The 2022 date gels with what Disney CEO Bob Iger said during a November 7 earnings call, when he stated that the franchise will take a hiatus following the release of the highly-anticipated conclusion to the Her contract is up in 2021, a year before the next Star Wars movie is expected to arrive .

Disney is making Star Wars fans wait after Star Wars : The Rise of Skywalker, the next movie won ' t drop until 2022 and then every two years after that. Disney announced three new Star Wars movies with the first arriving in theaters in December 2022 and then in December in 2024 and 2026.

There are, perhaps literally, more questions than answers in The Hollywood Reporter’s new profile on Kathleen Kennedy and the future of Star Wars and Lucasfilm. Reading between the hypotheticals yields only a few facts: The next Star Wars film won’t arrive until 2022; it’s not the Star Wars project being developed by Rian Johnson; Disney is planning to make an announcement in January, after the dust settles on The Rise Of Skywalker

Disney boss confirms future of Star Wars after The Rise of Skywalker

  Disney boss confirms future of Star Wars after The Rise of Skywalker Enjoy The Rise of Skywalker while you can.We've had The Force Awakens, Rogue One, The Last Jedi, Solo, and The Rise of Skywalker coming next month. Given it took nearly 30 years for the first six Star Wars films to arrive, it's tough to have too much beef with Lucasfilm – whether you liked The Last Jedi or not.

Disney hasn' t quite wrapped up the Star Wars Skywalker saga, which will come to an end this December with Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker. The others will arrive in 2024 and 2026.

According to THR, the current plan to have a new “ Star Wars ” film arrive in December 2022 is still in the works, despite the recent news that “Game of The report claims that Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has a director ready to go, but the studio likely won ’ t announce who it is until January.

Favreau has made two big live-action remakes for Disney, he’s been involved with the MCU, and he basically invented a cash-printing machine with the aforementioned Baby Yoda.

(Here’s another “likely”: the war over those toys this holiday season could very well make the great Tickle Me Elmo bloodbath of 1996 look like a minor skirmish over a parking spot in the Trader Joe’s garage.) 

But much of what THR has to say exists in the realm of conjecture—well-informed and reasonable conjecture, but conjecture no less.

Get your Jedi fix while you still can

  Get your Jedi fix while you still can Get your Jedi fix while you still canWe've had The Force Awakens, Rogue One, The Last Jedi, Solo, and The Rise of Skywalker is coming next month. Given it took nearly 30 years for the first six Star Wars films to arrive, it's tough to have too much beef with Lucasfilm – whether you liked The Last Jedi or not.

The Star Wars saga returns in 2022 , and it’s sharing some time with Pandora. Disney just revealed a bunch of new release dates, with the highlight being that three new, yet-to-be-titled Star Wars movies will be released every other December starting in 2022 .

Whether the next Star Wars trilogy comes to us from Johnson or the duo of Benioff and Weiss is to be determined. Disney simply stated that “three new as-yet-untitled Star Wars films will release on the pre-Christmas weekend every other year beginning in 2022 .” Which means we’ll see the next Star Wars

Her contract is up in 2021, a year before the next Star Wars movie is expected to arrive. Not even Kennedy seems certain of what the future holds for her career at the studio, and as THR notes, she was hired by George Lucas—not Disney.

A changing of the guard may be imminent if Bob Iger and Disney chief Alan Horn deem it necessary, and they might.
