Star Wars Celebration begins a little later this month and we’re excited to see and hear what Lucasfilm has planned for the future. There is some hope that we could finally learn what they plan on doing with the films once the Skywalker Saga comes to a close with Star Wars: Episode IX.
We know that Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s Rian Johnson is writing an original trilogy with an expectation to direct the first installment and the Game of Thrones showrunners (David Benioff and D.B. Weiss) also working on their own string of original films as well. Neither projects have had anything official revealed about them other than they’re likely going to be stepping away from connections to the Skywalker Saga, hopefully becoming their own thing expanding the universe rather than recycling stuff we’ve already seen.
