After a long time without movies Star Wars and without lightsabers, disney redeemed lucasfilm to breathe new life into the universe. So came out a new trilogy after the 1983 Return of the Jedi which leaves a bitter taste in the mouths of fans. Whether Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) broke the box office with over two billion dollars in worldwide revenue and good reviews, The Last Jedi and theSkywalker’s Risedespite such honorable scores, have not been able to capitalize on so much sympathy from aficionados of the universe. lucasfilm and disney have also proposed two spin-off feature films: Rogue One by Gareth Evanswho knew how to meet his public and Solo: A Star Wars Storywhich experienced a real rout at the box office, the fault of a catastrophic production and promotion campaign.

It’s on the streaming platform Disney+ that Star Wars experienced a real rise in popularity. The Mandalorian was a real success with the fans while it was quite the opposite for The Book of Boba Fett. Today’s spin-off series about a really beloved prequel character, Obi-Wan Kenobihas just released its first two episodes on the streaming platform Disney+.

To Star Wars Celebration Variety met the president of lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy and asked him what other projects Star Wars had in the future. She replied that, as long as there are good stories told, Star Wars can continue indefinitely.

“We continue to develop mandalorian . Ahsoka is the next iteration of that. And then what Jon Watts does with his show. It gives us different places on the timeline to look at, because there’s this lingering Star Wars story. This is what we rely on. So rather than thinking we’re just going to just do one story, we’re constantly thinking about what it really means in the long saga and mythology created by George Lucas. So it could go on forever, to be perfectly honest. If we have good storytellers, it will last forever. »

Remember in any case that in addition to all the projects developed for Disney + (Ahsoka, Andor, Kenobi, Mandalorian s.3, Leslye Headland’s female saga, Jon Watts’ series), lucasfilm continues to create projects for the cinema – a film of Taika Waititi would be in particular in preparation -.
