There is not much known as to where Star Wars will be going on the big screen after The Rise of Skywalker. It has been confirmed by Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy that they would explore the galaxy and tell stories that are not connected to the Skywalker saga moving forward. Now, new details have emerged regarding the next Star Wars saga.
According to Making Star Wars, they have learned that the new saga will take place during an era called “The High Republic.” Which is said to be set nearly 400 years before the Skywalker Saga. During this time the Sith’s “Rule of Two” is established by fan-favorite character Darth Bane. A younger Yoda as a Jedi is also around during this time.
The site also reports that this new series of films will not be a trilogy, but rather a series of films that will interconnect with one another. This was the saga that Game of Thrones writers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff were attached to before dropping off the project to pursue a lucrative deal with Netflix.
As of now, it is difficult to tell which characters will be featured in this new saga films, but they will feature both Jedi and heroes who are not Jedi. Rumors have swirled regarding a Darth Bane film, and it sounds like he could finally make his appearance on the big screen as the big bad of this saga, which is scheduled to be released in December 2022.
Lucasfilm is staying busy developing new material for both the big and small screen. On February 17, The Clone Wars season 7 debuts on Disney+, later this year on Disney+ we will get the return of The Mandalorian as season 2 will debut in the Fall. Also in development are the Rogue One prequel series centered on Cassian Andor with Diego Luna reprising his role as the title character and Alan Tudyk back as his droid sidekick K-2SO, and Obi-Wan Kenobi series set to star Ewan McGregor. Both series will film this year. Rumors also swirled last Summer of a Doctor Aphra series which is based on the popular comic run, as well as a Rebels sequel series. Marvel Studios CCO Kevin Feige and director Rian Johnson are also developing their own set of Star Wars films.
