Star Wars films

This wouldn't be a blog of mine if I didn't get back to talking Star Wars again at some point so here goes with a little update

Given the negative reaction to Episode VIII: The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story's failure to light up the box office it might be surprising to learn that there are apparently NINE Star Wars films in various stages of development. If it unclear what these are at this moment in time or whether or not it includes Episode IX. So here is some information on what we do know

  • Rian Johnson has already been confirmed to be signed on to produce a new trilogy (more info here)
  • Game Of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B.Weiss are going to write a produce a series of Star Wars films (more info here)
  • There are rumours (but still not officially conformed) that we will be seeing two more character movies on the form of Obi-Wan and Boba Fett but it remains to be seen whether or not this actually turns out to be true.

Of course there are no timelines for any of these things so it will be interesting to see if Lucasfilm stick to the one film a year plan that we've seen so far. The could take a Marvel approach and try and release two films a year or perhaps a more relaxed schedule will come in as some people seem to feel that Star Wars fatigue is setting in.

Whatever the truth might be it still looks like Star Wars films have a good future ahead of them.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering..............................

Talking of Episode IX, well we are now.... There is a very strong rumour doing that rounds that we will be seeing Mr Billy Dee Williams reprising his role as Lando Calrissian! This would be brilliant to see!
