Yesterday, we received a glimpse of the new Star Wars film staring Felicity Jones. Today we provide you with a Star Wars calendar for all of the upcoming Star Wars films.
Rogue One – A Star Wars Story (December 16, 2016)
Director Gareth Edwards has been hired to direct the first Star Wars spinoff story. Rogue One will tell a story that exists between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, where Rebel Alliance soldiers work to steal the plans to the original Death Star.
Star Wars: Episode VIII (December 15, 2017)
While originally scheduled for May 26, 2017, this highly-anticipated sequel has been delayed by several months to Dec. 2017. Disney realised the benefits of a Christmas release during launch of The Force Awakens, and decided a December release will work well for Episode VIII. Also, that spaces the film out nicely from Rogue One, which would have originally been out only five months before. Rian Johnson will be directing this one.
Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo (May 25, 2018)
“The story focuses on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley.”
Sounds like we’ll be getting a young Han Solo in the early stages of his smuggling career. We’re guessing Harrison Ford will not be cast this time..
Star Wars: Episode IX (2019)
Rian Johnson will resume writing duties on this one, while director Colin Trevoro will be in charge of, well, directing. Little else is known about this project yet.
Star Wars Anthology: Boba Fett (2020)
No actual confirmation of the project has been made, but signs point toward the eventual production of the film, which already had director Josh Trank attached, but he since left.
Stay Tuned and we’ll keep you posted on release dates and more as they happen!
