is finishing that family saga around the Skywalkers. Now is the time to start thinking about how to segue into something new and different," she tells the LA Times.
Revealed during the interview, Kathleen will be making "key decisions about the direction of the franchise in the coming weeks." However, the story asserts that one thing's for sure, "While the Skywalker saga is ending, the company won’t abandon the characters created in the most recent trilogy. Additionally, she said, the plan is to move beyond trilogies, which can be restricting."
Although the statement could be interpreted in a number of ways, it's not new for former Star Wars characters to return to the space world with their own movie or T.V. show. Take Ewan McGregor and Diego Luna for example, who are both set to reprise their roles in seperate Star Wars-related TV series on Disney+.
