On What Dates Will Next Five Star Wars Movies Be Released?

From our friends at ComicBook.com.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (December 16, 2016) will take us to a time before Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first met on Tattoine, giving a behind-the-scenes look at how Princess Leia, R2-D2 and company came to possess the Death Star plans. Described as a "heist" movie, it will be directed by Godzilla's Gareth Edwards and star Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Forest Whitaker and more.

Star Wars Episode VIII (May 26, 2017) will continue the story of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Rey, Finn and company as they battle the First Order, comprised of the remnants of the shattered Empire and led by Supreme Leader Snoke with a little help from Kylo Ren. The film is as-yet-untitled, although that may change soon as Rian Johnson is expected to begin principal photography this month.

Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo (May 25, 2018)
is the as-yet-untitled solo film set to explore the backstory of everyone's favorite scoundrel and smuggler. Since the Star Wars Expanded Universe has been rendered non-canonical with the Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm, this will be the first "official" glimpse into the character's backstory in the newly-reworked timeline. Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, Han Solo will reportedly be the final Star Wars movie written by The Empire Strikes Back and The Force Awakens' Lawrence Kasdan.

Star Wars Episode IX (2019)
will be directed by Colin Trevorrow from a script by Rian Johnson. The film will likely close out the story of the battle with Kylo Ren and Snoke, as the earliest comments from Disney were that they were planning a new Star Wars trilogy. Whichever members of the The Force Awakens cast are still alive (their characters, not the actors, although presumably that too) will return for the film.

Star Wars Anthology: Boba Fett (2020)
is still not officially confirmed, and no creatives are officially on board, although there have been rumors for a while that the bounty hunter would have his own film. This one would also, plausibly, allow them to tie into Han Solo and/or Rogue One, creating a second, distinct timeline of Star Wars movies being released at the same time as the Episode films -- although that's pure speculation and has not been confirmed or even rumored up to now.

  1. Forget Boba Fett, his dad gets killed he is a clone, I get it. Let's make a movie about Yoda! Like a badass version of yoda, who can actually walk without a cane. Maybe explain the cane at the end or something.

    1. Yoda wasn't the first Jedi. No where near the first Jedi.

  3. Though those ideas have merit, spending the $amounts for those movies would not net the income worthy for Disney to.put effort into the idea, however comics and cartoons can be much cheaper and are both more accessible to professional fans.

  7. Qui Gon should get a movie. He's the most interesting Jedi. No one knows how he learned the secret of immortality, which he taught to Yoda. There wouldn't have been a ghost Obiwan or Anakin or Yoda if it wasn't for Qui Gon. They could tie it in to Plagueis and how he discovered how to cheat death. All of the Star Wars stories hang on this mystery.

  8. Hardly if Disney have said EU stuff isn't canon why on earth would they make movies about stuff that may or may not have happened. They nicked Luke's sons name Ben and gave it to the Solos.
